Airbnb Magazine

オンライン民泊サイト最大手の Airbnb(エアビー、本社サンフランシスコ)から、冊子が届きました...。



でもなんで僕に送ってきたの? と思って、久しぶりにエアビーのサイトに接続。

Why am I receiving Airbnb Magazine and how can I manage my subscription?
Starting in January 2019, we’re aiming to send all hosts in the US (with a valid listing address) and a limited number of guests a free one-year subscription to Airbnb Magazine. Hosts with multiple listings in the US will be sent a free subscription at each of their listing addresses. This one-year subscription is completely on us—no credit card will ever be charged and no bill will ever be sent for the magazines. And if we renew your subscription for you, rest assured, you won’t be charged for the renewal. This is our way of saying thank you for being part of our community.

For those who are not part of this benefit, or if you’d like to receive more than one copy, Airbnb Magazine is available to buy on newsstands for $5.99 US per issue or you can buy a subscription online. If you host or live outside of the US, additional international shipping rates will apply.

    I hear via internet even if you call off your journey because of COVID-19, Airbnb might decline repayments.
    I don’t know whether or not Airbnb’s policy of the deadly virus remains the same.
    In fact, COVID-19 that is at present tending to become more severe or wider in more than a hundred nations, has been striking the travel sector severe.
    Numerous airways including United have canceled their flights to definite but not specified or identified countries and world-famous big hotel chains have shut their properties.
    Many institutions created to conduct business have prohibited their employees to do international travel and let their staffs to exert themselves mentally or physically for a purpose or out of necessity at home.
    I’m afraid Airbnb would also be mentioning the declining shock of the virus.

      Airbnb has their own refund policy, but it can’t override the law of California because their headquarter is located in San Francisco, and I’m a Californian, hence the jurisdiction court will be the same, they have to follow the local rules. Therefore I didn’t pay much attention to their refund policy… but most of travel-related companies are relaxing their restrictions otherwise the company won’t be aided by government as well as users.
      Consumers in the States are very aggressive and vicious if those travel agents didn’t do a right job. You can check a travel magazine i.e. Condé Nast Traveler and seek the stories of ombudsman. Then you will find how travel agents and providers are beaten well and disclosed how they did nasty to the customers. Welcome to America!


    2. Oh, I forgot to leave you a quick but important lesson…

      Under your usage, the word you used must be “The Internet” or just say “Internet” but starting with capital. Please refer to the following.
