- In August 2020 Airbnb announced a temporary ban on all parties and events in listings globally.
- According to the Co., the temporary ban proved effective , therefore the company has decided to officially codify the ban as policy.
In 2020, the company announced a temporary ban on all parties and events in listings globally, which saw success in curbing guests from throwing unauthorized parties or chronic party houses that impact neighbors.
The permanent ban will mean that you can no longer use Airbnb to host “disruptive parties and events,” including open-invite gathers or having “party houses,” in which people stay to throw a large event just for one night.
Airbnb had also put a cap on 16 people in bigger houses, which can be lifted based on the host’s preferences in the coming months. Airbnb claimed that if anyone is caught breaking the policy will face a suspension or ban. Furthermore, the company noted that it has removed well over 6,600 users over the past year for violations.
