What is Airbnb doing to help hosts make their homes safer for guests?
Through awareness and a few simple tools, we'd like to help hosts make their homes safer and put guests more at ease:
We’re encouraging all Airbnb hosts to install working smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in their listings. Please check your local laws for any applicable requirements on where to put the detector(s) in your listing. To help achieve this goal, Airbnb hosts around the world will be able to quickly and easily purchase a combination smoke and carbon monoxide detector through our website through December 31, 2015. Prices will vary depending on where your listing is located, but the average cost is roughly $40. This will be deducted from payouts for future reservations, and the first 25,000 eligible hosts who request a detector through December 31, 2015 will get one for free. Terms, Conditions and Restrictions apply. If you don’t have a detector installed, you can order one today.
While we encourage hosts to install these devices in their listings, we will not at this time require that they confirm that they have installed them. As with all equipment and amenities that apply to your listing, if you don't have these devices installed, we believe you should clearly and accurately tell guests in your listing’s description that your listing does not have a smoke and CO detector. If you do not indicate you have these devices by selecting the “smoke detector” and/or “carbon monoxide detector” amenities in your listing description, guests will see those amenities crossed-out when they view your listing.
