Airbnb will provide EV owners with superchargers. The superchargers will be given to Airbnb by Tesla itself. Tesla will give the chargers for free to Airbnb. Tesla is giving more than 100 chargers free to the Airbnb in the West Coast.

The chargers will be available in especially the premium renting properties. People especially gong on a vacation and renting out the Airbnb houses can avail from the chargers for free.  already 12 properties in the Airbnb listing have been provided with the superchargers. If more houses want to install the chargers they can apply at Airbnb. 

The superchargers will only be installed for customers who are renting out whole properties. The customers also need to have at least five bookings and a four-star rating. Even then the customers will have to be filtered for the eligibility.

Selected customers will then have to pay an additional installation fee. The installation fee ranges from $200 to $900 and will not be covered by Tesla or Airbnb.
