LAS VEGAS (KLAS)– Airbnb announced Wednesday that they will enforce restrictions to deter unauthorized parties across Las Vegas Halloween weekend.

The company says their party ban has become a foundational component of their trust and safety strategy since introducing a variation of this type of holiday initiative for the first time over Halloween 2020. This resulted in a drop in incidents such as unauthorized parties by over 49 percent for Halloween and over 51 percent for New Year’s Eve.

Airbnb says in a statement that they plan on blocking 1-night reservations. “We’re reminding the Las Vegas community of Airbnb’s initiative in place to prevent unauthorized parties over this coming Halloween weekend.1-night reservations in entire home listings will be blocked for guests without a history of positive reviews, among other defenses.”

This doesn’t apply to guests that have a history of positive reviews.
