Airbnb Agency in Amsterdam has Lost Around 80 Percent of its Addresses

Airbnb lost around 80 percent of its addresses after the introduction of mandatory registration in Amsterdam. The new rule was introduced as a measure against the housing shortage in Amsterdam.

Following the introduction of stricter rules for private room rental companies, the Airbnb agency in Amsterdam has lost around 80 percent of its addresses.

A spokesman for the city confirmed this, registration has been mandatory in Amsterdam since October 1st. If you want to rent your apartment to tourists, you have to register in advance. As a result, the number of advertisements for all online accommodation agencies fell drastically, at market leader Airbnb from more than 16,200 in the spring to around 2,900.

Amsterdam had previously tried several times to curb private room letting, primarily to counter the great housing shortage in the Dutch capital and to curb mass tourism. From October landlords must now include a registration number in their advertisement. This makes it much easier for the authorities to track down illegal landlords.
