Ready for your group-vacation prep to get a lot less stressful? Instead of having to cover the Airbnb costs for your annual bestie getaway upfront (and start the not-so-fun job of chasing everyone to pay you back in a timely manner), the site’s new feature will save you the struggle.

Airbnb just announced its new split-pay tool, which allows you and all your BFFs to divide the reservation costs from the get-go, à la Uber’s split-fare feature. And, it’s super easy to use: The feature allows you to make a reservation and invite your friends. Then, if everyone makes the payment deadline of 72 hours, you’re good to go—otherwise the stay is canceled.

Airbnb surveyed 2,000 American wanderlusters and found 43 percent of those traveling in groups lost $1,000 or more in repayments—and 18 percent lost $10,000 or more, Condé Nast Traveler reported.

Not only does this tool remove the need for you to empty your entire bank account just to get the ball rolling for an upcoming trip, but it also prevents the whole never-getting-paid-back thing from happening, which is much more common than you even realize. Airbnb surveyed 2,000 American wanderlusters and found 43 percent of those traveling in groups lost $1,000 or more in repayments—and 18 percent lost $10,000 or more, Condé Nast Traveler reported. Sounds like the makings for an awkward flight home, huh?

Luckily, you’re now set to travel the world with your besties worry- and resentment-free—and with a whole lot more money in your pocket.

So where should the fun begin? Experience the northern lights with these Iceland Airbnbs. Or go on a boho-style vacay in Mexico.
