We have new regulations coming in next month which, while not too onerous, will certainly increase the bureaucracy (this is Spain, after all!)
One of the requirements is that we take a copy of the passport or national ID card of each guest over 16, fill in a form with their personal information and send this to the local police station (who are going to LOVE the extra work!) This is routinely done at hotels here, but is new for holiday rentals.
My question is, do you think I should warn guests about this ahead of time? I don’t want them to be spooked by being asked this when they arrive, but I also don’t want to put them off ahead of time! Is anyone else required to do this, and if so, how do you handle it?,
