The FBI has warned of the risk of armed protests across the US as Trump supporters and far-right groups call for demonstrations before Joe Biden is sworn in as president on Tuesday.
The company said it would refund any cancelled stays and reimburse hosts.
It will also prevent any new reservations by blocking requests.
Airbnb said: "We are aware of reports emerging yesterday afternoon regarding armed militias and known hate groups that are attempting to travel and disrupt the inauguration."
