How it works

Airbnb hosts can respond to crises in their community by offering housing to displaced neighbors and relief workers deployed to help.

During an emergency, Airbnb may email local hosts with information about how to help and how to offer their extra space to affected community members. These hosts are still covered by the Host Guarantee, and Airbnb’s fees are waived.

Learn more about how Airbnb partners with government organizations and NGOs to support communities during and after a disaster.

Inspired by the community

Hurricane Sandy hit New York in 2012, and Airbnb hosts immediately began helping in the way they knew best–by providing a home and warm welcome for their neighbors in need.

Inspired by their generosity, Airbnb created the Disaster Response service, to make it easier for community members all over the world to provide emergency accommodations in times of crisis.

Partnerships

Collaborating with regional disaster relief organizations in advance of an event allows us to reach a broader audience and help more people during the actual event. That is why we are pleased to partner with local government agencies and disaster relief organizations to help the Airbnb community and the cities prepare for local emergencies.
