Rental in China

Why is it necessary to provide personal information when booking housing in China?

When booking housing in China, guests are required to open up personal information. In fact, all tourists planning a stay in China (not including Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan; hereafter referred to as "China") are to provide this information. Although TripAways tries its best to facilitate the process of housing rent as much as possible, we have to gather certain information, just like hospitality providers do. We would also like to note that the information you provide will not be disclosed to the host.
