What's an Airbnb Professional Co-Host
Due to the size of our portfolio of properties and the consistent quality of our service, Pass the Keys® were invited to become an official Airbnb co-host in 2018. This exclusive status afforded Pass the Keys with a key account manager and direct integration to their systems so that we could dynamically update pricing, report on guest behaviours, and other key metrics. We have retained our benefits as a valued partner even though Airbnb have now retired the programme (2022).
