Derived from the sharing economy, shared accommodations have found their place in the tourism industry, and are now considered as key market players. While the notion of sharing remains at the core of the concept for some of its users, others have made a business out of it. The regulatory fog surrounding the sharing economy is nonetheless dissipating. Even if regulations tighten, shared accommodations represent a new supply that has a place on the market. Hospitality ON has studied this new format: overview of key players, analysis of the professionalization of the industry, and applicable legal and fiscal contexts for the leading destinations in Europe.
- This report offers a portrait of players, in the form of an overview of the different companies present on the international market, with key data such as their breakdown by type of accommodations, or a comparison of the inventories of Airbnb and HomeAway at some destinations in France, and the evolution of their supply in recent years.
- Analysis of the industrialization of the sector: How certain users of shared accommodations platforms have shifted away from the initial concept that was based on the philosophy of sharing in its post literal sense? What does industrialization mean? All based on data illustrating the distortions of the concept in Europe condemned by UMIH and by Katharina Theele of Hotelverband Deutschland (IHA), who share their vision of the need for change in the regulatory framework applying to short-term C2C rentals.
- You plan to join the crowd and put your own property up for rent on these platforms? or you are a professional and wish to understand the specifics of the legal and fiscal frameworks applicable to short-term c2c rentals, as opposed to traditional tourist structures? You will appreciate having local regulations and taxation regimes unraveled for you. This analysis includes several countries and regions in Europe, more precisely those where you can find many secondary residences that may easily be put on the market through these platforms: France, Spain (Catalonia, Balearic Islands, Canaries), Italy, Portugal, Greece and Germany (Land of Berlin)
