Show your appreciation to your host for welcoming you into their home.
Before you head to the airport, send your host your travel details (i.e. your check in/out dates and estimated arrival time.) If there are any changes to these dates and timing, let your host know right away.
Before you check-in, take time to read through your host’s house rules and cancellation policy. If your host didn’t set any house rules, ask your host when you check-in so you avoid any misunderstandings.
The place you are renting is someone’s home, treat it like you would your own. Keep the place neat and be mindful of your host’s belongings.
Before you head out for the day, make sure that you let your host know what time you expect to be back to avoid any inconvenience.
If you are sharing the place with your host or other guests, be considerate of the use of the common areas, like the shared bathroom and kitchen. Keep these areas clean after use.
Don’t invite other people to your place before clearing this with your host first. It is common courtesy to check with your host before inviting others into his/her home.
Take note of the basic etiquette in your destination. Here are some common practices across Asia Pacific:
Share your experience to the rest of the travelmob community. Highlight helpful and thoughtful gestures from your host that made your stay enjoyable.
A pleasant stay will leave a memorable travel experience for your guest.
Before your guest arrives, share your home’s complete address (directions from the airport would also be helpful) and your contact details. Also, arrange the key exchange with your guest. If you can’t welcome your guest personally, arrange with a friend or associate to meet with your guest.
Make your place clean & cozy. Be sure that all beddings and towels are fresh & clean, bathrooms are clean and the toiletries are well-stocked. If cleaning service is not provided, let your guest know where fresh linen and towels are stored.
It would be good to provide some basic items for your guest’s comfort - the usual items are hair dryer, water heater, even some light snacks like coffee and biscuits.
We suggest that you complete the house rules section on your listing page so you communicate these to your guests early on. Or, share your house rules upon your guest’s arrival.
After your guest checks in, show your guest to his/her room, the designated bathrooms and common areas. In the kitchen, you can show where all the dishes and utensils are stored.
Do something a little different to make your guest’s stay memorable. Welcome your guest with a personal note or even offer local treats. Thoughtful gestures like providing slippers to use inside your home or city maps, sharing some of the cool places to visit in your city or letting your guest know of convenience stores, banks, train stations in your neighborhood would be much appreciated. These little gestures will make your guest feel welcome to your home. Guests also tend to take note of these memorable experiences when writing their reviews.
Share your contact details with your guest so that he/she can reach you for any questions or concerns.
Share your experience to the rest of the travelmob community. Tell us your positive experiences with your guest that made your hosting experience successful
