Be wary of Airbnb price fluctuations

08-Jun-2018 15:47:17 / by Kjetil Faye Lund

There’s something that many Airbnb hosts have in common with hotels: They may raise prices during peak travel seasons.

The savviest hosts use dynamic pricing tools that automatically hike prices when demand is likely to be high, similar to Uber’s surge pricing.

In some cases, Airbnb may be even pricier than a comparable hotel. If you find a listing you love and you are looking to save some cash, there are methods to determine when prices will be lower.

By default, an Airbnb listing shows a base price. The simplest way to look at a listing’s fluctuations is to open its calendar and click on dates that will probably be in high demand, like New Year’s Eve. Weekend prices are also generally higher than weekday prices. From there, you can calculate a modest price for that listing and look for dates with that pricing.
