Additional Terms for Experience Hosts
IF YOU RESIDE IN THE UNITED STATES, PLEASE NOTE: THE ARBITRATION CLAUSE AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER CONTAINED IN SECTION 19 OF THE AIRBNB TERMS OF SERVICE APPLIES TO ANY DISPUTE RELATING TO THESE ADDITIONAL TERMS FOR EXPERIENCE HOSTS OR TO YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES.
Last Updated: April 16, 2018
You agree to these Additional Terms for Experience Hosts (“Experience Host Terms”) when you submit a Listing for an Experience, Event or other Host Service (excluding a Listing for an Accommodation).
These terms are in addition to the Airbnb Terms of Service and the Airbnb Payments Terms of Service, and except as explicitly stated, the Airbnb Terms of Service and the Airbnb Payments Terms of Service apply in full to all Experience Hosts, Experience Host Listings, and Experiences, Events, or other Host Services. All capitalised terms not defined here have the meaning given to them in the Airbnb Terms of Service. Nothing in these Experience Host Terms shall be construed to amend or contradict the Airbnb Terms of Service unless explicitly stated. If there is a conflict between the Airbnb Terms of Service and the Experience Host Terms, these Experience Host Terms control.
Additional Terms for Listing Experiences, Events and other Host Services
To list an Experience, Event or other Host Service, you must create a Listing and submit the Experience, Event or Host Service to Airbnb. Experiences, Events or other Host Services must at all times meet the quality standards for Experiences. Airbnb reserves the right to decide, in its sole discretion, whether a submitted Experience, Event or other Host Service will be published on the Airbnb Platform. Once published, an Experience, Event or other Host Service may be removed pursuant to the removal provisions below or pursuant to any applicable removal provision in the Airbnb Terms of Service.
When listing an Experience, Event or other Host Service you must, where applicable, fully educate and inform Guests about (i) any risks inherent to the Experience, Event or other Host Service, (ii) any requirements for participation, such as the minimum age, related skills, level of fitness or other requirements, and (iii) anything else they may need to know to safely participate in the Experience, Event or other Host Service (including dress codes, equipment, special certifications or licenses, etc.).
Once your Experience, Event or other Host Service is published on the Airbnb platform, you will have the ability to add dates and times when you offer your Experience through the Airbnb Platform. By making your Experience, Event or other Host Service available for a particular date and time on the Airbnb Platform (an “Instance”), you agree that only people who book through Airbnb can attend that Instance of the Experience, Event or other Host Service. You further agree that you will not allow people to attend any Instance of your Experience, Event or other Host Service available on the Airbnb Platform unless that person booked through Airbnb (or was added as an additional Guest for a spot booked through the Airbnb Platform).
If you wish to list an Experience, Event or other Host Service on behalf of a Nonprofit (“Social Impact Experience”), you must comply with the eligibility requirements for hosting a Social Impact Experience. When listing a Social Impact Experience you (i) represent and warrant that you are duly authorized to act on behalf of your Nonprofit and (ii) acknowledge and agree that all payouts will be directed to an account owned by your Nonprofit. You and your Nonprofit acknowledge that listing a Social Impact Experience does not create a commercial fundraising or co-venturer, or charitable trust relationship with Airbnb and Airbnb is not a professional fundraiser or commercial participator. Nonprofits, and not Airbnb, are responsible for determining what, if any, portion of their Listing Fee is a charitable contribution and for providing Guests charitable tax receipts for any applicable charitable contributions. You and your Nonprofit are solely responsible for complying with all laws that apply to your organization and your Social Impact Experience.
Hosts alone are responsible for the Experiences, Events, or other Host Services that they submit, list and provide. Airbnb merely provides the Airbnb Services and is not itself an operator or provider of tours, activities, travel services, Experiences, Events or other Host Services. Airbnb does not own, sell, resell, furnish, provide, manage and/or control any such Experiences, Events or other Host Services. Airbnb’s responsibilities are limited to making the Listings for Experiences, Events or other Host Services available through the Airbnb Platform.
You are responsible for acquiring all equipment, including supplies, vehicles, venues and other materials (“Equipment”) necessary to host your Experience, Event or other Host Service. You are solely responsible for ensuring that the Equipment used in your Experience, Event or other Host Service is in good working order and conforms to all laws pertaining to safety, equipment, inspection, and operational capability. Except as otherwise required by law, you assume all risk of damage or loss to your Equipment.
Additional Experience Host Responsibilities
You are responsible for (i) understanding and complying with all laws, rules and regulations that may apply to your Experience, Event or other Host Service(s), (ii) obtaining any required licenses, permits, or registrations prior to providing your Experience, Event or other Host Service(s); and (iii) ensuring that your Listing and/or Hosting of an Experience, Event, or other Host Service(s) will not breach any agreement you may have with any third party. You can find additional information about some of the legal obligations that may apply to you on our Responsible Hosting pages.
You must provide your Experience, Event or other Host Service in person and may not allow any third party to provide the Experience, Event or other Host Service on your behalf, unless authorized by Airbnb. Section 7.4 of the Airbnb Terms of Service provides additional terms regarding co-hosting.
If any provision or part of a provision in these terms is held to be invalid, void, or unenforceable, such provision (or the part of it that is making it invalid, void or unenforceable) will be struck and not affect the validity of and enforceability of the remaining provisions.
Updates to these Experience Host Terms
We reserve the right to update, modify or discontinue the Experience Host Terms, at any time. If we modify the Experience Host Terms, we will give you notice and post the modification on the Airbnb Site, Application, or Services. By continuing to access or use the Services after the modified Experience Host Terms becomes effective, you are indicating that you agree to be bound by the updated terms. If the modified terms are not acceptable to you, your recourse is to stop using the Services.
Unless you reside in Germany, if you or we terminate the Experience Host Terms, the clauses of these Experience Host Terms that reasonably should survive termination of the Experience Host Terms will remain in effect. When the Experience Host Terms are terminated, you are not entitled to a restoration of your account (if your account is cancelled) or of the Member Content.
