In advance of the 4th of July holiday weekend and with social distancing mandates in full effect in Las Vegas, Airbnb announced a major initiative to combat unauthorized parties.
Specifically, they are restricting booking guests under the age of 25 without a track record of positive reviews from booking local, entire home listings anywhere in the United States.
For example, an 18-year-old who lives in Las Vegas and has never had a review on Airbnb would be prevented by their technologies from booking a large home for one night in Las Vegas.
All guests under the age of 25 are still free to book private rooms and hotel rooms through Airbnb, regardless of where they live.
Younger guests with at least three positive reviews and no negative reviews on Airbnb are not subject to this restriction, and they’re welcome to continue to book entire home listings in their local area.
