What you need to know about Airbnb

People love to complain about Airbnb. Remarkably, Airbnb responds to most of these complaints by fixing them (though not all of them). Airbnb problems fall into two general categories: Accounts that are banned without explanation and disputes between hosts and guests. We’ve seen an uptick in Airbnb bans lately and, unfortunately, Airbnb is being as tight-lipped as ever about the reasons. This customer was banned from Airbnb after she moved. Airbnb banned this customer because she used to live in Russia. Airbnb charged this customer even after finding cockroaches in a rental. Recently, Airbnb banned a loyal customer for no reason and refused to help him get unbanned.

How to solve a problem with Airbnb

Airbnb’s executives read and respond to consumer complaints, which a big reason why it has a 4 out of 5 rating. Please follow the troubleshooting steps in our guide to a vacation rental before reaching out to the executives.

Note: If you’re having customer service trouble, please use our proven methods for fixing any consumer problem before contacting a manager.
