Please note: These Host Damage Protection Terms contain an arbitration agreement and class action waiver that applies to all claims brought against Airbnb in the United States. See Section IX, below. It affects how disputes with Airbnb are resolved. By accepting these Host Damage Protection Terms, you agree to be bound by this arbitration clause and class action waiver. Please read it carefully.
Where Hosts incur Eligible Losses (as defined below), their recourse is to the Responsible Guests (as defined below) in the first instance. Airbnb offers Host Damage Protection as a contractual guarantee from Airbnb for the benefit of Hosts that is triggered only after a Responsible Guest, as primary obligor, defaults on their primary performance obligation to pay Hosts under the Airbnb Terms of Service (“Terms”) for Damage Claims that they are responsible for.
Except as otherwise specifically stated in these Host Damage Protection Terms, Airbnb shall have no liability, in contract or otherwise, to the Host or other persons for damage to Eligible Property (as defined below) arising directly or indirectly from or caused by a Responsible Guest or Invitee (as defined below).
For Hosts who offer Accommodations in the State of Washington, all amounts payable by Airbnb under these Host Damage Protection Terms are secured by an insurance policy purchased by Airbnb. Such Hosts are designated as loss payees under such insurance policy. Airbnb has instructed the relevant insurance company to make direct payment to the relevant Hosts for amounts payable by Airbnb to them pursuant to these Host Damage Protection Terms. This insurance arrangement does not change the contractual responsibilities of any Hosts under these Host Damage Protection Terms, the Terms, or the Payments Terms of Service (“Payments Terms”).
These Host Damage Protection Terms do not apply to Hosts whose country of residence or establishment is within Australia. For such Hosts, the Host Damage Protection Terms for Australian Users apply.
Host Damage Protection does not apply to Hosts who offer Accommodations in Japan or who offered Accommodations in China. For Hosts who offer Accommodations in Japan, Japan Host Insurance will apply to such Hosts, more details of which are available in the program summary. For Hosts who offered stays in China, the China Host Protection Plan applies, more details of which are available here: China Host Protection Plan.
Host Damage Protection also does not apply to hotels and other similar categories of listings that Airbnb may specify from time to time or Hosts who contract with Airbnb Travel, LLC to provide Accommodations.
Please read these Host Damage Protection Terms carefully as they contain important information about your legal rights, remedies and obligations. By posting a Listing or otherwise using the Airbnb Platform as a Host, you agree to comply with and be bound by these Host Damage Protection Terms.

IV. Conditions to Host Damage Protection
In order to be eligible to obtain payment under these Host Damage Protection Terms, you must fully comply with each of the following conditions. Your failure to fully comply will prevent your recovery of any Eligible Losses. In all cases, the onus will be upon you to demonstrate that you have complied with the following conditions.
You must have incurred Eligible Losses.
You must notify Airbnb as well as the Responsible Guest about your complaint and attempt to resolve the loss or damage with the Responsible Guest within fourteen (14) days of the Responsible Guest’s check-out date. You may fulfill this obligation by submitting a reimbursement request for the loss or damage to the Responsible Guest via the Airbnb Resolution Center within fourteen (14) days of the Responsible Guest’s check-out date. In the event the Responsible Guest fails to pay the amount requested for the loss or damage to your Eligible Property pursuant to the Responsible Guest’s obligations under the Terms, you may make a reimbursement request to Airbnb under Host Damage Protection by submitting a Host Damage Protection Payment Request Form.
You must not have misrepresented any facts or committed fraud or any other dishonest or deceptive act in connection with the booking of the Eligible Accommodation or the preparation or submission of any past or present payment request under these Host Damage Protection Terms. Any such misrepresentation, fraud, dishonest or deceptive act by you, at any time, will result in denial of all pending payment requests under these Host Damage Protection Terms and immediate termination of these Host Damage Protection Terms as they relate to you, notwithstanding Section VI below.
Within thirty (30) days after you have incurred an Eligible Loss you must (i) complete and file a Host Damage Protection Payment Request Form and (ii) provide us with documents and information supporting the existence, extent, and amount of the Eligible Loss that includes the following:
- The time, cause and origin of the Eligible Loss, and evidence and proof of such loss in the form of receipts, photographs, videos, documents and other verifiable forms of proof.
- A complete inventory of the lost, destroyed or damaged Eligible Property with descriptions of the make and model, including the date you purchased or acquired the item, the condition at the time of the loss or damage, and the estimated cost to repair or replace along with receipts or related documents that justify the figures in the inventory.
- Detailed repair estimates in the case of physical damage or loss to Eligible Property consisting of real property.
- Receipts, bills, or invoices for additional, reasonable, customary and unexpected cleaning costs incurred to clean Eligible Property as described in subsections (iii) through (vii) under the definition of Eligible Losses.
- The total amount of the Eligible Loss that is the subject of the payment request.
- All information that Airbnb reasonably requests to determine the amount of the loss with respect to Eligible Property.
You must also:
- Provide Airbnb with proof of ownership of, or legal responsibility for, the Eligible Property in the form of receipts, photographs, videos, documents or other customary forms of proof (including, but not limited to, appraisal or valuation forms or notices addressed to you) certified by you as true and correct and reasonably acceptable to Airbnb.
- In case of loss or damage to Eligible Property due to violation of law or criminal act or theft or misdemeanor and for which you are filing a Host Damage Protection Payment Request Form, file a police report listing such Eligible Property and provide Airbnb with a copy of such report, certified by you as true and correct.
- Protect and preserve damaged Eligible Property from further loss or damage.
- As often as may be reasonably requested by Airbnb or its designees (i) exhibit all that remains of any damaged Eligible Property and sign the written records of examination; (ii) produce for examination all books of accounts, business records, bills, invoices, and vouchers (either originals or certified copies if originals are lost) and (iii) permit extracts and machine copies to be made of the above.
- Permit Airbnb or its designee(s) to make inspections of the Eligible Property at all reasonable times. However, the right to make inspections, the making of inspections, and any analysis, advice, or inspection report will not constitute an undertaking by Airbnb or Airbnb’s insurer (where applicable) to determine or warrant that damaged Eligible Property is safe or healthful. We will have no liability to you or any other person because of any inspection or failure to inspect.
- Cooperate with Airbnb, including signing any documents, and timely responding to any reasonable requests for additional information or documentation that Airbnb or its designees may require or request to process the applicable Host Damage Protection Payment Request Form.
Airbnb and/or its insurer (where applicable) reserve the right but not the obligation to independently investigate (or to have independently investigated) at our sole discretion and expense, the facts and circumstances of a payment request set forth in any Host Damage Protection Payment Request Form that you file with Airbnb, notwithstanding your delivery of all information and documentation that you are required to provide Airbnb in order to comply with the conditions set forth in this Section IV.
You will have full rights to the possession and control of damaged Eligible Property if proper testing is done to show which property is physically damaged. You, using reasonable judgment, will decide if the physically damaged Eligible Property can be reprocessed or sold. If you determine that the Eligible Property is unfit for reprocessing or sale, the property will not be sold or disposed of except by you or with your consent. Proceeds from the sale or other disposition of such Eligible Property will go to (i) Airbnb’s insurer (if applicable) at the time of the Eligible Loss settlement, or (ii) you if such sale or disposition proceeds are received prior to Eligible Loss settlement and such proceeds will reduce the amount of the Eligible Loss payable to you.
These Host Damage Protection Terms constitute a guarantee agreement and as such, the principle of exoneration applies. Thus, if the Eligible Property in question or the risk associated with that Eligible Property changes materially, Airbnb will be entitled to exoneration with respect to any potential guarantee obligation under these Host Damage Protection Terms.
V. Disposition of Host Payment Requests
Host Damage Protection Payment Request Form
Airbnb will complete its processing of any Host Damage Protection Payment Request Form that you file within a reasonable period following the date you have (a) completed and filed a Host Damage Protection Payment Request Form, and (b) provided Airbnb with all information and documentation that you are required to provide to comply with the conditions set forth in Section IV Conditions to Host Damage Protection above. In any event, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to complete processing of your Host Damage Protection Payment Request Form within three (3) months after our receipt of such information and documentation. If you receive an Approved Payment Request (as defined below), then as a condition to payment to you under Host Damage Protection, you will be required to execute and deliver to Airbnb the “Host Damage Protection Approved Payment Request Agreement”, which includes your agreement:
- to assign to Airbnb or its insurer (if applicable) any rights and remedies you may have to recover amounts paid to you with respect to an Approved Payment Request (defined below) from the Responsible Guest, an Invitee, or from any other party that is contractually or legally responsible for the Eligible Losses which are the subject of the Approved Payment Request;
- to reasonably cooperate with us, including, at our request, appearing as a witness in any court, arbitration or like proceeding, if we seek to recover the amount paid to you with respect to the Approved Payment Request from the Responsible Guest, an Invitee, or any other party;
- to release and hold harmless Airbnb and its insurer (if applicable) and all officers, directors, employees, contractors and agents of Airbnb from any further liability or obligations with respect to the facts and circumstances of the matters and incident set forth in the Host Damage Protection Payment Request Form;
- if requested, to treat as “confidential information” the amount of any payment made under Host Damage Protection; and
- to refund to us any amounts paid in excess of the Eligible Loss in the Approved Payment Request as a result of a systems or payment processing error.
The duration of the processing period of any Host Damage Protection Payment Request Form that you file will depend on factors that include, but are not limited to: (i) the amount of payment that you are requesting for the Eligible Loss; (ii) the location of the Eligible Accommodation; (iii) the nature of the Eligible Property and the nature of the Eligible Losses; (iv) the completeness and type of information and documentation that you provide Airbnb regarding the Eligible Losses; and (v) the number of Host Damage Protection Payment Request Forms that are currently being processed for other Hosts.
Approved Payment Request
If you have filed a Host Damage Protection Payment Request Form and such a payment request is approved in whole or in part for an Eligible Loss (any such approved payment request, an “Approved Payment Request”), you will be paid the amount of the Eligible Loss as calculated by Airbnb or its designees. The process for such calculation of Eligible Losses is described under “Determination of the Amount of the Eligible Loss” below. You will be notified by Airbnb and, as a condition of payment hereunder, you will be required to deliver to Airbnb an executed Host Damage Protection Approved Payment Request Agreement. Airbnb or its designees may use third party service providers to assist in the processing of Host Damage Protection Payment Request Forms and the investigation and evaluation of payment requests relating thereto.
For an Approved Payment Request that involves Eligible Losses to Eligible Property that is owned by a party other than you, we reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to pay all or a portion of the amount covered in such Approved Payment Request either to you or directly to the owner of such Eligible Property. If a Host Damage Protection payment for all or a portion of such amount is made directly to the owner of such Eligible Property, then you agree that such payment will be treated for purpose of the Approved Payment Request as being paid to you directly, and that you will be solely responsible for collecting from the owner of such Eligible Property any portion of such payment to which you believe you are legally entitled. For clarity, your indemnification obligations set forth below under the paragraph entitled “Host’s Indemnification Obligations” will apply to claims arising from any payments made pursuant to Host Damage Protection, including without limitation any payments made directly to the owner of any Eligible Property.
Determination of the Amount of the Eligible Loss
The amount of Eligible Losses will be computed as of the date of loss, at the location of the loss, and for not more than your interest, subject to the following:
- On exposed films, records, manuscripts, drawings, and Electronic Media, the value blank plus the cost of copying information from back-up or from originals of a previous generation. Costs of research, engineering, or restoring or recreating lost information or Electronic Data will not be paid.
- On Fine Arts and Valuables, the lesser of (i) the reasonable and necessary cost to repair or restore such property to the physical condition that existed on the date of loss; (ii) the cost to replace the property; or (iii) the current Appraised Value.
- For Eligible Motor Vehicles and Eligible Watercraft, the lesser of (i) the reasonable and necessary cost to repair or restore such Eligible Motor Vehicle or Eligible Watercraft to the physical condition that existed on the date of loss; or (ii) the Actual Cash Value.
- For all Eligible Property (other than that described in paragraphs 1, 2, and 3 above), the loss amount will be the lesser of (i) the Actual Cash Value; (ii) the cost to repair such damaged Eligible Property; (iii) the cost to rebuild or replace such Eligible Property on the same site with new materials of like size, kind, and quality; (iv) the cost to rebuild, repair, or replace on the same or another site, but not to exceed the size and operating capacity that existed on the date of the Eligible Loss; or (v) the cost to replace unrepairable electrical or mechanical equipment, including computer equipment and Electronic Media, with equipment that is the most functionally equivalent to that damaged or destroyed, even if such equipment has technological advantages and/or represents an improvement in function and/or forms part of a program of system enhancement.
- Any amount of any Eligible Losses payable under Host Damage Protection will be reduced by the amount already paid to you or for your benefit for the same Eligible Losses from a source other than Host Damage Protection, including without limitation: (i) amounts received under an insurance policy, guarantee or indemnity; (ii) a security deposit; or (iii) payment directly by the Responsible Guest or an Invitee, or other party or an insurer or guarantor of such party, the intent being that Airbnb shall provide this contractual guarantee under these Host Damage Protection Terms only if you incur an Eligible Loss not otherwise recovered elsewhere.
- Eligible Losses will be paid in the currency of the United States of America unless, in Airbnb’s sole discretion, Airbnb elects to pay losses in a different currency. If currency conversions are required, we use a system-wide rate, known as the base exchange rate, for currency conversion using data from one or more third parties, such as OANDA (www.oanda.com).
- Any amount of any Eligible Losses payable under Host Damage Protection will not exceed the amount which would otherwise be recoverable by you, as a Host, from the Responsible Guest and/or Invitee under the Terms.
Host Damage Protection is not an insurance policy. To the extent you desire protection beyond Host Damage Protection, Airbnb strongly encourages you to purchase insurance that will cover you and your property for losses caused by Guests or Guests’ invitees in the event your loss is not an Eligible Loss within these Host Damage Protection Terms.
VI. Modification or Termination of Host Damage Protection Terms
To the extent permissible by applicable law in your jurisdiction, Airbnb reserves the right to modify or terminate these Host Damage Protection Terms, at any time, in its sole discretion.
If Airbnb terminates these Host Damage Protection Terms, Airbnb will provide you with notice by email at least thirty (30) days before such termination and Airbnb will continue to process all Host Damage Protection Payment Request Forms that you filed prior to the effective date of termination, but your right to file any new Host Damage Protection Payment Request Forms will immediately terminate.
If Airbnb modifies these Host Damage Protection Terms, we will post the modification on the Airbnb Platform here. Airbnb will continue to process all Host Damage Protection Payment Request Forms that you filed prior to the effective date of the modification.
In addition to and without limiting Airbnb’s rights set forth above in the immediately preceding paragraph, Airbnb reserves the right to modify or terminate these Host Damage Protection Terms generally or in any jurisdiction, at any time, in its sole discretion, if: (i) these Host Damage Protection Terms are construed to be an offer to insure or constitute insurance or an insurance contract or insurance service agreement by any governmental or regulatory authority in any jurisdiction; (ii) Airbnb is required to obtain an authorization, license or permit of any kind to continue to provide these Host Damage Protection Terms in any jurisdiction; or (iii) Airbnb determines or a court or arbitrator holds that the provisions of these Host Damage Protection Terms violate applicable law. If Airbnb modifies or terminates these Host Damage Protection Terms in accordance with the foregoing, Airbnb will process all Host Damage Protection Payment Request Forms that you file prior to or as of the effective date of such modification or termination unless such processing is prohibited by law, regulation, ordinance, order, or decree of any governmental or other authority.
The current version of the Host Damage Protection Terms will be made available through the Airbnb website and application. The relevant version is the one prevailing at the date on which Airbnb receives the Host Damage Protection Payment Request Form.
Airbnb and/or Airbnb’s insurer (if applicable) have the right to subrogate against any person or entity whatsoever who allegedly is responsible for causing the losses or damages to the Eligible Property in question, which may include any and all rights you, as a Host, may have against the Responsible Guest, an Invitee or any other third party under the Terms. Further, you hereby agree that, with respect to any payments made under Host Damage Protection by, or on behalf of, Airbnb, you will assist in and cooperate fully with Airbnb regarding any and all efforts at subrogation.

You acknowledge and agree that, to the maximum extent permitted by law, the entire risk arising out of your access to and use of the Airbnb Platform, and your listing of any Accommodations via the Airbnb Platform remains with you. Neither Airbnb nor any other party involved in creating, producing, or delivering the Airbnb Platform will be liable for any incidental, special, exemplary or consequential damages, including lost profits, loss of data or loss of goodwill, service interruption, computer damage or system failure, or for any damages for (1) personal or bodily injury or emotional distress arising out of or in connection with these Host Damage Protection Terms, (2) from the use of or inability to use the Airbnb Platform, (3) from any communications, interactions or meetings with other users of the Airbnb Platform or other persons with whom you communicate or interact as a result of your use of the Airbnb Platform, or (4) from your listing of any Accommodation via the Airbnb Platform. Airbnb will not be liable for any such damages described above, whether based on warranty, contract, tort (including negligence), product liability or any other legal theory, and whether or not Airbnb has been informed of the possibility of such damage, even if a limited remedy set forth herein is found to have failed of its essential purpose.
Except for Airbnb’s obligation to pay amounts to you pursuant to an Approved Payment Request under these Host Damage Protection Terms, in no event will Airbnb’s aggregate liability arising out of or in connection with (a) these Host Damage Protection Terms; (b) your use of or inability to use the Airbnb Platform including, but not limited to, posting a Listing, (c) any Accommodation and (d) your interactions with any other Members, exceed the amounts paid by Airbnb to you in the twelve (12) month period prior to the event giving rise to the liability, or one hundred dollars ($100), if no such payments have been made, as applicable. The limitations of damages set forth above are fundamental elements of the basis of the bargain between Airbnb and you. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion for certain limitations of liability, so the above limitations may not apply to you. If you reside outside of the U.S., this does not affect Airbnb’s liability for death or personal injury arising from its negligence, nor for fraudulent misrepresentation, misrepresentation as to a fundamental matter or any other liability which cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law.
If you reside in the EU, Airbnb is liable under statutory provisions for intent and gross negligence by us, our legal representatives, directors or other vicarious agents. The same applies to the assumption of guarantees or any other strict liability, or in case of a culpable injury to life, limb or health. Airbnb is liable for any negligent breaches of essential contractual obligations by us, our legal representatives, directors or other vicarious agents. Essential contractual obligations are such duties of Airbnb in whose proper fulfillment you regularly trust and must trust for the proper execution of the contract but the amount shall be limited to the typically occurring foreseeable damage. Any additional liability of Airbnb is excluded.
IX. Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Agreement
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPHS CAREFULLY BECAUSE THEY PROVIDE THAT YOU AND AIRBNB AGREE TO RESOLVE ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN US THROUGH BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AND INCLUDE A CLASS ACTION WAIVER AND JURY TRIAL WAIVER. This Arbitration Agreement supersedes all prior versions.
- Application. This Arbitration Agreement only applies to you if your country of residence or establishment is the United States. If your country of residence or establishment is not the United States, and you nevertheless attempt to bring any legal claim against Airbnb in the United States, this Arbitration Agreement will apply for determination of the threshold issue of whether this Section IX applies to you, and all other threshold determinations, including residency, arbitrability, venue, and applicable law.
- Overview of Dispute Resolution Process. Airbnb is committed to participating in a consumer-friendly dispute resolution process. To that end, these Host Damage Protection Terms provide for a two-part process for individuals to whom this Section IX applies: (1) an informal negotiation directly with Airbnb’s customer service team (described in Section IX.3 below), and if necessary (2) a binding arbitration in accordance with the terms of this Arbitration Agreement. You and Airbnb each retain the right to seek relief in small claims court as an alternative to arbitration.
- Mandatory Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution and Notification. At least 30 days prior to initiating an arbitration, you and Airbnb each agree to send the other party an individualized notice of the dispute in writing (“Pre-Dispute Notice”) and attempt in good faith to negotiate an informal resolution of the individual claim. You must send your Pre-Dispute Notice to Airbnb by mailing it to Airbnb’s agent for service: CSC Lawyers Incorporating Service, 2710 Gateway Oaks Drive, Suite 150N, Sacramento, California 95833. Airbnb will send its Pre-Dispute Notice to the email address associated with your Airbnb account. A Pre-Dispute Notice must include: the date, your name, mailing address, your Airbnb username, the email address used to set up your Airbnb account, your signature, a brief description of the dispute, and the relief sought. If the parties are unable to resolve the dispute within the 30-day period, only then may either party commence arbitration by filing a written demand for arbitration with the arbitration provider designated pursuant to Section IX.6., below. A claimant’s Pre-Dispute Notice requirement is a prerequisite to any arbitration, and a copy of the Pre-Dispute Notice and evidence that it was sent as required by this Section must be attached to any arbitration demand.
- Agreement to Arbitrate. You and Airbnb mutually agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Host Damage Protection Terms or the applicability, breach, termination, validity, enforcement or interpretation thereof, or any use of the Airbnb Platform, Host Services, or any Content (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration on an individual basis (the “Arbitration Agreement”). If there is a dispute about whether this Arbitration Agreement can be enforced or applies to our Dispute, you and Airbnb agree that the arbitrator will decide that issue. If there is a dispute about whether this Arbitration Agreement can be enforced or applies to a Dispute, you and Airbnb agree that an arbitrator will decide that issue. For the avoidance of doubt, you and Airbnb agree that any question regarding arbitrability and the formation, enforceability, validity, scope, or interpretation of all or part of this Section IX, including any dispute over compliance with the Pre-Dispute Notice requirement and a party’s responsibility to pay arbitration fees, shall be resolved exclusively by an arbitrator.
- Exceptions to Arbitration Agreement. You and Airbnb each agree that the following causes of action and/or claims for relief are exceptions to the Arbitration Agreement and will be brought in a judicial proceeding in a court of competent jurisdiction (as defined by Section 21 of the Terms for Users outside of the EEA, UK, and Australia): (i) any claim or cause of action alleging actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights; (ii) any claim or cause of action seeking emergency injunctive relief based on exigent circumstances (e.g., imminent danger or commission of a crime, hacking, cyber-attack); (iii) a request for the remedy of public injunctive relief; (iv) any claim or cause of action for vexatious litigation; or (v) any individual claim of sexual assault or sexual harassment arising from your use of the Airbnb Platform or Host Services. You and Airbnb agree that any request for the remedy of public injunctive relief will proceed after the arbitration of all arbitrable claims, remedies, or causes of action, and will be stayed pending the outcome of the arbitration pursuant to section 3 of the Federal Arbitration Act.
- Arbitration Forum, Rules, and Governing Law. This Arbitration Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce and the Federal Arbitration Act governs all substantive and procedural interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement, and not state law. The arbitration will be administered by ADR Services, Inc. (“ADR”) (www.adrservices.com) in accordance with the Rules 1, 6-7, 8-9, and 11-12, 45, 54, and 56 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (“Selected Federal Rules”) (https://www.uscourts.gov/rules-policies/current-rules-practice-procedure/federal-rules-civil-procedure) and ADR’s Arbitration Rules then in effect (the “ADR Rules”), except as the Selected Federal Rules or ADR Rules are modified by or conflict with this Arbitration Agreement. The ADR Rules are available at https://www.adrservices.com. If an arbitration demand is submitted to ADR Services in accordance with this agreement and the ADR Rules, and ADR Services cannot or will not administer the arbitration, the arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Selected Federal Rules and the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules and/or other AAA arbitration rules determined to be applicable by the AAA (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified here. The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org. If the AAA cannot and will not administer the arbitration, you and Airbnb shall confer and select an alternative arbitral forum, and if we are unable to agree, either you or Airbnb may ask a court to appoint an arbitrator pursuant to 9 U.S.C. § 5. In that event, the arbitration will be conducted in accordance with the rules of the appointed arbitral forum, unless those rules are inconsistent with the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement.
- Modification of Arbitration Rules - Arbitration Hearing/Location. In order to make the arbitration cost-effective, efficient, and convenient, any required arbitration hearing wherein the amount in controversy does not exceed $1,000,000 shall be conducted remotely via video conference except as otherwise agreed by the parties or instructed by the arbitrator. Any required arbitration hearing in an arbitration wherein the amount in controversy exceeds $1,000,000 shall be conducted in San Francisco County except as otherwise agreed by the parties or instructed by the arbitrator. If the amount in controversy is $10,000 or less, the parties agree to proceed solely on the submission of documents to the arbitrator.
- Modification to Arbitration Rules - Arbitration Fees and Costs. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the ADR Rules and the ADR Services fee schedule (available at http://www.adrservices.com). If you have a gross monthly income of less than 300% of the federal poverty guidelines, you are entitled to a waiver of arbitration fees and costs, exclusive of arbitrator fees. You may request a fee waiver by providing the arbitration provider with a declaration under oath stating your monthly income and the number of persons in your household. If a fee waiver is granted by the arbitration provider and you provide Airbnb with documents necessary to prove that your gross monthly income is less than 300% of the federal poverty guidelines, Airbnb will pay your share of any arbitrator fees.
- Modification of Arbitration Rules - Claims Brought for an Improper Purpose or In Violation of This Arbitration Agreement. Either party may make a request that the arbitrator impose sanctions upon proving that the other party or its attorney(s) has asserted a claim or defense that is groundless in fact or law, brought in bad faith or for the purpose of harassment, or is otherwise frivolous. As allowed by applicable law, the arbitrator shall impose sanctions equal to the requesting party’s reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs upon finding that a claim or defense is groundless in fact or law, brought in bad faith or for the purpose of harassment, asserted in violation of Fed. R. Civ. P. 11(b) (treating the arbitrator as “the court”), or is otherwise frivolous. Either party may seek dismissal of any arbitration filed in violation of any provision of this Arbitration Agreement. Either party may assert in arbitration a counterclaim for the other party’s initiation of proceedings concerning an arbitrable Dispute without complying with or otherwise in violation of the requirements of this Arbitration Agreement. Upon finding that a party has initiated proceedings concerning an arbitrable Dispute without complying with or otherwise in violation of the requirements of this Arbitration Agreement, the arbitrator shall award the other party its actual damages, including but not limited to reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs.
- Arbitrator’s Decision. The arbitrator will issue a written decision which shall include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court with proper jurisdiction. The arbitrator may award any relief allowed by law or the ADR Rules, but declaratory or injunctive relief may be awarded only on an individual basis and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim.
- Jury Trial Waiver. You and Airbnb acknowledge and agree that both parties are each waiving the right to a trial by jury as to all arbitrable Disputes.
- No Class Actions or Representative Proceedings. You and Airbnb acknowledge and agree that, to the fullest extent permitted by law, we are each waiving the right to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action lawsuit, class-wide arbitration, private attorney general action, or any other representative or consolidated proceeding. Unless we agree in writing or as provided in this agreement, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one party’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If there is a final judicial determination that applicable law precludes enforcement of the waiver contained in this paragraph as to any claim, cause of action or requested remedy, then that claim, cause of action or requested remedy, and only that claim, cause of action or requested remedy, will be severed from this agreement to arbitrate and will be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction. In the event that a claim, cause of action or requested remedy is severed pursuant to this paragraph, then you and we agree that the claims, causes of action or requested remedies that are not subject to arbitration will be stayed until all arbitrable claims, causes of action and requested remedies are resolved by the arbitrator.
- Mass Action Waiver. You and Airbnb acknowledge and agree that the relative benefits and efficiencies of arbitration may be lost when 100 or more arbitration claims are filed within 180 days which (1) involve the same or similarly situated parties; (2) are based on the same or similar claims which arise from the same or substantially identical transactions, incidents, alleged violations or events requiring the determination of the same or substantially identical questions of law or fact; and (3) involve the same or coordinated counsel for the parties (“Mass Action”). Accordingly, you and Airbnb agree to waive the right to have any Dispute administered, arbitrated, or resolved as part of a Mass Action (though Section 21 of the Terms for Users outside of the EEA, UK, and Australia, Section 23 of the Terms for European Users, and Section IX.12 of these Host Damage Protection Terms will continue to apply to the Dispute). In case of a dispute, the appointed arbitrator for the first matter instituted within a set of claims identified by either party shall decide whether those claims are part of a Mass Action. If no arbitrator has yet been appointed, an arbitrator shall be appointed solely to determine whether claims identified by either party are part of a Mass Action. Nothing in this provision prevents you or Airbnb from participating in a mass settlement of claims.
- Modification of Arbitration Rules – Mass Action Batching Requirements. If for any reason, notwithstanding Section IX.13, an arbitration proceeds as part of a Mass Action, the parties shall group the arbitration demands into batches of no more than 200. The batches shall be determined by listing the claimants’ alphabetically (by last name or business name, as applicable)—for example, the first 200 claimants listed will be the first batch, the next 200 claimants listed will be the second batch, and so forth. The parties shall randomly assign each batch a sequential number and arbitrate the batches one at a time, in sequential order. While one batch is being arbitrated, the arbitration provider shall hold the remainder in abeyance unless otherwise agreed by the parties or instructed by the arbitration provider. Each batch shall be resolved within 240 days of the pre-hearing conference for that batch. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any claimant’s demand has not been the subject of a pre-hearing conference within 2 years of the latest-filed demand in the Mass Action, such claimant may elect to pursue the claims asserted in the claimant’s demand in court subject to Section 21 of the Terms for Users outside of EEA, UK, and Australia, Section 23 of the Terms for European Users, and Section IX.12 of these Host Damage Protection Terms.
- Modifications of Arbitration Rules - Offers of Judgment. At least 10 days before the date set for the arbitration hearing, you or Airbnb may serve a written offer of judgment on the other party to allow judgment on specified terms. If the offer is accepted, the offer with proof of acceptance shall be submitted to the arbitration provider, who shall issue an award accordingly. If the offer is not accepted prior to the arbitration hearing or within thirty 30 days after it is made, whichever occurs first, it shall be deemed withdrawn and cannot be given as evidence in the arbitration, other than with respect to costs (including all fees paid to the arbitration provider). If an offer made by one party is not accepted by the other party, and the other party fails to obtain a more favorable award, the other party shall not recover their post-offer costs and shall pay the offering party’s costs (including all fees paid to the arbitration provider) from the time of the offer.
- Severability. Except as provided in Section IX.12, in the event that any portion of this Arbitration Agreement is deemed illegal or unenforceable, such provision will be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement will be given full force and effect.
- Amendment to Agreement to Arbitrate. If Airbnb amends this Section IX after the date you last accepted these Host Damage Protection Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Host Damage Protection Terms), you may reject the change by sending us written notice no later than 30 days of the date the change is effective. Your notice must include your name, mailing address, the date of the notice, your Airbnb username, the email address you used to set up your Airbnb account, your signature, and an unequivocal statement that you want to opt out of the amended Section IX. You must either mail your notice to this address: 888 Brannan St, San Francisco, CA 94103, Attn: Arbitration Opt-Out or email the op-out notice to firstname.lastname@example.org. Rejecting a new change, however, does not revoke or alter your prior consent to any earlier agreements to arbitrate any Dispute between you and Airbnb (or your prior consent to any subsequent changes thereto), which will remain in effect and enforceable as to any Dispute between you and Airbnb.
- Survival. Except as provided in Section IX.16 and subject to Section 12.6 of the Terms for Users outside of the EEA, UK, and Australia , this Section IX will survive any termination of these Host Damage Protection Terms and will continue to apply even if you stop using the Airbnb Platform or terminate your Airbnb account.
X. General Provisions
Host’s Indemnification Obligations
You agree to release, defend, indemnify, and hold Airbnb and its affiliates and subsidiaries, and their officers, directors, employees and agents, harmless from and against any costs, claims, liabilities, damages, losses, fees, and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees, arising out of or in any way connected with Host Damage Protection and these Host Damage Protection Terms.
If you rent (rather than own) the Accommodation that you list as an Eligible Accommodation, the immediately preceding paragraph applies specifically to any dispute between you and the owner of the Accommodation. You are fully responsible for securing the lessor’s permission to list the Accommodation with Airbnb and complying with the scope of any permission granted.
These Host Damage Protection Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between Airbnb and you regarding Host Damage Protection and these Host Damage Protection Terms, and supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between Airbnb and you regarding Host Damage Protection.
You may not assign or transfer these Host Damage Protection Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without Airbnb’s prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Host Damage Protection Terms, without such consent, will be null and of no effect. Airbnb may assign or transfer these Host Damage Protection Terms, at its sole discretion, without restriction. Your right to terminate the Agreement with Airbnb remains unaffected. Subject to the foregoing, these Host Damage Protection Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.
Unless specified otherwise, any notices or other communications to Members permitted or required under this Agreement, will be in writing and given by Airbnb via email, Airbnb Platform notification, or messaging service (including SMS and WeChat). For notices made to Members residing outside of Germany, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which Airbnb transmits the notice.
Controlling Law and Jurisdiction
These Host Damage Protection Terms will be interpreted in accordance with Sections 21 and 24 of the Terms for Users outside of the EEA, UK, and Australia and Section 23 of the Terms for European Users.
Waiver and Severability
The failure of Airbnb to enforce any right or provision of these Host Damage Protection Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Airbnb. Except as expressly set forth in these Host Damage Protection Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Host Damage Protection Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Host Damage Protection Terms or otherwise. If for any reason an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Host Damage Protection Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Host Damage Protection Terms will remain in full force and effect.
