The Dutch capital wants to limit the rental days on the platform.
Local authorities plan to reduce the number of days a private apartment may be rented via the Airbnb online platform to 30 days per year. This limitation should be effective from January 1, 2019.
Currently, the limit is set at 60 days. It is therefore expected to be halved within the city. The purpose of this new limit is to reduce the influx of tourists into the capital and thereby reduce nuisances such as noise and deterioration as well as increases in housing prices.
This echoes the situation in Barcelona where the city council implemented restrictions in 2016 in response to complaints from residents and to counter illegal rentals.
