Vacation rentals and BNB top the list:10 tips for Fair Hosts
When a traveler searches for a BnB in an extended region, the results can be dozens or hundreds. How to be the first of the Fair Hosts and be immediately found? Our platform wants to be transparent in this as well: here is how the scores that determine the order of results are attributed.
Fair Hosts should first consider that travelers can choose to view vacation rentals and BnB listings in order of price. Therefore, it’s best to offer the best possible price, also because the Zero commissions on Fairbnb.coop makes the bookings received on our platform equivalent to those obtained through direct channels:
Hosts earn the same, but the benefits are for the entire community.
Also take into account that with Fairbnb.coop you can receive travelers who respect local cultures and are sensitive to the ecological footprint of their holidays.
Our previous tips for becoming a sustainable Host, ready to welcome responsible travelers, still apply.
SPOILER: newly registered vacation rentals receive a bonus score!

1. Reviews received by the vacation rentals (weight 5)
Reviews received by hosts are taken into account primarily to remove poorly performing BnB rather than to promote good vacation rentals in the search results.
The approach is that a warm and attentive welcome is the minimum expected from a Fair Host, whereas an ill-reception must be heavily penalized. We take into account the average score of the Fair Host, which is averaged by the total number of ratings received.
2. BnB calendar update (weight 4)
With up-to-date calendars, we can satisfy our responsible travelers by offering BnBs and vacation rentals that are actually available, without creating unnecessary delays: since fairbnb.coop does not do instant bookings, it can take up to 48 hours for a request to be accepted.
3. Acceptance rate (weight 4)
Travelers meet locals at the Atelier in Paris.
4. Transactions completed by the vacation rentals (weight 4)
5. Message response rate (weight 4)
6. Response time (weight 4)
7. Vacation rentals listings completion rate (weight 4)
Listing completion takes into account the amount of information provided by the host about the vacation rentals: is at least one attribute selected? Does the BnB description contain more than 250 characters? Does it have more images than the minimum required?
8. Host profile completion rate (weight 3)
9. Vacation rentals newcomer bonus (weight 3)
10. Random bonus (weight 2)
