No More Waiting on Hold When Reaching Airbnb Customer Service!
Airbnb is a global marketplace and communication network that allows owners and guests to rent or offer short-term accommodation in more than 100,000 cities around the world. It has grown into one of the most popular lodging options for travelers looking for a more personalized experience compared to hotels.
By using Airbnb's website or app, users can search for available properties in the desired location. There are now over 7 million active listings worldwide with over 10 million guest arrivals per month. Airbnb's services are used for leisure holidays, business trips, and renting out homes or apartments for the night. As more and more people use the service, it has also become increasingly important to have customer service available at all times.
With that being said, we know that sometimes things can go wrong during a stay. Whether you want to report a problem or get help with something else, we’re here to assist you in reaching Airbnb customer service as quickly and effectively as possible.

To contact Airbnb customer support agents, choose one of the following contact methods:
- By phone
- Through social media
The general customer service phone number for Airbnb is 1-844-234-2500. That said, you’ll have trouble reaching the company this way, since their phone lines are constantly busy. It’s not uncommon for the company’s Help Center to display the message that the “waiting times are longer than usual.”
That said, there are other phone numbers you can call, both for home owners and guests. To speak with a support agent over the phone, check available contact options under your Airbnb account. Depending on current availability, you will see the live chat and/or phone call options. Dial the toll-free number and inquire about the info you need.
Airbnb provides you with an option to chat with the company’s virtual assistant or a live agent. All you need to do is:
- Go to Airbnb’s Help Center
- Log in or Sign up
- Describe your issue
- Wait for the virtual assistant to help you or connect you to a live agent
You can try messaging Airbnb through social media as well, but this method will take longer than simply calling customer support. The company’s support agents check social media accounts every so often, so your message can easily be overlooked or lost in a sea of other messages.
If you still want to try reaching Airbnb customer service via social media, they are available on:
Nobody likes waiting on hold, but when you have a pressing issue with Airbnb and want it resolved as quickly as possible, it doesn’t seem like there’s a better choice. Writing an email is definitely less time-consuming, but you’d often have to wait several days for a response.
That’s why we came up with a way to connect with customer service representatives without ever having to wait on hold. That’s right—DoNotPay lets you completely bypass the phone queue!
The app can call any company’s customer service for you and will notify you as soon as a support agent takes your call. This way, you can take care of other businesses while the app takes over this tedious task, and only pick up the phone once you’re connected to a live person.
Here’s how you can skip the phone queue with DoNotPay:
- Sign up for DoNotPay in your web browser
- Choose the Skip Waiting on Hold product
- Type the name on the company
- Click on the name and select Call Now
The average waiting time will be displayed on your screen. The app will notify you when a support agent takes your call, so there’s no risk of missing the window and having to call back again.
