On the other hand company’s officials said that Persian laws relating to renting a house is not good and Airbnb does not accept any allegations made on them. Paris is one of the largest city for company because Airbnb has more than 65000 listings in this city. France is that country where many tourists visit every year due to which Airbnb find s a great business opportunity in this country. But since Paris is putting such type of rules, it’s becoming hard for Airbnb to rent out a house property on rent.
