NEW RULES for Tourist Lets

New decree regulating tourist accomodation in the Valencia region has been approved.

It brings together all the decrees for each specific type of accomodation in a single text, explained the regional government.

One of the most significant espects is that it makes it illegal to offer tourist lets of single rooms in homes.

The decree’s purpose is to regulate the activities and services, forms, classifications and working practices of establishments according to Law 15/2018 on tourism, leisure and hospitality.

Another aim was to adapt the legislation to new social, professional, technological and regulatory contexts. It alos establishes rules for applicable prices and introduces the need to have civil liability insurance. Tourist lodgings are required to follow the principles of the Global Code of Ethics for Tourism (GCET) and the adaption of this to the Valencian code of ethics for tourism.

Regarding online advertising, more information will have to be provided, and the role of tourist accomodation management companies to act as madiators has been reinforced, requiring them to keep the name of the owner up to date in the regestry. All advertising will be required to include the property’s registration number, which will be particularly closely monitored online, and the oweners of channels for publicity or marketing will be held jointly responsible. The decree also establishes that in rural houses with shared accomodation, the users must have access to all the common areas.
