Airbnb extends party ban until end of summer
In an effort to promote safety amid the coronavirus, Airbnb continues to promote a safer travel experience for users by continuing its global crackdown on the holidays. The house-sharing app has extended its ban on all large gatherings and parties of 16 or more people until the end of August 2021. From there, the company will reassess the security risks and determine whether the ban should be maintained.
Travel resumes and people still have health issues. Majority of Airbnb hosts on the app already don’t allow parties at home, company says, but CEO Brian Chesky wants to continue to be “good community players around the world,” according to an Airbnb statement. . While you might want to book the most desired home on Airbnb, you might want to understand the updated policy before you book your next stay.
Right now, the global community is facing an increase in COVID-19 variants, including in the United States, as the The CDC has advised against traveling to certain states. While we are eager to explore new places, Airbnb always finds it in the “best public health interest” to limit gatherings. For those who decide to go against these rules, the company already has technology and policies in place to administer violations and penalties like permanent account suspension.

Airbnb even encourages people to use the Neighborhood helpline, a resource that neighbors of Airbnb hosts can contact if they notice any security issues; which now includes large gatherings or possible parties.
If you are under 25, the app also prohibits people residing in the US, Canada, UK, France, and Spain from reserving an entire house locally, under certain circumstances.
In an effort to encourage responsible behavior, users will also find that the app has removed the “event friendly” search filter and removed all “allowed parties and events” in the House Rules section on listings. . So, if you are planning to book a stay through Airbnb with a large group of friends or family, you may need to rethink your travel arrangements.
