Please, sign up the petition against the new Airbnb policies
By my side, which I have experienced Airbnb both in place where ‘‘the season is always open’’ like London or other big cities or in other places like my island ( Sardinia ), where the season takes just few months.
For us, in Sardinia, those policies produce big inconveniences. Please, consider that the season starts in May and finishes in October
Usually the reservations arrived at the beginning of the year. From January til April.
Flight and shipping costs are quite high, then it is possible to arrange holidays here just with few months advance
To get last minute bookings is quite impossible. Then,with new policies, hosts here are going to be very damaged, No guarantees at all. That s unacceptable
This activity gives me the chance give wages to gardener and to a girl which helps me with cleaning and guest assistance. I cannot make plan for the season without guarantees.
This have a bad affects on my standard Hosting level
I feel like Airbnb is losing on the road, the ‘’ Sharing philosophy ‘’ which make it popular.
No more compromise between host and guests, which are always free to book properties which soft cancellation policies.
Guests are over protected like with Booking.com
Another thing which is really disappointing is that Airbnb is charging his guests depending on the cancellation policies you choose, like I have a different treatment from other host who prefer or can ‘‘afford’’ lighter
policies. While Booking charges the same independently
