How do I set up a security deposit on Airbnb?

The security deposit amount is set by Airbnb, and you'll always have a chance to review the amount before you decide to make a reservation. Two days before your stay begins, an authorization hold for the security deposit amount will be placed on your payment method.

To add or edit a security deposit:

Secondly, how much should my security deposit be Airbnb? Guests will be shown the amount of an Airbnb-required security deposit when they're booking the reservation. We calculate the security deposit amount according to 60% of a listing's nightly rate (this amount adjusts for longer stays). There is a $1,000 USD limit for Airbnb-required security deposits.

Also question is, is the security deposit included in Airbnb?

Airbnb does not require a security deposit for all reservations. If something goes wrong and there was no security deposit, hosts are still covered by our Host Guarantee. All claims are subject to our Host Guarantee Terms and Conditions. Learn more about how Airbnb handles security deposits.

Can Airbnb charge my card for damages?

So whether you are a host or a guest, do not be scared of the deposit rule. Airbnb will not charge for damages for no good reason. The Airbnb security deposit is not charged to guests until a claim is filed. Even then, guests can dispute it.
