Airbnb – Falling Foul of EU Law

Posted by mxs on 18th July 2018

Many B&B Owners members have expressed concerns about Airbnb and the effect this has on their business.

Airbnb is falling foul of EU consumer laws and has been warned to correct their pricing practices.

They only show the service charge to guests once they have chosen and selected there accommodation – this is typically 17%

This nearly always makes booking with Airbnb more expensive than booking direct.
