Personal Bookings

You’ve put a lot of love into your Airbnb and who better to share it with than your friends, family or enjoy it yourself! Book your own Airbnb through Loftium to get a discounted rate compared to booking it through Airbnb. When you book with Loftium, you’ll only cover the cost of the nightly rate, and you’ll avoid Airbnb fees.

Step One: Calculate the price

Open up your listing calendar and determine the price of the dates you'd like to reserve. When you book your own Airbnb, you don't need to pay any of the fees, just the base nightly cost on the calendar. 

This is the number you're looking for!

Add those numbers up and if the price looks good to you, head on to step two!

Step Two: Take a screenshot, and send the request to us

Once you’re ready to book, you'll need to take a screenshot and fill out the Airbnb Personal Bookings Form, linked below.. For this you'll need a few things:

  • The dates you want to book
  • The number of nights
  • A screenshot of dates with the nightly price. An example is provided below, and see here for a guide on how to take a screenshot: Link)

The form for submitting the Personal Booking request is here: Link

 

Step Three: Receive approval, and reserve your calendar

A Loftium team member will reach out within 1-2 business days to approve your request, and provide a reservation number. Most bookings are approved as long as your calendar is available.

Once you receive the approval make sure to reserve your Airbnb Calendar. You'll need to select the days then set days to blocked. In the note field include "PERSONAL RESERVATION: NUMBER PROVIDED IN EMAIL"  Note: When reserving your Airbnb calendar, do not include the check-out date.

 It's incredibly important to remember to block your Airbnb calendar. If you don't, a guest may book those nights instead, and we will be unable to cancel their reservation.

After that, proceed to your Cozy.co account and make a payment for the amount you calculated. Make sure to include your reservation number in the Memo section. 

You're all set! If you completed all the steps above, your booking will be locked in and it's all yours! Enjoy your friends or family or maybe just some time-off!
