UK Airbnb visits rise by 81% in a year and rake in £657million

Thursday 27 April 2017

In every region of the UK, there are at least 2,000 Airbnb properties available, with each household raking in around £3,600 a year by renting out their spare spaces.
Over 6million people stayed at an Airbnb home in the last year, raking in around £3.46billion for the economy and £657million for local households, the group claimed in its first UK insights Report. 

Over three-quarters of people listing their spare spaces on Airbnb use their primary home for guests.
Throughout the course of a year, Britons listed on Airbnb let out their rooms for 36 nights.

 

Hosts' neighbours can often be left facing unwanted noise and disruption from the numerous comings and goings, while the taxes and regulations applied elsewhere in the UK's hospitality sector simply do not apply to Airbnb guests or their hosts.
From 1 January, Airbnb's system started automatically limiting Greater London's 'entire home' listings, which is where an entire property is rented out as one unit, rather than as individual bedrooms,  to accepting no more than 90 nights of bookings per the calendar year.

Worse still, councils have neither the information nor the resources to ensure that the rules- especially the rule that says properties can't be let in excess of 90 days a year- are properly enforced. No-one wants to turn the clock back but we need effective regulation and the means to enforce it to balance the interests of landlords, neighbours and taxpayers.'
