We’re proud to announce a first-of-its-kind integration between American Express and Airbnb to allow you to seamlessly access over 1.5 million homes around the world so that you can truly belong anywhere.

Long before Airbnb was founded, there was a travel pioneer called American Express. In 1891, the financial institution brought the concept of Travelers Cheques to the mainstream, helping travelers feel more secure when they traveled in the US or abroad. And now, more than a century later, this innovation continues with a flagship partnership with Airbnb.

What does this mean as an American Express® Card Member?

  • Eligible Card Members will now be able to use Membership Rewards® points for all or part of your next Airbnb booking, and you can do so directly on our site.
  • As a first time Airbnb user, you will now be able to use your Amex login to sign up — the one you already know and trust — and complete your profile on Airbnb.
  • Once you’ve created your account with your Amex login, we’ll introduce you to the Airbnb community with an additional layer of verification added to your Airbnb profile. If you already have an Airbnb login, it’s easy to add the American Express badge to your profile by verifying your membership here.
  • Also, Card Members now have access to a streamlined checkout. Simply select Amex Express Checkout when booking, confirm your information, and you’re all set!
