EU business ministers have approved new rules for short-term rental booking platforms across the European Union. Ministers for competitiveness have agreed on a negotiating mandate for the regulation on data collection and sharing for short-term accommodation rental services, as part of the ongoing efforts to promote a balanced tourism ecosystem within the EU. The new rules are meant to improve the transparency around the identification and activity of hosts, as well as the rules they have to comply with, which will ultimately facilitate the registration of hosts. Additionally, they aim to tackle illegal listings and the fragmentation in how online platforms share data.
