Airbnb sees success in Pennsylvania, party ban in New Jersey, places permanent party ban on listings across the world – CBS Philly
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Airbnb is imposing a permanent party ban on all parties and events in Airbnb listings around the world. A temporary ban was put in place in August 2020 and new statistics show the ban has proven effective, according to Airbnb.
“We believe there is a direct correlation between our implementation of the policy in August 2020 and a global 44% year-over-year decline in party reporting rates,” Airbnb said in a statement. .

“We had even more success in Pennsylvania, where there was a 59% year-over-year drop in party reporting, as well as in New Jersey, where there was a drop up 68% year-over-year in party reporting,” Airbnb said. .
Strict anti-party measures are in place for the upcoming 4th of July holiday weekend. Travelers who do not have a history of positive reviews on Airbnb will be prohibited from making one-night reservations at entire listings.
