Airbnb makes party ban permanent

Airbnb has permanently banned parties at homes listed on its platforms under a temporary policy first introduced during the pandemic.

Since then, reports of parties at Airbnb properties in Ireland have fallen by 49 per cent.

In August 2020, the platform banned all parties and events on Airbnb listings around the world to comply with Covid restrictions.

The move, which the platform said was “in the best interest of public health,” came as people rented homes for gatherings while nightclubs and restaurants were closed.

Since the ban was introduced, reports of parties at Airbnbs in Ireland have fallen by almost half. This is higher than the 44 percent drop in reports worldwide.

In the UK, the number of parties reported in listed properties has fallen by 63 per cent since the ban.

The platform said the move to make the party ban permanent has become a “fundamental community policy” for hosts and neighbors.

It used to be at the host’s discretion to authorize parties, but in 2019 Airbnb banned open-invite parties, sharing an Airbnb’s location on social media, and places where parties were consistently hosted.

“Today’s announcement makes it clear that Airbnb has no place for disruptive parties,” said Amanda Cupples, general manager for Northern Europe.

“Since its inception, the ban has resulted in a reduction in reported incidents and has helped minimize the impact of noise and pollution issues on communities,” she added.

Airbnb also introduced a 16-person occupancy cap in the summer of 2020 due to concerns surrounding Covid-19, but this is being lifted under the company’s new policies.

Last week, Cupples told the Irish Independent that Airbnb is seeking government reforms here so the platform can ban unregistered property owners from listing on the site.
