Airbnb is attempting to put the kibosh on disruptive post-vaccine summer parties by launching its “Summer of Responsible Travel” plan, focused on offering more support to hosts and their neighbors, and adjusting its policies to prevent Airbnbs from being used for things other than calm, socially distanced stays.
Airbnb already has a 16-person limit on gatherings As the policy stands now, there are still some loopholes that might allow big Fourth of July celebrations to happen.
On that holiday, it canceled already-booked one-night reservations and refunded hosts, but it doesn’t seem to be taking the same tack with the Fourth of July.
The last time Airbnb blocked and canceled reservations for an event was during President Biden’s inauguration week, but its Fourth of July policy is more lenient.
Even still, Airbnb is potentially impacting people who planned to book a spot and cutting itself out of reservation money in the process.
Airbnb will also begin to offer discounts on noise detection devices through a company called Minut.
Airbnb says hosts will be required to mention if they use Minut’s devices on their listing pages.
Neighborhood Support is a 24/7 service neighbors can use to complain about Airbnbs, sort of a first layer of protection to keep hosts and guests from necessarily having to deal with local authorities over something like a noise complaint — assuming an annoyed neighbor knows to call the hotline number (855-635-7754) to begin with.
