Tourism minister Bel Busquets has announced today that the government is to fine TripAdvisor 300,000 euros for failing to comply with legislation on publicising holiday rental accommodation. In other words, there were adverts for properties that did not show the necessary licence registration number.
Busquets explained that TripAdvisor has been sent 25 screenshots of properties which were in breach of the legislation. "There were many more," she noted. "We have initiated the process of sanctioning them with the same amount as Airbnb, and we have notified them of the sanction." With regard to Airbnb, Busquets said that the government has received no submissions regarding the fine that was imposed last month. The deadline for a response is tomorrow.
Other websites, she added, have fallen into line with the legislation. "Our law is working because what they are doing is removing all offers that do not comply with the law."
