To configure your additional children policy for Airbnb through Stays, you must follow the steps below:

  1. Access the listing page and click on [Content];
  2. Select [House Rules];
  3. On the fields about children and babies, select [Yes] or [No], according to your policy;
  4. Save the changes.
In addition to these settings, you can count on a text field to describe in more detail guidelines about your listing for guests with babies or children.

The option of accepting children or not on Airbnb has the following behavior based on what you have selected:

  • [Yes]: allows your guests to choose your listing and the number of children and babies desired, and proceed with the instant reservation on Airbnb.
  • [No]: the guest must consult you before making a reservation on the listing if they include that they have children or babies in the stay. 

Another important point to note is that the field on the number of children and babies is not related to Airbnb. The channel has a clear policy regarding the counting of children and babies on reservations:

  • Children: between 2 and 12 years old. For them, the base capacity is the same as the maximum number of guests in the listing. As reservations are made per adult, the limit is variable per reservation.
    For example: if your listing accepts a maximum of 5 guests and the reservation has 3 adults, the limit for this stay will be 2 children.
  • Babies: up to the age of 2 years old. The default capacity, regardless of the listing, is up to 5 babies beyond the maximum listing capacity. As with children, it is not possible to charge additional fees on Airbnb about this.
