Airbnb has made prices more transparent. With the adjustment, consumers can see at a glance how much money they have spent on renting accommodation at Airbnb. Earlier, the lack of transparency about prices led to criticism.

With the changes to the platform, the platform meets the standards of the European Union, writes the European Commission Thursday.

"This summer holiday, Europeans immediately get what they see when they book their holiday," said European Commissioner Vera Jourová (Justice and Consumer Affairs) Thursday. "I am very pleased that Airbnb wanted to work with the European Commission and national consumer watchdogs to improve the platform."

Brussels warned Airbnb last year about the lack of transparency about the total prices of a booking. The EU wanted the first search on Airbnb to make it immediately clear what a person has to pay for a booking, without adding anything like cleaning costs. With the adjustment to Airbnb this is now solved.

The company has also adjusted its complaints procedure. Airbnb explicitly states that customers can go to court in the event of conflicts with the company, damage and injury.
