Airbnb hosts in Belgium have been welcoming guests into their homes since 2009. In 2016, Airbnb hosts in Belgium welcomed over 600,000 visitors by sharing their homes for an average of 29 nights. Airbnb helps grow and diversify tourism in Belgium, brings tremendous economic, social and environmental benefits to the local economy and provides guests with authentic and local travel experiences. We want to work with policymakers – in all regions of Belgium – on clear and simple rules for home sharing. By working together, we can help more people experience Belgium like a local and support more families to earn a little extra money to help pay the bills.
