Online holiday accommodation site Airbnb raised over €3.5 million in tourist taxes for the cities of Lisbon and Porto during the first six months of 2018, and has overall generated €9.1 million in tourist taxes since they were introduced in Portugal in 2016.

Lisbon council alone received €2.6 million euros in tourist tax through the short-term hospitality accommodation rental platform Airbnb.
Since 2016, Airbnb has collected €9.1 million in tourist taxes that were delivered to the corresponding Portuguese municipalities (Lisbon and Porto), which reached €3.5 million during the first half of this year, the company said in a statement sent on Tuesday.
Airbnb states that while €2.6 million euros in tourist tax were paid out to Lisbon, in Porto, where the tourist tax was established in an agreement with Airbnb from April, €963,000 were collected in three months, and have also been handed over to the council.
