A class-action lawsuit against Airbnb in Quebec alleges that the company charged customers an amount other than that initially posted on its website.\nWithout admitting liability, Airbnb is offering compensation to participants in the class-action.\nVisit MTLBlog for more headlines.\nIf you're a Quebec resident and booked an Airbnb anywhere in the world between 2014 and 2019, you can participate in a class-action lawsuit and get compensated up to $45.\nApproved by the Quebec Superior Court on September 23, the class-action alleges that Airbnb illegally advertised "fragmented prices" on their website and mobile app between August 22, 2014, and June 28, 2019. The American company has seen a surge of popularity in recent years across the globe and many Quebecers use the site the book their vacation accommodations.\nUnder the settlement, Quebec residents will be eligible to receive a $45 credit on their Airbnb account. The total compensation package is $3 million.\nThe class-action is open to "all residents of Quebec who have made a booking on the Airbnb platform for purposes other than business, and who have paid more than the price originally posted," according to the judgement.\nThe plaintiff, Martin Preisler, alleges that Airbnb violated Quebec's Consumer Protection Act "by showing consumers one price, but then adding 13% to 17% more on account of 'Service Fees' at the last step." Airbnb categorically denies the allegations.\nThe company changed its policy on June 26, 2019, and "displayed pricing for Accommodations inclusive of the applicable Guest Fees."\nThe class-action was originally filed in 2017 but was only approved late last month.\nThe plaintiff alleges that while booking accommodation for a trip to Florida, he paid an extra $141 in service charges on top of the quoted room price.\nView this post on Instagram A short walk from Echo Beach, Superhost Michael’s Airbnb Plus villa is equally well-suited for lazy poolside days and intense surfing action.
