What to expect when you book a hotel in Singapore: The Airbnb ban is here to stay.
In the last 24 hours, Singapore has been forced to take action against Airbnb hosts who have violated its ban on short-term rentals.
The company says the ban is “unconstitutional” and will “unreasonably restrict the ability of businesses to compete in Singapore”.
Here’s what you need to know about the ban, how to get through the initial security check and how to take advantage of other hotel booking sites.
Read moreThe ban came into effect on February 6, but has been widely criticised by Singaporeans who are frustrated with the lack of competition from short-lived properties.
Airbnb Singapore CEO Jia Lee said the ban will make Singapore “more of a Airbnb competitor”, as well as limiting the availability of services such as hotel rooms.
“In the future, if there are new types of hotel rooms that are not available for short-stay rentals, we will have to work on a more flexible approach,” he told the Straits Times.
“If there are any hotels that are available for shorter stays, we may also have to consider that.”
In an effort to prevent any new forms of short- stay hotel accommodation from being introduced, Airbnb has taken steps to make sure its properties are safe.
The site has already removed its hotel listings from several Singapore hotels, and the company has issued an apology to those who were not notified.
Airbnb has also been cracking down on the use of the platform by hosts, with Airbnb suspending a host’s access to the site last week, after it was discovered that one guest was using the service to host a fake hotel.
Airbnb Singapore is also introducing a new verification system that will allow users to check if their hotel is legitimate.
But the company also confirmed to the Straittts Times that it would continue to ban hosts who violate the ban.
“Airbnb has been enforcing the Airbnb Residence Host Agreement for many years, and is taking the enforcement of this agreement very seriously.
It is a complicated and complex agreement, and we take this very seriously,” the company said in a statement.
“We are also taking all necessary actions to help ensure that the Residence Reservation Services are not used by anyone who has broken this agreement.”
Airbnb is also cracking down further on the site’s hosts who are not complying with its policy.
Airbnb is now removing hosts who refuse to sign the Reservation Agreement and have not submitted their information for verification.
The Airbnb Host Agreement has been in place since January 1, and it sets out Airbnb’s terms of service for hosting short-stays, including a provision requiring hosts to have a valid passport and proof of residence.
Airline flights to Singapore have been affected by the ban in the past.
Last week, Singapore Airlines announced that all scheduled flights from Singapore to the United States were temporarily suspended until further notice.
However, there are no flights to the US scheduled in the immediate future, and Singapore Airlines says there is no change to that status.
“Our primary concern is the safety of our passengers and crew,” the airline said in an email.
“The airline will continue to monitor the situation and will respond accordingly.”
Airline CEO K Shanmugam told reporters that Singapore Airlines is “working closely” with authorities to “ensure a safe and secure flight experience for Singaporeans”.
Singapore Airlines has also started to investigate the possible damage caused by the Airbnb Airbnb ban.
Airport authorities are also trying to work out whether the ban should be extended to other countries in the region.
The Singapore International Airport Authority said it will review its policy and procedures on Airbnb’s platform, and will then make a decision about whether to apply the ban to other cities.
“I am concerned that there is some confusion in the country about how to deal with Airbnb and how it affects local travel,” the airport authority said in the statement.
Airports are also working on new guidelines for hotels, with airport authorities working with Airbnb to develop new policies and regulations.
“This is a huge opportunity for Airbnb to be the leader in the Airbnb industry and the airport authorities are doing their best to meet their obligations,” Airbnb Singapore managing director David Wong told the New Straits Year in Review magazine.
