That includes any all internet platforms - forums like this, Facebook forums etc anywhere that a property is advertised without it having a licence can be fined, not just the 'big' owner web portals.

It applies if you currently advertise your property for rent on ANY form of website e.g. HomeAway, Airbnb, Simply Owners, Simply Menorca, etc.

Did anyone see on the news last week about protesters against tourism in Mallorca smashing up rental cars? It was quite alarming wondering if this will spread to Menorca. :shock:

But the root of the problem is people not complying with the laws, laws that protect and ensure the welfare of the holidaymaker and the property owner.

What needs to happen is that things come to a head with the Platforms and Politicians Be interesting to see what the platform lawyers do to test some of the area of the tourist law that prevent fair competition, property owners rights etc

I recall some statement well over a year/(18months)? ago about the 'record' fine been imposed by Balearics Government on the top three platforms - did if ever amount to anything/actutally take place?

Lots of hot air about quality standards when there where no resources put in place to inspect?

There is no way for any member of the public to look up a licence number anyway?
