TravelTech Supports Short-term Rentals

Recognising the importance of short-term rentals for New Orleans’ tourism success, Travel Technology Association (TravelTech)

sent a letter to the New Orleans City Council regarding upcoming decisions on the regulation of the sector.

In the letter, TravelTech recommended that municipalities embrace this economic opportunity by working with industry stakeholders to establish a reasonable framework for regulating short-term rental activity so that all may benefit.

It also highlighted its support for formal regulations that legalise short-term rentals and belief that owners, property managers or hosts should be required to register their property and pay the applicable local taxes, stressing that regulations and requirements for registration and taxation should be reasonable, affordable and easy to comply with.
