Airbnb announced on Tuesday that it is permanently banning parties globally.

“At Airbnb, we believe the neighborhoods and communities in which we operate are as important as the Hosts and guests who use our service,” the company’s official statement read. “We know that the overwhelming majority of our Hosts share their homes responsibly, just as the overwhelming majority of guests are responsible and treat their listings and neighborhoods as if they were their own.”

In 2020, the company announced a temporary ban on all parties and events in listings globally, which saw success in curbing guests from throwing unauthorized parties or chronic party houses that impact neighbors. The permanent ban will mean that you can no longer use Airbnb to host “disruptive parties and events,” including open-invite gathers or having “party houses,” in which people stay to throw a large event just for one night. Airbnb had also put a cap on 16 people in bigger houses, which can be lifted based on the host’s preferences in the coming months. Airbnb claimed that if anyone is caught breaking the policy will face a suspension or ban. Furthermore, the company noted that it has removed well over 6,600 users over the past year for violations.

Airbnb has also set up an anti-party safety line and a partnership with Vrbo to share information on repeated “party house” offenders in the US.

Elsewhere in trave, Bored & Hungry restaurant has stopped accepting cryptocurrency.
