Everyone knows that Las Vegas is one of the most popular go-to places for New Year’s Eve. So it stands to reason the party options would be plentiful. But when you’re a tourist without property in the city, your options for throwing a party are limited. You can’t really go crazy in a hotel without alerting the neighbors and staff.
So what is a tourist to do when they want to host a huge party? Well, in years past Airbnb properties have been a very popular option. Not anymore. AirBnb has announced they’re going to throw down some very strict guidelines to prevent unauthorized parties in someone else’s home.
AirBnb is trusted by homeowners to look out for their properties. And coming home to a trashed house because someone didn’t treat your home like their own…well, that sucks. And I imagine it has hurt the company as a whole if they’re losing clients because of it.
To prevent homeowners having to start 2023 off on the wrong foot, AirBnb is going to extend the same guidelines for booking that they have since 2020. The company announced it will ban some one-night bookings for New Year’s Eve, specifically on rentals for entire homes. They will allow those bookings from accounts with a positive rental history. But will not allow it for accounts without positive ratings or with no history at all.
This measure is not just being taken in Las Vegas, but throughout the country with AirBnb. In a statement with 13 Action News, the company stated “We continue to draw a hard line on disruptive parties and emphasize safe and responsible travel during a weekend where we know some may be more inclined to try to throw an unauthorized party.”
AirBnb estimates that, since 2020, they have helped lower the rate of party incidents around the globe by 56 percent with these guidelines. Thanks, AirBnb! We appreciate you looking out for our home owners in Las Vegas!
