      Vacation rental owners! Reach more renters and display your vacation rental with more photos, video capability, map location, rental availability calendar, and more for less money than other vacation rental sites.

   We do not charge service fees!
 
Recently (March 2016) two of the largest vacation rental websites began imposing service fees on vacation rental transactions. These service fees will be paid by the renter in addition to the cost of renting the property along with the other fees involved in renting a vacation property. Depending on the rental website, service fees can range from 3%-12% and are paid by the owner, the renter, or both.

Why should this concern anyone?

If you are a vacation rental owner:

1. Obviously, service fees increase the price your renter has to pay to rent your property.

2. If service fees weren't needed last year why are they being implemented this year? What if the fees are increased again next year?

3. On a $2,000 vacation rental service fees in the range of 5%-10% can add $100-$200 in additional cost for the renter. This can price a renter out of your property and force them to choose a different, lower cost property. It can keep last year's renter from coming back this year. Who wants to pay an extra $500-$1,000 on a $10,000 rental? Do they now rent for one week instead of two? For two weeks rather than a month?

4. If the website you are listing with makes a commission on a rental then that website can now make a bigger commission on a more expensive rental. They now have a motivation to promote more expensive rentals instead of less expensive rentals. Are they trying to help you rent your property or collect larger commissions? Which properties are they more interested in seeing rented? How are they determining which properties are seen by prospective renters? Whose interests are they more concerned with?

5. If a renter pays a service fee this year and wants to rent from you next year should that renter pay a service fee next year? Will they want to? Will your listing website try to control/regulate/prevent this so they can collect the fee every time? Will they try to conceal your past renters contact information from you? Will they try to be the middleman on every renter/property owner contact?

6. Unlike many other vacation rental websites we do not charge a service fee to vacation property renters!

If you are a vacation property renter:

1. Why should you pay a service fee to the rental website when the vacation property owner is already paying a fee to the rental website to list their property? In reality you are already paying the owners fee so why are you now being asked to pay a second fee?

2. Will paying a service fee force you to rent a cheaper/less desirable vacation home?

3. Is the rental website preferring to display properties to you that provide them with increased commissions?

4. If you rent the same property next year why should you pay that service fee to rent the same property again next year? What if the fee increases next year?

We do not charge service fees to vacation property renters!
