Airbnb officially bans parties from its listings in new policy

The agency of rental short term airbnb is permanently banning parties in the properties listed on its site, the company disclosed on Tuesday.

“We know that the vast majority of our hosts share their homes responsibly, just as the vast majority of guests are responsible and treat their listings and neighborhoods as if they were their own,” Airbnb said in a statement.

Airbnb suspends all parties at its properties

He explained that they focus on trying to deter the very rare cases of Hosts not operating responsibly, or guests trying to host unauthorized parties. Those who violate the policy will be suspended or removed from the platform.

It is worth mentioning that Airbnb used to leave the decision of organizing parties to the hosts. Then, in 2019, he banned “open invite” parties and “chronic party houses.”

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, with bars and clubs closing, people started bringing their parties to Airbnbs. The company temporarily banned parties in August 2020 to slow the spread of the virus. Since then, reports of parties are down 44% year over year, Airbnb said.

In 2021, around 6,600 people were suspended from Airbnb for violating the temporary ban. At the time, there was a 16-person limit on gatherings, which has since been lifted.

The temporary ban received positive feedback from hosts and politicians, Airbnb said.

“Over time, the party ban became much more than a public health measure,” he said. “It became a critical community policy to support our hosts and their neighbors.”
