Airbnb STR license
In various countries and city's you will have to have a valid license for your short term rental property. Without this license, your listing might not be published or can only accept guests staying for a minimum of 30 days.
To manage your license, log in to Airbnb, manage your listings, open one listing and go to tab "regulations". Here you can upload, review your license information.
When your registration failed
- Contact your local city authority to provide you with proof your listing is valid for short term rental.
- Ask local city authorities to contact Airbnb to inform them your listing is valid for short term rental.
- In the event, it takes a couple of days or your city doesn't help you, contact Airbnb by email with your case.
What does this mean for your Hostaway API connection?
When the license has issues the connection will become unstable. In some cases, you might be able to handle still last guest requests but calendar or message updates will not update as expected on Airbnb. When the Hostaway system starts to detect this we try to inform you by email and in various other places provide warnings. It's important you act on this as soon as you are notified about this by Airbnb or Hostaway.
Although Hostaway tries to provide superior support in all cases. Due to the "legal" impact of license issues, we are not authorized nor have access to information to assist you with specific license issues. When the issue is fully resolved by you, our team can assist to review if the connection is working again as expected.
