Which Airbnb destinations are in demand in Europe?

Reflecting typical European tourism trends, London and Paris rank as the most popular Airbnb destinations in Europe. Airbnb has become an increasingly popular option for tourists looking for local accommodation. Visitors are attracted to using Airbnb properties instead of hotels and other traditional travel accommodation mainly due to cheaper prices, but also for the location and to gain an authentic experience, by living like a local. However, the site is facing ongoing legal problems, with some destinations moving to ban or restrict rentals from the site due to them worsening housing problems and undermining hotel regulations. Many European cities, including Amsterdam and Paris, have placed limits on the length of rentals, and others such as Barcelona have introduced strict regulations for hosts.

The rise of Airbnb

Airbnb is one of the most successful companies in the global sharing economy. The company was founded in San Francisco, California in 2008, after being conceived by two entrepreneurs looking for a way to offset their high rental costs. Airbnb was developed as an online platform for hosts to rent out their properties on a short-term basis. It now competes with other online travel booking websites including and Expedia.
