Airbnb on Tuesday revealed a worldwide restriction on celebrations, following a momentary constraint it put in location 2 years earlier.

The business is completely prohibiting “disruptive parties and events,” that include open-invite events. “Party houses,” which individuals book to toss a big occasion for simply one night, will remain prohibited also.

Airbnb and other short-term rental platforms, such as Vrbo, have actually fought with celebration homes and massive occasions.

Airbnb put a restriction on celebration homes and presented a number of security functions in 2019 after 5 individuals were eliminated in a shooting at one of its reservations. In 2020, the business set up a worldwide restriction on all celebrations as the pandemic hit.

Airbnb stated that because it executed its policy in August 2020, it has actually seen a 44% year-over-year drop in the rate of celebration reports. “The temporary ban has proved effective, and today we are officially codifying the ban as our policy,” the business stated in a post.

But due to the method these business run, they can’t constantly stop celebrations from happening. Guests can often sign in to remote residential or commercial properties themselves while the owner is away and can welcome as many individuals over as they desire.

Airbnb stated visitors who try to break its guidelines will deal with effects differing from account suspension to complete elimination from the platform. In 2021, for instance, more than 6,600 visitors were suspended from Airbnb for breaking its celebration restriction.
