Canada Gift Card Terms and Conditions
These Gift Card Terms and Conditions for Canada Users apply to you if your country of residence or establishment is within Canada. If your country of residence or establishment is outside of Canada, find the gift card terms that apply to you.
Last updated on August 15, 2022
These Gift Card Terms and Conditions (“Gift Card Terms”) govern your use of Airbnb Gift Cards ("Gift Cards") on the Airbnb Platform. Your use of Gift Cards and the services available via the Airbnb Platform shall be subject to Airbnb’s Terms of Service (“Terms”); if you see an undefined term in these Gift Card Terms, it has the same definition as in the Terms.
Claiming and Redemption.
You must have an Airbnb account in order to claim and redeem a Gift Card; you can claim a Gift Card by visiting airbnb.ca/gift (English) or fr.airbnb.ca/cadeau (French). Upon claiming, the entire Gift Card value will be shown on your Airbnb account as your Gift Card balance. Gift Card balances may only be redeemed toward the purchase of eligible goods and services provided via Airbnb Ireland UC and its affiliates via the Airbnb Platform. Any booking made with a Gift Card will be deducted from your Gift Card balance, and any unused Gift Card balance will remain on your Airbnb account until used. If a purchase exceeds your existing Gift Card balance, the remaining amount due must be paid with another Payment Method. You can view your Gift Card balance by signing in to your Airbnb account.
No fees of any kind apply to Gift Cards, and Gift Cards and Gift Card balances do not expire. These Gift Card Terms remain applicable until your entire Gift Card balance has been spent.
In Canada, Gift Cards can only be purchased by or gifted to individuals in Canada.
Gift Cards may not be applied towards charges for changes to existing reservations or be used to purchase other Gift Cards. Gift Cards cannot be reloaded, resold, transferred for value or redeemed for cash, except to the extent required by law. Once a Gift Card is claimed to an Airbnb account, its value cannot be transferred to another person or Airbnb account; a Gift Card balance on an Airbnb account may not be cashed out or transferred to another Airbnb account.
Risk of Loss.
You should treat Gift Cards like cash. Once we electronically transmit a digital Gift Card to the purchaser or designated recipient, or deliver a physical Gift Card to the carrier, whichever is applicable, the risk of loss and title for Gift Cards pass to the purchaser. We are not responsible if any Gift Card is lost, stolen, destroyed, or used without your permission.
Airbnb reserves the right to any remedy, including refusal to issue or honor a Gift Card, in the event of suspected fraud. We will have the right to close a Member’s account and charge alternative Payment Methods if a fraudulently obtained Gift Card is redeemed and/or used to make purchases on the Airbnb Platform.
Limitation of Liability.
(If you are a resident of the Province of Quebec, the following Limitation of Liability provision does not apply.)
To the maximum extent permitted by law, we make no warranties, express or implied, with respect to Gift Cards, including without limitation, any express or implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. To the maximum extent permitted by law, in the event a Gift Card is non-functional, your sole remedy, and our sole liability, will be the replacement of such Gift Card. Certain laws do not allow limitations on implied warranties or the exclusion or limitation of certain damages. If these laws apply to you, some or all of the above disclaimers, exclusions, or limitations may not apply to you, and you may have additional rights.
Any dispute or claim relating in any way to Gift Cards will be resolved in accordance with the Governing Law and Dispute Resolution section of the Terms.

THIS PROVISION APPLIES ONLY IF YOU RESIDE IN THE PROVINCE OF QUEBEC: If you are a consumer residing in Quebec, these Gift Card Terms are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the province of Quebec and the federal laws of Canada applicable therein and your purchase, receipt, and/or redemption of a Gift Card is subject to the laws of the province of Quebec and the federal laws of Canada applicable therein.

Airbnb may modify these Gift Card Terms at any time. When we make material changes to these Gift Card Terms, we will post the revised Gift Card Terms on the Airbnb Platform and update the “Last Updated” date at the top of these Gift Card Terms. We will also provide you with notice of any material changes by email at least 30 days before the date they become effective, and will inform you about your right to terminate your Terms of Service agreement with Airbnb. Unless you terminate your agreement with Airbnb before the date the revised Gift Card Terms become effective, your continued access to or use of the Airbnb Platform will constitute acceptance of the revised Gift Card Terms. All terms and conditions are applicable to the extent permitted by law.
Changes made to these Gift Card Terms may be in respect of: (i) the claiming and redemption of Gift Cards; (ii) limitations of use of Gift Cards; (iii) risk of loss or fraud; (iv) limitation of liability; (v) resolution of, or any claim related to, disputes; or (vi) the general terms including modifications, governing law and jurisdiction, and definitions.
