Airbnb updates terms for pre-January 25, 2024 users
Evolving business determines new updates
Airbnb has informed users who created their accounts on the short- and long-term homestay platform before January 25, 2024, about mandatory changes (updates) coming into effect after March 28, 2024.
Airbnb is making the changes to support its evolving business, facilitate the rollout of new features, provide additional helpful information about how personal data is processed, and address upcoming laws and regulations.
All users must review and accept the updated Terms of Service. This is essential for them to continue booking stays, receiving future bookings, or utilising their Host tools.
Failure to agree to the updated Terms will prompt Airbnb to provide information on options for completing existing reservations and cancelling accounts.
For those encountering difficulties or having questions throughout this process, assistance can be sought by emailing [email protected]
March 28, 2024 cutoff
If you registered your Airbnb account on or after January 25, 2024, the updated Terms of Service already bind you, Payments Terms of Service, and other relevant policies.
The updated Terms will apply to all activities on the Airbnb platform from when users agree to them.
According to Airbnb, the platform adjusts its fees to align with its customers’ values.
Since some bookings require Airbnb to operate across different currencies starting April 1, 2024, for cross-currency bookings, the guest service fee will include an additional amount of up to 2% of the booking total before taxes. This will be applied when the currency the guest uses to pay differs from the currency that the Host sets for their listing.
