Airbnb makes reimbursement easier for travelers and hosts

We strive to support both parties and are implementing several actions ”. Airbnb is now waiving the 3% service charge for those who agree to reimburse travelers an amount greater than Airbnb rules. Customers who must cancel a reservation made after March 10 and until June 1, and who cannot benefit from a reimbursement of service fees, will be able to benefit from a travel coupon which can be used at a future stay.

In areas severely affected by coronavirus, full reimbursement may be available in the event of "extenuating circumstances". Despite the refund policy chosen by the host, it will be possible to recover 100% of the amount. Brian Chesky, CEO of Airbnb said "We don't want the customer to feel compelled to travel because they can't get their money back". This health crisis will heavily affect the San Francisco firm and certainly delay its IPO, scheduled for this year.
