Save $50 instantly with an Airbnb discount code

While I love to stay in hotels, I often find myself booking trips at Airbnb properties throughout the year. Airbnb properties offer things that you won’t find with a chain hotel – the ability to get to know your hosts, and to really immerse yourself in a new location. And there are often some incredibly quirky Airbnb properties to find off the beaten track!airbnb referral programWhat many people don’t know is that just by using a unique Airbnb referral link, first time users can earn a $50 Airbnb coupon to use toward any new reservation of $100 AUD or more. Reading this post from another country? You can benefit, too (the Airbnb discount code amount will be converted to your country’s currency).

But what about those who already use Airbnb? Good news! The Airbnb referral program is also open to existing users. As an existing user, you’ll receive a $25 Airbnb discount code by referring friends and family using your own Airbnb referral link.

How to sign up for your $50 Airbnb discount code

You can sign up for your $50 Airbnb discount code right here (disclosure: we’ll receive a referral credit for each new account booking). Alternatively, you might prefer to obtain a link from a friend or family member who is already registered with the program. Simply click on the ‘Sign up’ button on the Airbnb referral page and complete the registration process.

There is no need to enter any information in the Airbnb promo code field. New users who sign up with an existing Airbnb referral link will see the applicable discount show up automatically on the checkout page of any qualifying reservation.

How to earn Airbnb referral credit as an existing user

If you already hold an Airbnb account, you can earn a $25 Airbnb discount when a friend or family member who signed up with your Airbnb referral link completes a qualifying reservation as a guest. You could also earn a huge $100 Airbnb referral credit when they complete a qualifying reservation as a host. There is an overall ‘cap’ of $5,000 USD in Airbnb referral credit that can be earned by both parties.

How to generate your Airbnb referral program link

As an existing user, you can generate a referral link to distribute to friends and family instantly. To begin earning Airbnb discounts, simply visit the Airbnb invitation page and follow the steps to generate your Airbnb referral link.

How to use Airbnb coupons

Aisbnb travel credits automatically appear as a coupon on the checkout page of your reservation request. If the travel credits aren’t automatically added, it means the reservation doesn’t qualify. Travel credits can’t apply to a trip that has already been paid for, but they will be available and applied to your next qualifying reservation.

Do Airbnb referral program travel credits expire?

Airbnb referral credits expire one year from the date they’re issued and can only be used once – so it’s important to keep an eye on the validity of your credits, and to book wisely! Note that Airbnb referral credits are not reusable if you cancel a reservation where the credits were applied. You can read the full Airbnb referral program terms and conditions here.

Can I use an Airbnb promo code or coupon?

No, Airbnb promo codes or coupons are rare to find as Airbnb doesn’t generally offer them publically. This is where the Airbnb referral program shines. Very rarely, an Airbnb promo code or coupon may be made available, either to first time Airbnb users or existing customers. When we find these Airbnb promo codes, we publish them here. There are no Airbnb promo codes or coupons currently available.

Earning Qantas points with Airbnb bookings

Airbnb users can also Qantas Frequent Flyer points when they stay at Airbnb properties.

Last year, Qantas and Airbnb announced a partnership that gives Qantas Frequent Flyer members the ability to earn 1 Qantas Point per AUD$1 value or equivalent in foreign currency on Airbnb bookings made through the Qantas Airbnb portal. You’ll find the full terms and conditions for the Qantas Airbnb partnership here.
