Gaybnb Protects Stakeholders With Timely COVID-19 Policy

Australian LGBTQ+ friendly bed and breakfast service's immediate response to the health crisis was in the interests of clients.

Australia — May 28, 2020: Gaybnb, a premier homeshare platform made exclusively for LGBTQ+ people, has been one of the first small businesses to take steps for protection during the COVID-19 pandemic. Their updated operations policy was formed, keeping the drastically changed landscape for travel in mind, and with their concern for their community.
With the travel industry taking a massive hit in demand and profits, mega-corporations in this sector have been cutting costs by laying off employees. Operations for hotels, airlines, cruises and tourist attractions have had to be shut down or severely limited due to the threat of mass transmission of this novel coronavirus.
On the other hand, as the first cases of the virus emerged in Australia and the situation in Italy began to escalate earlier this year, Gaybnb’s user policy in reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic was ready to go. They immediately notified all their guests with bookings in the near future that they were offering a complete refund for bookings made up till June 2020.
This proactive decision, in a time when people were still taking their vacations and travelling freely, was in the interest of safeguarding their listed hosts as well as their guests. By ensuring that hosts have to pay no listing fee of any kind, Gaybnb’s team was also protecting their service providers.
A senior official of the company told us, “As we watched this crisis unfold globally, we could see that there was no avoiding a partial shutdown of our services during this crisis. However, we operate on notions of safety and security, and it made no sense for us to allow people to travel to places that could endanger them just because we refused to give refunds.
"The solution was obvious, and I'm proud to be part of a team where we executed the ethical option quickly."
Gaybnb’s team is continuing to reevaluate the global situation of the virus as it develops, especially as Australia has been recovering from the outbreak at a fantastic speed. They assure us that their upcoming policies will be airtight and grounded in the advice that health and government professionals are giving.
