Airbnb makes global party ban permanent and says it’s working

SAN FRANCISCO — Airbnb is permanently banning parties at homes listed on its short-term rentals site.

The San Francisco-based company believes the ban has worked, and said Tuesday reports of parties at listed properties were down 44% from a year earlier.

According to Airbnb, more than 6,600 guests were suspended for related violations last year.

Airbnb began cracking down on parties in 2019 after a deadly shooting at a party at a home in California. At the time, the company banned promotional parties at Airbnb locations on social media.

The number of parties at Airbnb locations increased during the pandemic, Airbnb said, as people moved gatherings from bars and clubs to rented houses. That led to a temporary ban in 2020.

While the ban is being made permanent, Airbnb said it would lift a limit of 16 people in rented properties. It said the cap was triggered by health concerns before vaccines for COVID-19 were available.
