Airbnb adds checks and balances to Experiences in bid to boost trust

Airbnb has provided a further update on its "10-day sprint" for the development of new trust initiatives following a shooting at a property in suburb of San Francisco last month. The company, which said it would review every host property and flag where properties had been verified, is now extending its trust policies to Airbnb Experiences. The company says it is introducing new tools to verify the quality and accuracy of its Experiences via a series of signals, including information from guests. Further measures include expanding the list of technically-specialized activities - helicopter rides and white-water rafting, for example - for which suppliers must now produce proof of their permits.
