In 2017, Airbnb acquired Accommable, a startup based out of London that focused on travel listings that are disability or accessibility friendly. As part of the acquisition, Accomable's network of properties was integrated into the wider Airbnb network of properties, as well as an expansion of the filtered searches for accessible properties.

Once you select your destination, you have access to search filters including basic accessibility filters, such as wide doorways and step-free access.

As of 2018, there are now 27 accessibility filters for properties including step-free access, flat paths, wide doorways, lifts and fixed grab bars for showers and toilets as well as roll-in showers and lowered or adjustable beds. This is a massive upgrade of Airbnb's original and only accessible filter which was simply "wheelchair access".
