Airbnb has become hugely popular. Their platform offer thousands of places to stay, around the globe, in over 190 countries. As a guest you have the option to either book just a room, or an entire property, all of which can be done 100% online, directly on the Airbnb site. The only way to book Airbnb properties is directly on the Airbnb platform. They do not partner with hotel comparison sites, which also means it’s not possible to use discount codes on third party sites to lower the cost. The only way to save money directly on Airbnb is to use a Airbnb discount code or a discount voucher. Here is the list of ongoing Airbnb promo codes for 2020, including Airbnb Experience discount and Airbnb Hosting bonuses.

Earn Airlines Miles Staying At Airbnb Properties
Boost Your Airline Miles From Airbnb Stays
In the past, one of the drawbacks of using Airbnb was that you didn’t earn any airline miles for your stay. If you compare this to a stay at a typical chain hotel, you had this possibility to earn airline miles for your stay. Airbnb have realised that the ability to earn airline miles, for some customers, was a big drawback of the platform. Now it’s possible to earn miles towards flights when using Airbnb. For UK based readers the most popular option will be to earn Avios on Airbnb stays. Airbnb partnerships now allow you to earn airmiles with ANA (All Nippon Airways), British Airways (Avios), Delta Airlines and Qantas.

Airbnb Bookings Earn Avios
Earlier in the year British Airways partnered with Airbnb. Since then you have been able to earn Avios with every stay you book. Earning rates for Avios based on Airbnb stays are as follows:
- Earn 3 Avios per £1 / €1 / $1 spent
- New Airbnb customers receive a further 500 Avios as a welcome bonus
To earn Avios on Airbnb stays you need to be book via the dedicated Airbnb / British Airways partnership site.
Airbnb Hosting Promotions
If you are considering Airbnb hosting there are currently 2 deals where you can either earn either:
- 8,000 Avios through the British Airways partnership
- £190 in cashback through Topcashback
Earn Avios With Airbnb Hosting
If you sign up to be an Airbnb host through the British Airways partnership you will receive 8,000 Avios. Airmiles are received when you receive your first booking and are credited to your British Airways Executive Club account within 60 days of booking date.
If you read the above in detail you will notice that you do not need to host a stay, just receive a booking. There was a similar promotion in the US with a different airline a few years ago. People who “played the system” by manufacturing a fake stay of a friend found their Airbnb accounts being closed down. It really isn’t worth the risk!
To earn Avios for Airbnb hosting you need to be register via the dedicated Airbnb / British Airways partnership site.
Earn £190 Cashback With Airbnb Hosting
The more profitable option, instead of taking the 8,000 Avios, is to become an Airbnb host through a cashback deal. Topcashback are currently leading the way in terms of cashback and are paying £190 if you sign up to Airbnb hosting – you’re unlikely to find any Airbnb promo codes in 2020 for that amount to use on accommodation bookings! Details of the cashback states that it will be paid “on 1st property listing, once a successful booking has been made and guest checks into listing. Minimum booking value £400.“
