A new business association named the Canarian Tourist Circle has been set up to represent the interests of smaller rental owners, in contrast to the larger hotel federations.

The Circle is headed by Doris Borrego, who is also the President of ASCAV, the long-standing Association of Canarian Holiday Rental Owners, but also represents estate agents, construction firms and tourist businesses.

The Circle has presented more than 100 proposals, including measures to make it easier for owners of single properties to rent them out to tourists. They also hope to disincentives or regulate all-inclusive establishments, which they claim “kidnap” tourists and discourage them from spending locally.
