Air BnB has heightened rules and technologies aimed at helping to stop unauthorised parties over New Year’s Eve in 11 countries, following a successful trial last year.
The restrictions will affect certain types of bookings over New Year’s Eve. There will be a ban on one-night bookings of entire home listings for guests without a positive account history – or no previous bookings at all – on the platform. We’re also introducing tighter restrictions for those same guests who try to book two- and three-night reservations, with an emphasis on attempts to book locally.
The restrictions will be in effect over the New Year’s Eve weekend in 11 countries, including the US (including Puerto Rico), Canada, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand, France, Spain, the UK, and – new for 2022 – Ireland, Portugal and the Netherlands.
