'Disabled Airbnb' bought by Airbnb
A London firm sparked by two disabled people's frustration at hotels' inaccurate information on accessibility has been bought by Airbnb. Like Airbnb, home owners are able to rent out rooms or entire properties via the website which only shows places which have step-free access and detailed information on accessibility adaptations. Airbnb said Accomable would now be wound down over the next few months, with the listings incorporated into its own website,. "While we have rules that prohibit discrimination against people with disabilities and an Open Doors policy that helps ensure everyone can find a place to stay, it's clear that we can do more to effectively serve people with disabilities," Airbnb said. Airbnb didn't say how much it had paid for Accomable, but Mr Madipalli said the sale would enable it to finally meet customers' demands.
