Can You Change Your Payout Currency?

Sadly no, you can not change your payout currency on Airbnb as it depends on the billing address you have chosen while verifying the payout method. The payout currency does not depend on the local currency where the listing is located.

This means that even if you change your default currency to see the prices in some other currency on Airbnb, you will still have to make payment in your national currency or the currency where your bank is located.


Airbnb always provides the best features to its users worldwide and showing prices in different currencies is one of them. You can change your default currency anytime you want even before booking as well.
