Airbnb makes its party prohibition permanent

Airbnb makes its party prohibition permanent

June 30, 2022: -On Tuesday, Airbnb announced a global ban on parties, following a temporary restriction it put in place two years ago.

The company permanently banned “disruptive parties and events,” including open-invite gatherings. “Party houses,” which people book to throw a significant event for just one night, will also stay banned.

Airbnb and other short-term rental platforms like Vrbo have struggled with party houses and large-scale events.

Airbnb banned party houses and rolled out several safety features in 2019 after five people were murdered in a shooting at one of its bookings. In 2020, the company instituted a ban on all parties as the pandemic started.

Airbnb said that since it implemented its policy, it has seen a 44% year-over-year drop in the rate of party reports. “The temporary ban has proved effective, and today we are officially codifying the ban as our policy,” the company said in a blog post.

But due to the way these companies operate, they can’t permanently stop parties from taking place.

Guests can check in to remote properties themselves while the owner is not nearby and can give the invitation to many people as they want.

Airbnb said guests attempting to violate its rules would face the consequences varying from account suspension to complete removal from the platform. In 2021, for example, over 6,600 guests were suspended from Airbnb for violating its party ban.
