Short-term rental platform Airbnb announced a global ban on parties on Tuesday. 

The company is permanently banning “disruptive parties and events,” which include open-invite gatherings. “Party houses,” which people book to throw a large event for just one night, will stay banned as well.

Airbnb began to crack down on parties in 2019 and in 2020 the company moved to temporarily ban house parties in its properties worldwide in a bid to comply with limits on gatherings imposed because of the coronavirus outbreak.

In 2021, more than 6,600 guests were suspended from Airbnb for violating its party ban.

Airbnb said that guests who attempt to violate its rules will face consequences varying from account suspension to full removal from the platform.
