We work closely with municipalities around the world to ensure the cities our partners are based in remain thriving destinations.
In some high-demand cities, new legislation has come into force to protect both residents and guests, and to help prevent illegal holiday 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 licence if they wish to list their place for short-term holiday rental. In some cases, local authorities can limit bookings to a maximum number of nights. In other cases, a limit on guest occupancy may be enforced.
You can find more detailed information, as well as the latest updates about which legislation applies to you, on your local municipality’s website (see list of links below).
Disclaimer: The information and links found below are provided as a courtesy and do not constitute a complete overview of all mandatory legal requirements. You may be subject to further requirements (licences, permits, health/safety, zoning, etc.) in order to make your property available for short-term rental on our platform. Please consult your own legal advisor for further guidance and information.
