Our GuestPoints system

Booking a place to stay is easy with our GuestPoints system. You earn GuestPoints when you host, and you spend GuestPoints when you stay as a guest. We also gift you with GuestPoints when you sign up and complete your profile and listing so you can start booking stays right away and then host when you're ready.


It's flexible!

Every exchange tailored to your needs thanks to our 2 offers:
