    When you’ll pay for your reservation

    You just made a reservation—congrats! So, what happens next? In everywhere but India, your payment method will be charged as soon as your reservation is confirmed (excluding security deposits). This applies for Instant Book, too.

    No matter how far in advance you book, the Host doesn’t receive payment until 24 hours after your scheduled check-in. This gives both of you time to make sure everything is as expected.

    Payment plan  

    If you choose a payment plan, you’ll pay a portion of the total upon confirmation, and the remaining balance will be automatically charged on the date(s) listed at checkout. 

    Long-term reservations 

    For reservations of 28 nights or more, you’ll be charged an initial down payment for the first month upon confirmation. After that, you'll be charged monthly. You can review the dates of your monthly payments during checkout. Get more detail on paying for long-term reservations

    Scheduled payments

    To check when you’ll be charged for upcoming payments, after your receipt is issued:

      1. Go to Trips and select the trip you want to check
      2. Under What you’ve booked, click your reservation
      3. Under Payment info, click Get receipts
      4. Under Your payment details, go to Scheduled payments

      Security deposits

      Did your reservation require a security deposit? Expect an authorization hold for the deposit amount, applied to your payment method 48 hours before your reservation begins. Find out more about how Airbnb handles security deposits.
