What to look for when choosing the best Airbnb in Canmore

  • Superhost

Superhosts are best rated and most experienced hosts. They have an overall rating above 4.8 (out of 5), more than 10 stays in the past year, <1% cancellation rate, which means the host is unlikely to cancel your stay (a crucial factor as we’ve had some surprises like this already), and more than 90% response rate within 24 hours.

  • Cancellation policy

Make sure to check the conditions of your host. While most hosts have a flexible cancellation policy and offer a full refund if you cancel more than 24 hours before your booked date, some hosts are less flexible.

  • Extra fees

Before you pay for your rental, make sure to check the fees that might or might not be included with the room rate. Service fee is a mandatory fee for every rental period and covers 24/7 support. The host charges a cleaning fee, but sometimes there’s none.
