Airbnb CEO: Travel won’t ever go back to what it was pre-pandemic
Brian Chesky tells ‘The Claman Countdown’ why he is projecting a big recovery for the industry
Vacation rental platform Airbnb will enforce its ban on one-night home rentals during Halloween weekend this year in an effort to contain the spread of COVID-19.
The platform implemented the same ban on Halloween in 2020 and enforced similar measures on New Year's Eve and July 4 of this year with the exception of users with excellent reviews, according to a Tuesday blog post.

"We estimate that our efforts resulted in a drop in incidents such as unauthorized parties by over 49[%] for Halloween and over 51[%] for New Year’s Eve," Airbnb said in the blog post. "As a result, this coming Halloween we’ll again institute restrictions on one- and two-night stays in the U.S. and Canada for entire home listings while also utilizing our other robust party prevention systems."
