Instant Book listings allow a traveler to automatically book a property without sending an approval request to the host.

Guests can use filters to search for properties that can be booked instantly. Instant Book listings are more popular with guests which in turn is beneficial for the hosts as it allows them to maximize their reservations.

When you activate Instant Book for your listing, it becomes valid for all available dates in your calendar. From this point on, booking requests will be accepted automatically for travelers that meet your pre-determined requirements.
