Boston Massachusetts

As home sharing grows, Boston benefits. Airbnb is bringing more visitors to the city who are seeking authentic, affordable stays — from the North End to South Boston — and bringing local hosts extra income to help pay their bills, rent or mortgage.

Airbnb is committed to working with local lawmakers to craft fair, clear home sharing rules, including new laws that enable Airbnb to collect and remit hotel taxes and inject revenue into city and commonwealth services.
