Airbnb Calculator: How Much Can You Make On Airbnb?

Whether you’re thinking of putting your vacation home on Airbnb, have been hosting guests for a while, or are even thinking about investing in a vacation rental property, the biggest question for most is simply, “How much money can I make?”

The answer to that question depends on a lot of variables. What’s your property like? Where is it? How many guests can it host? How much will you be using the property yourself? What kind of average occupancy rate can you expect? At what price will you offer your Airbnb listing for rent? The answer to these questions and many others will be the main determinant of how much you’ll make from your property.

However, you can still get a good idea of what is possible and which factors are most important by looking at the data. We’ve compiled revenue data across the world to see what the average host makes on Airbnb.
