ASAE inspectors are now searching ads of existing listings on online platforms such as Booking.com, Airbnb or Home Away to verify their Local Lodging registrations. As of 01 July, those advertising holiday lets on online platforms are required to display their “AL” registration licence number. It is currently estimated that approximately 20% of offerings are illegal. Failure to comply can lead to heavy fines for internet platforms and unlisted local lodging operators.
In the first half of this year, ASAE detected 41 Local Accommodation establishments operating illegally in Portugal. Of more than 500 Local Lodging inspections over the 6 month period, proceedings were raised against 30 unregistered operators.
The Economic and Food Safety Authority (Autoridade de Segurança Alimentar e Económica – ASAE) has developed a detailed form for agents to use when inspecting compliance requirements of Local Lodging establishments. This development marks a more active approach towards implementing current legislation.
