Earlier this year, the Flemish government adopted a new regulation on tourist accommodation. Here’s what you need to know:
- The new rules make clear local families can share their homes with guests without prior authorisation
- You need to notify your accommodation via a simple online process
- You need to comply with basic safety rules
The new rules in Flanders are easy to follow, are good news for the many families who want to boost their income and will help spread benefits to more communities and local businesses in the region. Following on from the Walloon region, which adopted similar rules earlier this year, we are pleased that the Flemish region has joined the growing list of European destinations that embrace home sharing.
