Airbnb Response to PLAN Act

The PLAN Act was drafted by a longtime hotel executive, is underwritten by the big hotel lobby, and serves just one purpose: to stifle any competition to the big hotels. This bill knowingly ignores the solutions Airbnb has championed in city after city that provide governments with the data and the tools they need to effectively enforce local short-term rental rules and collect taxes.

We remain committed to continue working with any government to create smart, reasonable home sharing rules, but the PLAN Act is not that.
