Today on June 1, Airbnb announced another extension to the COVID-19 extenuating circumstances policy. Reservations booked before March 14 with check-in dates through July 15 are now covered.
Now if guests can’t travel because of COVID-19 they can cancel with full cash or travel credit refund reservations with check-ins on or before July 15, 2020 that were booked before March 14, 2020. Hosts will not be eligible for any payment under Airbnb $250m support initiative.
March 15, 2020👈🏻Trip booked before
July 1-15, 2020✅
July 15, 2020👈🏻Check-in is before
Guests will be presented with four options for why they are cancelling:
- Government restrictions prohibit me from leaving my location or going to destination
- I am sick and my healthcare provider instructed me not to travel
- My means of transportation have been cancelled or closed, making it impossible to travel
- I am a healthcare professional required to work and can't travel
