Moving forward in Andalusia: our commitment to working with governments across Spain

From May, it will be easier for hosts in Andalusia to welcome travellers into their homes, as Airbnb will launch an online registration system that will simplify complying with Andalusian vacation rental laws. Andalusia becomes the first region in Spain to implement this system, which is successfully working in Portugal and other cities around the world.

Hosts across Andalusia will be able to register their short-term rental, obtaining a licence number from the regional government, and clearly display this on their listing. For hosts already registered, there will be an easy way to directly include a registration number on their listing.

As we’ve seen in other regions, by implementing this new system, even more families will be able to benefit from home sharing. In the last year, over one million visitors stayed in the region thanks to Airbnb, with over 30,000 local families earning €157 million. The typical host on Airbnb earned €2,700 and the typical listing is shared for 34 nights a year – less than three days a month.
