The Netherlands took a serious action against Airbnb
Airbnb has quickly become one of the most popular accommodation services when you go on holiday. More and more people prefer “on demand” to the detriment of traditional ones, and much faster payment processing contributes to this choice.
The popularity of the service has given rise to more or less conventional businesses. People started buying or renting apartments to list Airbnb for profit. Even though most countries do not have a problem with this, it is not the case of the Netherlands, namely Amsterdam, who was tired of Airbnb tenants. If until now the citizens of Amsterdam, one of the most visited cities in the world, were allowed to rent their dwellings through Airbnb for 60 days a year, this period was now reduced to 30 days due to the disaffection of the tenants in the various buildings of homes that no longer tasted of the “diversity” of sporadic neighbors, some of them even scandalous. Practically, for a city assaulted by millions of tourists every year, such a decision would reduce the number of scandals broke in certain areas and would even help to decongest traffic in an overcrowded city. Several tourist centers, such as Paris, London or New York, also resort to laws limiting the duration of the Airbnb rental of a home.
