Airbnb Introduces Restrictions in Canada to Prevent New Year’s Eve Parties

Airbnb has said it plans to limit this year’s New Year’s Eve parties to Canada to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

 The announcement came shortly after a short-term rental venue was a party for 60 people in Mississauga, resulting in thousands of dollars in fines for participants violating the COVID-19 restrictions.

In addition to the party ban, the company said guests will need to have a history of positive reviews on their app so that before renting an entire home for New Year’s Eve in Canada as well as in the US, Mexico, Australia, UK, France and Spain.

“We believe this plan will help prevent large gatherings while supporting the type of safe, responsible travel that benefits guests, hosts and the neighbourhoods they call home,” the company said.

Airbnb made an exception for one-night bookings made before Tuesday, based on data showing that rooms booked before early December are rarely used for party purposes.

But Airbnb said it will adopt stricter policies when the new year arrives, using technology that blocks some rooms booked at the last minute.

The Airbnb announcement came after Peel Deputy Chief of Police Marc Andrews said a short-term rental venue was the venue for a party of 60 last weekend, resulting in thousands of fines for those Participants.
