Amsterdam's somewhat new approach to Airbnb...

Amsterdam city council is no longer planning to stop people using websites such as Airbnb to rent out their homes to holidaymakers, website nu.nl reported on Friday.

Council research shows holiday rentals can be a boost to tourism and the city’s economy, nu.nl quoted officials as saying. Amsterdam is Airbnb's sixth most popular location.

Earlier this year, the city said it planned to take steps to stop people renting out their homes on a temporary basis. New York and Quebec have already made similar moves.

Go Amsterdam !!!    I'm an unapologetic user of the site as a renter and now as a provider.  My first guests are coming in 2 days and I'm looking forward to it.  Travel money and maybe even new carpet!  In that order of priority.

Very interesting. I, for one, hope other municipalities follow Amsterdam's lead!
