We work closely with municipalities around the world to make sure the cities our partners are based in remain thriving destinations.
In some high-demand cities, new legislation has been put into effect to protect both residents and guests, as well as to prevent illegal vacation rentals. Before listing your property on Booking.com, it's important to be aware of any short-term rental regulations that affect your city, region, or country.
Many governments and municipalities now require property owners to hold and/or display a special permit or license if they list their place for short-term vacation rentals. In some cases, local authorities can limit bookings to a maximum number of nights. In others, a limit on guest occupancy might be enforced.
You can find more detailed info, as well as the latest updates about which legislation applies to you on your local municipality’s website (see list of links below):
