Great customer service

I had a host call me the afternoon of our booking to say the place we had booked wasn't available anymore however could move us to another apartment 15min drive away. Given my work was next door I didn't want to accept the proposed unit. The host requested that I cancel as they didn't want to cancel and incur airbnb charges. If I cancelled I would have been charged cancellation fees. I called airbnb and spoke to Phoebe who immediately addressed the issue with the host and my refund came through within 30 minutes. Awesome service and thank you. This has never happened to me before and given the great service I will continue using airbnb. As for the host Apartments Domain Melbourne I will never use then again as not being charged cancellation fees by airbnb - even though they were in the wrong - was more important than serving me as their customer and most importantly doing the right thing. Thanks airbnb!!

Good work Airbnb

Airbnb has certainly revolutionised the travel industry and made new options other than hotels. The customer first focus is what I really like and need out of this service. You go to a foreign place, things are not what you expect and Airbnb is totally understanding of this. Perfect. What I would like to see is a delete message function. Currently it only goes archive. Also, I would like Airbnb and grab to partner so that I could be taken straight to the place. Currently I’d have to copy and paste that location to another app. Which isn’t intuitive. Further, why don’t Airbnb get hosts to offer free mini bar and free airport transfer services and free laundry as an option. It all adds value and everyone benefits. It may cost abit more for the room but this is convenience that travellers are sure to appreciate.
