Netherlands | Amsterdam will ban Airbnb-like rentals in 3 historic WH-listed neighborhoods

AMSTERDAM (AP) — Amsterdam, in the midst of an unprecedented tourism slump caused by restrictions aimed at slowing the spread of the coronavirus, announced Thursday that it is planning to ban people from renting out homes to visitors in three historic downtown neighborhoods.

The move, which is set to come into force July 1, is the Dutch capital's latest attempt to rein in people renting their homes out on platforms like Airbnb amid complaints from residents that tourists are spoiling their quality of life.
