I’m a renter, not an owner. Can I still rent out my place occasionally?

As long as you have permission from the owner, you may participate in short-term rentals.

What about damages, Am I insured?

Airbnb provides you with two levels of protection: a security deposit and no-extra-cost insurance. First, it allows you to set a security deposit to cover possible damage caused by guests. The security deposit can be set as high as 5,000 euros. If damage occurs, we can submit the claim for you. Our experience is that Airbnb works hard to resolve claims quickly and fairly so that host losses are covered. Second, when a security deposit is not enough, Airbnb’s host guarantee provides protection to eligible property for up to 1,000,000 euros in damages.

What about paying tax?

On December 18, 2014, Airbnb and the city of Amsterdam reached an agreement that required Airbnb to collect a tourist tax beginning February 1, 2015. Airbnb guests booking a stay in Amsterdam will be charged a 5 percent tourist tax on their reservation.

How much does it cost?
