Airbnb is increasingly facing difficulties in some cities and countries. Local authorities in some cities create various prohibitions that prevent the delivery of housing for short-term rent. Why?

Short-term rent of houses and apartments as accommodation for tourists in popular tourist places has become popular all over the world in recent years. In many cases, living in a rented apartment during travel is more profitable than at a hotel. Owners of apartments receive a good income. But there are people who suffer from this. Local residents can not rent an apartment in their city. Or the rental price becomes too high for the locals.

Residents of famous tourist places have repeatedly expressed their dissatisfaction with the fact that the influx of tourists led to serious violations of their way of life. Including they are not happy with the fact that long-term rent of apartments has become too expensive. The owners of hotels also lose profits.

Local authorities in some European cities want to limit or prohibit apartment and house owners from renting their homes for short term rental to tourists through online services such as Airbnb and Homeaway. For example, such restrictions want to introduce the power of Berlin and Palma de Mallorca. Surely their example will follow the power of other popular tourist towns.
