VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – The BC Hotel Association is worried private homes and suites rented directly to vacation goers will give our province a bad reputation.
The concern for James Chase with the Association is if tourists stay at one of those places and have a bad experience. “There’s a risk that we spend a lot of time and effort and money to attract people to our destination and they have a bad experience. It’s not tracked in that normal way as everyone else would expect.”
He wants standards to be the same across the province.
“From a taxation standpoint, logic would dictate that they are not contributing to the same tax programs that help market British Columbia to the world.”
