The dispute once again concerns the tourist tax, its collection and its payment. The judges of La Rochelle sanctioned Booking for having delayed in communicating its data for the years 2020 and 2021.

A new penalty, higher and set in December 2023, finally decided Booking to transmit the files last February. The data provided by Booking reveals a slate of nearly 8,500 euros, ensuring the Oléronaise intercommunality. Another decision is expected in the coming days and this time concerns the year 2022. In this case, the island ofOléron – whose fight is being scrutinized throughout France – is demanding nearly 5.8 million euros from Airbnb. The other American giant was sentenced in September 2023 to pay a fine of 30,000 euros for these same reasons. This other decision will be rendered next September – the judgment is expected to be rendered in the week of September 20, 2023. For this other dispute, no hearing has yet been set to date.
