New Years 2022: Airbnb tightens policies to crack down on NYE holidays
San Francisco, December 21: As New Years Eve approaches, online vacation rental company Airbnb has announced it is introducing new products and policies to crack down on disruptive NYE holidays.
The company said the anchor of the plan is a ban on overnight NYE bookings in entire home listings for guests without a history of positive reviews.
“As we build on the holiday ban and continue to protect our community during this unprecedented time, certain holidays, such as New Years Eve, attract higher risks of unauthorized or disruptive holidays,” said the company in a press release.

“That’s why we’re introducing new products and policies to quell disruptive NYE parties, helping to protect our guests and minimizing disruption to the neighborhood,” he added.
The company said it will roll out tighter restrictions on two-night bookings that could pose an increased risk for disruptive parties.
“For example, we will leverage and scale up our technology that restricts some local and last minute bookings by customers without a history of positive Airbnb reviews,” the company said.
Airbnb has stated that customers who have a history of positive Airbnb reviews will not be subject to these restrictions.
These criteria will be in place for customers attempting to book New Years Eve reservations in the United States (including Puerto Rico), Canada, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand, France, Spain and UK.
