    If a Host asks for more money

    Don’t worry: All pricing information is included when you book—but there are a few situations where you may owe more after paying:

    • You change your reservation (EX: You add another guest)
    • Your Host makes a claim on your security deposit
    • Your Host requires taxes be paid at check-in—this should be clearly stated in the listing prior to booking
    • You booked a place, usually a hotel, that charges additional fees collected at check-in or within 48 hours of checkout—these must also be stated in the listing and your price breakdown prior to booking

    When to dispute and how to pay

    If a Host tries to charge you for something that wasn’t stated in the listing, the price breakdown, or their message thread, you can dispute it in the Resolution Center.

    If you agree with the charge, always pay the Host through the Resolution Center, never directly. Be sure to keep all payment transactions on Airbnb—otherwise, we can’t help with issues related to off-site or cash payments.
