About pay-per-booking fees
If you’re using the pay-per-booking listing model, booking fees will apply to your listings. The booking fee consists of a 3% payment processing and 5% commission fee. Fees don’t apply to Property Damage Protection and Cancellation Protection.
A 5% commission fee is charged on the rental amount and any additional fees you charge the traveler (such as cleaning, pet, and boat fees). Bookings that originate from our expanded distribution partners may have higher fees.
A 3% payment processing fee is charged on the total payment amount you receive from your guest, including taxes and refundable damage deposits. The processing fee charged on the damage deposit portion is reimbursed when you refund the traveler’s deposit.
Fees when using property management software
If you use property management software to manage your listings, you’re charged a 5% booking fee for bookings made through our family of sites. The fee is calculated on the rental amount and mandatory fees, excluding taxes and refundable damage deposits.
Taxes and security deposits
Taxes and security deposits are subject to a 3% payment processing fee but not a 5% commission fee. Where VAT applies, VAT is charged in addition to the 5% commission.
