Earlier this year, I shared some exciting news from Amsterdam where the City gave final approval to a new policy that embraces home sharing. Today, I’m pleased to announce that we are strengthening our partnership with the City and that we will work together to promote responsible home sharing in Amsterdam and to simplify the payment of tourist tax for our hosts.
The details of this partnership, which is the first of its kind in Europe, can be found here.
This is good news for our hosts, who will benefit from a simplified tourist tax process and clearer information on what local laws and regulations may apply to them.
It is also a great example of how we are working together with policy makers across the world on progressive rules that strengthen cities and help local residents make a little extra money to afford living costs.
We are excited by the growing list of destinations that are embracing home sharing and the benefits it offers.
