How is the booking fee calculated?

Table of Contents

Booking fees apply for listings on the pay-per-booking listing model.

This overall fee is comprised of:

  • 5% commission charged for the rental amount, any fees (such as cleaning or pet fees), and any additional payments.
  • 3% credit card processing fee charged on the total payment amount you receive from your traveller, including taxes and refundable damage deposits. The portion of the processing fee charged for the damage deposit is refunded when you refund the deposit.

VAT is only payable on the commission charge of 5%. The VAT percentage charge will be based on your country of residency.

Products offered to your travellers, such as Property Damage Protection, Carefree Rental Guarantee, and Cancellation Protection, are not subject to any fees.

If you are a property manager managing your HomeAway listings from within your software, you are charged a 5% booking fee calculated on the rental amount and mandatory fees, excluding taxes and refundable damage deposits.
