Airbnb is rolling out restrictions in Canada to prevent New Year’s Eve parties.
In addition to its ongoing ban on parties, Airbnb now says guests will need a history of positive reviews on its app to reserve an entire home for New Year’s.
The announcement comes not long after a short-term rental was the site of a 60-person party in Mississauga.
Airbnb is making an exception for one-night bookings made up to Tuesday, based on data that suggest bookings made before early December rarely involve parties.
But Airbnb says it will put more stringent policies in place as the new year nears, by using technology that blocks certain kinds of last-minute bookings.
