Pissed Consumer Interviews ?
Could not use my preloaded travel card (Which I had organised pre-trip to pay for my accomodation) because of the cards origin. Was looking to book in the uk so listing was in GBP, my card was loaded with GBP, didn't think this would be a problem. But every time I tried to pay the amount was being converted back to AUD and so would be charged in AUD (Slugging me with a 6% conversion fee back to AUD from GBP). After three days of being shunted backwards and forwards between people, being told it was a system glitch or that I would receive a call back 5 times and hearing nothing, being told I needed to download a whole new browser or emptying my cache , or wait 24 hours and start again, not only did I miss out on one of the properties I was trying to book, but they finally decided to tell me it could not be done. I could not use my pre loaded travel card to purchase accomodation overseas, because It would always revert back to AUD. Pretty useless for a travel site, I suppose they must really enjoy charging conversion fees. Thanks a lot airbnb, you've literally ruined my holiday.
Yes, I have tried to contact them! I have a "list" of reps I have talked with: Christine, Diane, Kanal, Brandon, Elijah, Matricous...they ALL say the same thing that nothing can be done except thru their Trust and Safety Department and that they will call me back (it's...Read more

Air Bnb is very risky to travel with they can cancel your booking at any time on you! Travel at your own risk... To add insult to injury the customer service is a nightmare and they send your call to their slave labor department in the Phillipines or Pakistan where...Read more
I paid for a room last year, but the host cancelled so I got a hotel. A year later I found they DID NOT refund my money back on to my credit card, but they kept it as a COUPON and if I didn't use it, it was expiring in a week so I would have lost $148!!!! I was forced...Read more

Someone accepted our booking for a camper van then immediately cancelled but not before they had taken £377 of my money. Air bnb apologised but said they can’t return my money for up to 5 days. There are no other camper vans available on Airbnb for the dates I want so...Read more
We stayed in an Airbnb in Italy, and were quite upset to see that the sheets had not been washed. We could also see hairs on the sheets, from the previous renter. We stayed only one night, and came in late; so we just went to sleep anyway. It was very hot in Italy and...Read more

Airbnb - Denied promised money
Airbnb sent me a notice that they would be sending me a referral fee and then reneged. Their customer disservice department got back to me and requested that I refer others in the future to get a fee. There is no way to speak directly to the department you need to speak to.
I made a reservation on Aug 9 and my credit card was charged.Then the host contacted me saying he wanted more money.I called airbnb and they claim to have tried to get in touch with the host to no avail. It is now Aug 27 and my trip is supposed to be Sept 1 and I now...Read more
I have had several bad experiences using BNB, the last one occurring in N. Minneapolis has opened my eyes to the new era of slumlord being birthed on the platform that these scumturds facilitate. I made correspondence with the host before I had booked, explaining the...Read more
