Around the world, travellers choose Airbnb to enjoy unique experiences in local homes beyond tourist hotspots. Travellers to Amsterdam are increasingly choosing to stay in the homes of hosts outside the city centre, helping them to discover new communities they might otherwise have missed. The spread of tourism to these outer neighbourhoods is also helping to extend the economic benefits of cultural tourism to hosts, local businesses and their communities.
Airbnb and Amsterdam continue pioneering collaboration
Amsterdam is a world leader for the sharing economy and is a special city for Airbnb. It was one of the first cities in the world to introduce progressive home sharing rules and the first city in Europe to work with Airbnb to promote the rules and simplify the payment of tourist tax.
Home Sharing Club Launch in Amsterdam
All over the world, hosts are coming together to connect and exchange ideas – there are over 100 Home Sharing Clubs worldwide. Home Sharing Clubs allow Airbnb hosts to build new relationships with local hosts, discuss issues in their communities and help each other find more information about local rules.
