A real estate and tourism activities company operating in Algarve, named Silmar exhibited on their webpage, under terms and conditions, a clause specifying that for Roma the rental deposits amount should never be less than 5.000€ for an apartment and 10.000€ for a villa. SOS Racismo [SOS Racism] denounced this practice with a press release dated from the 5th September 2012 and immediately afterwards that clause was removed from the webpage.

SOS Racism states that the racial discrimination in tourism and housing sectors is not a new thing, but this is one of the rare occasions when a company announces publicly and in a written document a discriminatory practice, making it part of the contract that establishes with its clients.
