What does Airbnb Scraper do?

This scraper can extract all listings for a particular area and all details for a particular Airbnb listing. Airbnb usually only provides the first 300 results on the website and limits the API to 1,000 results. But with our unofficial Airbnb API, you can access all possible results. Now you can:

  • get all Airbnb listings from one location: rating, price, number of guests, location details, indicated address, URL, reviews.
  • extract all Airbnb reviews from one listing: initial comments, responses, name, rating, language, author ID, posting time, and lots more.
  • get Airbnb prices in various currencies.
  • specify price range, check-in, and check-out dates.
  • scrape listings one by one or by pasting an external link with a list of URLs to scrape (CSV, Google Sheets).

How much does it cost to scrape Airbnb?

Running Airbnb Scraper once will get you 1,000 results for less than USD 1 in Apify platform credits. For more details about the plans we offer, platform credits, and usage, see the platform pricing page or this video guide on ▷ how to choose the right subscription plan.

  • Find emerging trends and gain competitive intelligence for the travel industry and adapt your own pricing.
  • Analyze customer expectations and preferences in terms of price range, housing size, features, available infrastructure, and much more.
  • Analyze reviews using sentiment analysis to identify the most successful locations in town.
  • Narrow down emerging popular locations to target with the new touring or lodging offers.
  • Support your decisions with data when deciding to open pr visit a new spot away from most popular destinations.

How to scrape Airbnb Destination or Airbnb Place

There are two ways you can scrape Airbnb: either by Destination or by Place.

  1. Scraping by Destination will get you data from Airbnb search results page. You'll get main info on all available listings in any city or town.
  2. Scraping by Place will get you all details from a single rental listing (reviews, price, availability). You can add as many listings as you want.

How to scrape all Airbnb listings in an area

It's super easy to get all Airbnb listings by Destination. Just enter the city name as you would do it in and Airbnb search, then indicate the number of results you want to scrape.

How to scrape all details from a single rental listing

It is also easy to get all details for a specific listing. Just enter the URL of the home listing you want to scrape. Note that this parameter only accepts direct listing URLs. Using this field, you can:

  • scrape just one URL (one Airbnb listing).
  • scrape multiple URLs in parallel by adding more URL fields.
  • for convenience, instead of adding multiple URL fields, you can also paste a link to Google Sheets or a CSV containing the list of your URLs.
  • paste original or shortened abnb.me URLs.

Limitations

  • In order to accomplish the run, the scraper mainly splits the location into smaller areas and divides the price range into smaller ranges. Because of this approach, you might see more crawling pages compared to the results you get, and the run of this actor might take longer to complete.
  • Airbnb Places field will only scrape from a URL of a specific listing. This parameter cannot be used for other URLs, such as search result URL, for instance.

Other travel scrapers

We have other tourism-related scrapers for you to try, such as Booking Scraper and Tripadvisor Scraper. If you're interested in those, browse the Travel Category in Apify Store.
