AirBnb Launches iPhone Alerts To Help Make Last-Minute Bookings

AirBnb Launches iPhone Alerts To Help Make Last-Minute Bookings

New push notification feature helps users find accommodations quickly.

Yi Chen


Planning a holiday can be tough work and finding an accommodation is often left until last-minute for most travelers. Airbnb realizes the potential value of helping those who are frantically searching for accommodation with less than five days until their vacation. The popular peer-to-peer accommodation service has launched a new feature that aims to match guests with hosts according to their criteria.

Guests who need a place to stay within five days can note which locations they’re interested in and the amenities they’re looking for. The push notification system will then send the message to the hosts that fit the requirements and provide the guest with real-time feedback.

Currently, guests need to search for accommodation on the site and contact each host individually. The new Airbnb match service would make it even more convenient for travelers.
