Airbnb limits the ability of people under the age of 25 in the UK, France and Spain to rent entire homes through its platform to reduce unauthorized persons and ensure safety.
Airbnb began failing last year as lewd parties created problems for neighbors in certain communities, and the coronavirus pandemic was even more concerned about events that omitted social distancing measures.
Airbnb said it would now begin testing in the UK, France and Spain a ban on children under the age of 25 with less than three positive ratings to rent entire homes near where they live.
Those who have at least three positive reviews and no negative reviews for Airbnb or with long-term plans are not subject to the restriction and all users can book private rooms and hotel rooms through the platform.
“The restriction aims to protect local communities while still allowing younger guests to book lists outside their local area,” an Airbnb statement said.
Testing of similar measures follows in the United States and Canada, and the company said it has also tightened its collection ban, which violates public health mandates in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
“Airbnb is committed to being a good partner to communities, and today’s announcement follows a series of measures taken by the platform to tackle antisocial behavior and unauthorized parties,” the company said.
