When booking a flat on Airbnb one might have the following interactions with the host:
Write an introductory text about yourself and the trip
Confirm that the place is available on the dates you've selected and book
Arrange a time for the host to give you the keys
Meet the host and exchange pleasantries
Talk to the host throughout the stay (e.g. in some cases they live next doors)
Arrange to return the keys and leave the flat
If I travel to Egypt or Japan, I will of course enjoy these interactions, as this gives me plenty of time to talk to a 'local'. However if I travel to a city close-by (e.g. to Berlin from Prague), I'd rather treat the apartment as a hotel and have zero chit-chat, if possible.
So what's the absolute minimum etiquette one is expected to follow when booking a place on Airbnb? Perhaps there's something in their terms of service that mentions it?
