Airbnb is extending its charge-free cancelation policy due to the coronavirus. This means that Airbnb customers who booked accommodations in specific areas will be able to cancel their stay without having to pay any monetary value.
The list of areas includes Mainland China, South Korea, Italy, and the United States. Additionally, the accommodation would have to have been booked before March 13 in order to be eligible.
Airbnb extending its cancelation policy will ensure that people don’t pay unnecessary fees, and it will help alleviate the financial burden that some will experience due to the virus. Consumers will also remember which brands were helpful during the pandemic and taking this kind of action could cause more people to connect with the brand in the coming months.
