Premier Host is a free, invite-only program that recognizes owners and managers who consistently deliver great traveler experiences. As soon as you meet the eligibility criteria, you’re automatically added to the program. 

You can identify a Premier Host by the badge displayed on their listing. The name of the Premier Host will not be displayed along the Contact host tab.

Track your progress  

The Premier Host scorecard, located on the Performance page, tracks your progress toward achieving Premier Host status. You can also download a report from the scorecard to learn more about your overall performance. Use the report’s filter and sort options to identify areas for improvement. 

Quarterly assessments  

We review Premier Host accounts every quarter. This ensures that we feature hosts who continually provide exceptional guest experiences. Quarterly assessments take place on February 1, May 1, August 1, and November 1.

We review performance for the past 365 days and remove accounts that no longer qualify. You’re automatically added back into the program as soon as your account meets the eligibility criteria.
