UMIH and french hotels declare war on Airbnb

2 min read

The Airbnb application is presented by Apple as one of the “essential” app to download in iPhone. In recent years, Airbnb has become the ideal platform to rent a house. Simple, intuitive, the website have all what you need.

Hoteliers see that Airbnb is an unfair competitor and ask for rentals between individuals to be more regulated.

“I plan everything in advance, says Mathieu. I have an average of 20 passengers per month. I welcome them when I’m there, otherwise my parents who do that. For me it is more profitable, it allows me to pay off my loans. ”

At 80€ per night, for Mathieu Airbnb represents a gain between 1 500€ and  2,000€ per month!

Philippe Flament, vice president of Le Touquet Tourism recognizes gaps on Airbnb. “We are acting to save tourist furnished rental companies that do not pay the tourist tax, he says. We found 283 owners last year, which now pay the tax. “But Philippe Flament recognizes that with Airbnb, it may be impossible to contact the owners directly, because the site keep their contact information.

If, by then, things do not change, the next national conference UMIH will be hot next November in Bordeaux.
