What are the hours and when should I call?

AirBnB operates the call center for this 855-424-7262 phone number 24 hours, 7 days. The short answer is that you should call on a Tuesday. This observation and the following section are based on analysis of a sample set of 7,676 calls made in the last 90 days using our free, web-based phone (see above).
An important note: busy times vs hold times vs best time to call
When we refer to busy or less busy times, we are talking about the volume of calls. The busiest times are when the most people are calling this AirBnB phone number (least busy times have fewer people calling). This high call volume does not necessarily mean that you will have a long hold time when you call. Companies like AirBnB staff their call centers differently based on the time of day and day of the week, so you may experience a shorter wait on hold at the busiest of times. When we refer to the best time to call, we are referring to the optimal combination of lower call volume and shorter wait times.

The least busy time to call

The least busy day to call AirBnB is Sunday. The most busy day to call is Thursday, which averages 107% more phone calls by comparison. Again, this is based on a sample of 7,676 calls made with our AI-powered, web-based phone in the last 90 days.

The shortest wait on hold

We measured the shortest hold times to be on Tuesday. The longest wait in the queue on average occurs on Sunday, which is 45% longer than the minimum. Most companies see more fluctuation in the length of hold times, but as you can see, time spent waiting for a AirBnB representative is more consistent than the number of calls throughout the week.

The best time to call AirBnB

In summation, the best day to call AirBnB is Tuesday. It isn't the least busy day, but the fact that hold times are shortest combined with it being on the busy side tells us that AirBnB staffs up on Tuesday to handle the higher call volume, and that makes it the best time to call.

Calling this AirBnB Customer Number

Jeff Whelpley is the editor / author responsible for this content.
Sep 5, 2023

Calling Airbnb seems to be designed more for customers who have already booked a reservation with the website rather than those who need information. When I dialed, I was first told that the system did not recognize my number and gave me the option of entering another phone number that did have an Airbnb account.

If I didn't have another number tied to an Airbnb account, I could press 2 for other assistance and did so. I was then asked to say what I was calling about, or I could use my phone's buttons to enter my concern. I opted to do the latter, but I never got a chance to enter a menu selection. Instead, I was directed straight to a representative, who asked what I was calling about.

I told him I was attempting to book an Airbnb stay in Hawaii for three weeks, but I was only finding options to allow me to book my stay for a minimum of 30 days. He seemed completely confused by the question, so I repeated the situation for him. He asked if I was already an Airbnb customer, and I told him I was simply looking to get information. He said he would look into my question and asked me to hold.

I told him that was fine and waited for him to return to the line. After I waited for several minutes, he returned to the line and asked me again what I was calling about in regards to only finding a 30-day minimum for a stay in Hawaii. I told him that was the situation for the third time, and he asked me for my phone number. At this point, I decided I wasn't going to get any real help from him and ended the call.

Maybe you get better customer service from Airbnb if you've actually purchased a stay and you're calling for specific questions about it, but in my own experience, I didn't get anything close to good customer service. The representative tried to be helpful but seemed to have no idea what I was asking and couldn't get past my opening question. Having to wait on hold for several minutes only to be asked again what I was calling about didn't exactly inspire confidence that he'd be able to give me any trustworthy information. Instead, I felt like my call with him was a waste of my time.

Overall, I would not use this phone number for customer service help unless I'd already booked with Airbnb. Even then, I'd only use this as a last resort, as my experience with this call left me feeling like any help I'd get from calling would be insufficient if I genuinely needed assistance.

Why Customers Call AirBnB

If you have time to do a bit of reading before you call AirBnB, we recommend you read over some of our problem-specific articles.

What Is AirBnB's Cancelation Policy?

Airbnb's cancelation policy provides guests with different options for receiving a refund depending on the circumstances of the reservation and what type of policy the guests selected. You should carefully read the terms and conditions before making a reservation, whether it's flexible, moderate, strict or super strict. Understanding the conditions you should meet to receive a refund for your travel plans can help you avoid unexpected costs.

How Do I Access My AirBnB Travel Credit?

If you are planning a trip and wish to stay with an Airbnb host, check your account to see if you have any travel credits or coupons you can apply to your total stay. Through the referral program, you can earn credits to apply to future Airbnb stays, and your friends and family can earn discount coupons when you refer them. Credits are automatically added to your account and can be accessed at checkout when you book a stay.

How Do I Recover My AirBnB Account?

This Gethuman guide advises Airbnb hosts and guests how to recover a forgotten password, as well as update personal information, such as their email address and phone number. The only way to change a forgotten or inaccessible email or phone number is by contacting AIrbnb customer service. Additionally, deleted accounts cannot be recovered; however, deactivated accounts can be reactivated by contact customer service.

More AirBnB Customer Service Contacts

There are of course other ways to contact AirBnB customer service besides the phone. Below we list the best ones, by medium.

AirBnB Customer Service Live Chat

airbnb.com - Customer Service
Select what is your question about and it will give you chat options
If phone-based customer service is not available, or the wait times are long, many people prefer chat as a next-best option. Some even prefer it to calling on the phone. Luckily, AirBnB provides this option.

AirBnB Customer Service on X (formerly Twitter)

twitter.com/airbnbhelp - Customer Service
Use the link to connect with customer service through Twitter
AirBnB, like many companies, provides customer service on the X platform (formerly Twitter). While it rarely entails live dialogue with a customer service rep, this channel can yield rapid response times and can be a useful option if you have an X/Twitter account.

AirBnB Customer Help Desk / Web Support

airbnb.com - Customer Service
Online customer service support
As a last, sometimes only, resort- AirBnB customer service can be accessed through their website. This can entail digging through help articles before finding a form and "being allowed" to submit a problem to their team, and rarely leads to a real-time conversation, which is why GetHuman does not recommend this unless it's the only way.
