开曼群岛与Airbnb达成合作
发布时间:2018-05-21 浏览:867


开曼群岛成为Airbnb上的最新目的地,该公司最初只提供非正式的沙发客服务,并一度成为对传统旅游企业和政府金库的威胁。

岛上蓬勃发展的旅游业带来大量的游客,政府官员希望正式协议可以令开曼人民通过线上市场更便捷的将房屋和别墅出租给游客从而获益,同时政府也不会损失至关重要的房屋税收入。

旅游部长莫斯科康内尔与Airbnb区域代表卡洛斯穆诺兹于上周三在政府行政办公室签署了理解备忘录,同意联合营销,数据共享及房屋业主监管标准。

科康内尔先生表示备忘录是开曼群岛“标志性的里程碑”,将为开曼人民创造更多机会,让他们成为企业家,而不用付出巨大代价。

他表示,Airbnb在开曼群岛的扩张将带来更多线上预定,让开曼人民从旅游产业的增长中获益。

他表示,这同样将带动三岛旅游业的发展,让游客有机会与当地人进行有意义的交流 。

“现在我们都有机会成为旅游产业的一部分并与旅客分享当地文化,”部长说。“人们希望体验我们的文化和我们的家园。”

他表示,这还将让旅游官员起到一定程度的监督作用,以帮助确保向游客出租的房屋符合标准,符合监管要求,包括通过酒店执照委员会获得许可并支付旅客房屋税。

穆诺兹先生表示Airbnb呈指数方式增长,在全球范围内拥有超过任何连锁酒店的住宿列表。

他表示公司每年将在开曼群岛与政府官员一起举行两次市政厅会议,为“房东”科普他们的监管义务,并为希望使用该服务出租房屋的人们提供信息。

目前开曼群岛有470个房屋在Airbnb上出租,但科康内尔先生和穆诺兹先生均表示此次合作将使该数字大大增加。

“在家里招待客人,这种做法由来已久”穆尼奥兹说。“这也是未来的趋势。我们通过技术让人们更方便地旅行和联系。我们的目标是通过这个理解备忘录让更多的人们来开曼群岛体验这里的风土人情。”

在其他岛国,Airbnb的增长遭到了旅游官员的抵制,因为其将游客引导向更小的房屋,而这些房屋更难监管,也很难征税。

科康内尔先生表示开曼不存在此类问题,但他认为该协议将帮助旅游产业更健康的发展,保证没有非法出租行为。根据理解备忘录的内容,双方还将进行数据共享,旅游部官员可以获得Airbnb使用者所在区域以及来源等更多信息。


The Cayman Islands has become the latest destination to embrace Airbnb, the company which started as an informal couch surfing service and was once considered a threat to traditional tourism businesses and to government coffers.

Officials hope a formal agreement will make it easier for Caymanians to profit from the islands’ tourism boom by renting rooms or villas to visitors through the online marketplace without government losing out on vital room tax revenue.

Tourism Minister Moses Kirkconnell and Carlos Munoz, Airbnb’s regional representative, signed a memorandum of understanding at the Government Administration Building Wednesday, agreeing to joint marketing, data sharing and regulatory standards for hosts.

Mr. Kirkconnell said the memorandum was a “significant milestone” for the islands and would create more opportunities for Caymanians to become entrepreneurs without huge expense.

He said the expansion of Airbnb in Cayman would assist in bringing new rooms online and allowing Caymanians to benefit from the growth in the industry.

He said it would also spread tourism growth throughout the island and allow visitors the opportunity for meaningful interaction with local people.

“We all have an opportunity now to become part of the tourism product and to share our culture with visitors,” the minister said. “People want to experience our culture, our home.”

He said it would also give tourism officials a degree of oversight to help ensure properties being rented to visitors were up to standard and compliant with regulatory requirements, including being licensed through the Hotel Licensing Board and paying visitor room taxes.

Mr. Munoz said Airbnb was growing exponentially, with more listings around the world than any hotel chain.

He said the company would be hosting two town hall meetings per year in the Cayman Islands along with government officials to educate its “hosts” on their regulatory obligations and to provide information to people who wanted to rent their rooms using the service.

There are currently 470 properties in the Cayman Islands listed with Airbnb but both Mr. Kirkconnell and Mr. Munoz suggested the partnership should increase that number.

“This is a very old practice, of hosting people in your homes,” said Mr. Munoz. “It is also now the future. Through technology, we are making it easier for people to travel and connect. It is our aim through this MOU to be able to bring more folks to the Cayman Islands to experience what you have to offer.”

In other island nations, the growth of Airbnb has been resisted by tourism officials because it has diverted visitors to smaller properties, which are harder to regulate and to collect taxes from.

Mr. Kirkconnell said Cayman has not had that issue, but suggested the agreement would help it keep better tabs on the industry to ensure there are no illegal renters operating. There will also be a degree of data sharing through the MOU, allowing tourism officials to get better information on where Airbnb users are staying and where they are coming from.
