When and where will Airbnb Experiences reopen?
Based on the guidance of governments and public health experts, in-person Airbnb Experiences are paused in many countries.
We believe that taking this action in the short-term is necessary to do our part to slow the spread of COVID-19, and in the long-term preserve experiences as a trusted way to connect with others throughout the world.
Guest refund and coupon
All reservations that were canceled because of the Airbnb Experiences pause were automatically refunded in full. Guests also received a $25 coupon to join a future experience. Read more about guest cancellations here.
Timelines for reopening
On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the outbreak of COVID-19 to be a global pandemic. To protect the health and safety of our community, in-person experiences were paused worldwide on March 18, 2020.
Taking a country by country approach, we started reopening experiences in May 2020.
Planning for future experiences
In countries where in-person experiences remain paused, guests can book any available experience on a host’s calendar after August 27, 2020. We are continuing to monitor the situation globally, and will update the community if the situation changes.
