What is an RTA number?
RTA numbers are special reference numbers given by the Andalusian Regional Government to private holiday rental properties in Andalusia. Property owners must apply to the government for an RTA number which will legally allow them to accept short term rentals. The law is called the Decree 28/2016 of 2nd February 2016 and among other things, it gives holiday-makers the assurance that their holiday property will provide certain quality and safety features.
An RTA number will have this type of format VTA/MA/012345 and must be displayed in ALL publicity and promotional material through any media.
How do I include the RTA number in my holiday rental listing?
You will find the RTA text box on the [Details] tab of a property listing, underneath the Agency Refs area.
This number will only display on the property when an agent does a search for Short Term Rentals.
How can I see the RTA number on a short-term rental property?
In ReSales-Online it will display at the top of the property details page beside the system reference number.
On PropExtra.com it will display under the property photo.
It will be available on the Mobile version in a future release.
Which window cards should I use to display the RTA number?
Currently the RTA number will appear on window cards number 39, 40 and 41 and also on Email Format 4.
