BARCELONA, 2 (EUROPA PRESS)
Airbnb has launched a new reservation control technology in Spain to prevent unauthorized parties, which should help identify reservations with a high potential risk and prevent irresponsible behavior, it reported in a statement this Friday.
The implementation of the program is carried out after “the good results obtained” in the pilot test carried out, which allowed a reduction in the complaints of unauthorized parties.
The system takes into account factors such as the reviews that the guest has had, the duration of the trip, the distance to the establishment and whether the reservation is made on a weekend or during the week, among other considerations.
Airbnb already completely prohibited unauthorized parties last year, and the new tool is “more robust” than the one that has been in operation since 2020 and has allowed complaints for this cause to be reduced by 50%.
The general director of Airbnb Marketing Services, Mónica Casañas, has explained that the will is to “help the hosts” by taking action against unwanted behavior.
“Airbnb is confident that this system will have a positive impact and contribute to its goal of reducing the risk of security incidents and property damage on Airbnb,” the company explained.
This initiative is added to the neighborhood helpline, among other projects, which allows residents to contact the platform at any time if there are parties or problems.
