How do I book an experience on WingX?
When you book an experience on WingX, you’re making arrangements to stay in someone’s home. Each host has their own style of hospitality, starting with how they like to get to know their guests. Some hosts want to approve reservations, while others are comfortable letting you book an experience instantly without waiting for approval.
1. Complete Your ProfileIn either case, it’s important to know that WingX is a community that relies on trust. Complete your profile before you request a reservation with a host, so they can know a little bit about you when they confirm. Your profile should include photos and verifications, especially because some hosts require guests to have a profile photo or Verified ID in order to book an experience.
2. Find the Right Experience
When searching for an experience, make sure to include your dates and number of guests to get the most accurate pricing. Read reviews, descriptions, and amenities for each activity to see if it’s the right fit for your trip. You can always contact the host if you have any questions about the activity they offer.
3. Book It!
Once you’ve found the experience of your liking, it’s time to make it official. This is where the host’s preferred way of making a reservation will determine how you’ll confirm your reservation.
Instant BookFor hosts who don’t want to approve each reservation, you’ll see a button on their listing that says Instant Book. As the name suggests, you can confirm a reservation at these places right away. Click here to learn more about Instant Book.
Request to BookMany hosts prefer to approve reservations before they’re al. In this case, you’ll see a button on their listing that says Request to Book. To submit a reservation request, you’ll need to enter your payment details. Hosts have 24 hours to accept your request, and your reservation is automatically confirmed once they do.

Pre-approvals and Special OffersIf you decide to contact the host to ask questions before attempting to book, the host may respond to your message by inviting you to make a reservation with either a pre-approval or Special Offer.
- A pre-approval is an invitation to finish booking for the dates and number of guests you noted in your message.
- A Special Offer gives the host the opportunity to provide special pricing, dates, and other reservation details before you book. Click here to learn more about booking a pre-approval or Special Offer.
