Smart key sharing and check-in for Airbnb guests

26-Jun-2018 22:19:18 / by Kjetil Faye Lund

Airbnb has done what it can to make checking in plain and simple.

For example, the tool that lets hosts spell out check-in instructions within the app, all in a simple flow, to make sure guests have all the info they need at their fingertips. 

The integrated check-in flow within the app and on the web show detailed, step-by-step instructions on how to check in to a listing. Airbnb will send an email three days before the guest’s trip with the same instructions. This way, hosts can set up comprehensive check-in instructions that are sent to guests automatically.

But that hasn’t solved the biggest problem of all: the key.

For one, people don’t often have a lot of interest in meeting strangers, especially when they’re fresh off a plane or road trip. Secondly, it’s annoying to block out that time (sometimes getting off work) to go hand off a key to an Airbnb guest.

That’s where Sharebox comes in to play, for any Airbnb host.
