What do I need to know about being a guest on Airbnb Experiences and Adventures in remote areas?
In developing best practices for Airbnb Experiences in remote areas, we worked with the Adventure Travel Trade Association (ATTA), expert leaders in the outdoor activities space. Established in 1990, the ATTA today is widely recognized as a vital leadership voice and partner for the adventure travel industry around the world.
A remote area is defined as a location that is one hour or more away from definitive medical care.
Here are some safety tips for experience guests, provided by the ATTA, that cover the most common remote areas where experiences take place:
In addition, if you have questions about the age restrictions, activity level, or details associated with an experience, you can message the host for additional information.
We recommend that all guests and hosts engaging in an experience prepare an emergency plan in case of a natural disaster or any other kind of emergency that could occur during an experience. Find out more about making an emergency plan.
Airbnb provided trip protections
All multi-day trips include 24/7 community support. We also maintain $1,000,000 USD of liability insurance under our Experience Protection Insurance program, in order to provide hosts and guests with peace of mind (certain exclusions apply). Additionally, in the event of a life-threatening injury, we also have partnered with an emergency medevac provider that may be activated to reach an injured party to support a medically necessary evacuation.
