Rent Out Your Home Without the Hassle

Rent Out Your Home Without the Hassle

Traveling occasionally and leaving your empty home behind? Serviced home sharing is the way to put your empty home to good use, without having to do any of the work.

Everyone is riding the Airbnb wave these days. Travel activity has only been increasing in recent years, with over 60% of Vienna residents traveling more than 10 times a year. Many of them  seek individual experiences along the journey and enjoy staying in personal homes rather than hotels. While platforms like Airbnb are a great way to sublet your home during your own travels and cross-finance some of your travel costs, most travelers leave their vacant homes behind without renting them out as being a host requires a lot of effort and comes with a number challenges.

Host Lukas (Vienna): “I came back from my vacation and found a clean apartment plus I earned money during my absence. Someone was available at all times and the payment process was easy and transparent. I am very satisfied, therefore 5 stars.”

To make matters easier, more and more people are starting to outsource the short-term subletting process. The startup Airgreets , a professional Airbnb co-host, enables busy travelers to sublet their homes for short periods of time, completely hassle-free. Their extensive service offering includes the creation and maintenance of your apartment listing, yield management and pricing, guest communication, key handovers and cleaning services. Based on a commission model with no set-up or running costs involved, Airgreets only charge their customers 25% of the rental income as a service fee when their homes are successfully rented out.

Home sharing is the subletting of an apartment while the tenant is traveling, e.g. for a two-week summer vacation or a business trip. The average Airgreets host rents out their apartment for 50 nights a year. The startup is currently offering its services in seven cities in Germany and Austria, including Vienna, and is committed to complying with regulations surrounding short-term rentals. Their website ( provides more information on the topic of responsible home sharing.

Guests also love the Airgreets service for their fast response times and in-person check-ins. Their sheets and linen service brings hotel-style quality to homes, making guests feel extra special.

Guest Sanne: “… Instead they have a co-hosting team of very quick, reliable and kind people. Our reservation was very last minute. We decided to go to Cologne the same day we arrived and I asked if it was possible to make our reservation 7 hours before we arrived. We got a quick response that we were welcome and it was possible…”

This is the reliable must-have service for all frequent and occasional travelers who don’t have the energy, time or expertise to take on the challenge of subletting their own place. Airgreets is there for you every step along the way.
