Avoid the AirBnB or VRBO Booking Fee! - Blog Post

Description

So you've found the perfect home for you and your guests! It's available for the dates you want and the price is within your budget. You go to check-out and notice that there are all these extra service fees that are pushing the price up. What? You don't want to pay for all that! You just want a wonderful, fun vacation at the lowest price possible. But if you're booking through any of the following sites, you could be paying more than you need to be.

The following are the service fee rates for the most popular vacation rental booking sites:

This can be potentially HUNDREDS of dollars you are losing out on because of one little mistake: you aren't booking direct. Let me explain.

Sites like AirBnB and VRBO act like a travel agent for vacation rentals, connecting guests to vacation homes that they may be interested in. People can use sites like AirBnB if they only have one home, or if they are a property management company, like Vacation Rental 365. If they are a property manager, this means that they are going to be increasing their prices to account for the service fee that they're being charged.

A property that is $400 per night on AirBnB would only be $334 per night if you book directly through the property manger.

That's $66 a night that could be put towards other great things during your trip!

So how do you get the best deal? Well, for Vacation Rental 365, you can google Vacation Rental 365 or click the link here. This will take you to our direct website. From there you can find all kinds of beautiful properties in Cle Elum, Roslyn Ridge, and Suncadia Resort that are available at the lowest prices possible!

Testimonials

Yakima River Retreat “This cabin is not a cabin at all but a really spacious beautiful lodge-style home. Deer wandered throughout the weekend and the view of the nearby river completed the fairy tale scenery. Add into that a nice hot jetted tub soak overlooking that beautiful setting, from the warmth of the very luxurious master bathroom, completes the restful stay for us. We would definitely come back to this lodge for summer or winter stays. ”

Breckenridge Heights “The views were outstanding and the fresh snow just made it magical. I also need to give a shout-out to the great team at VR365 that we worked with. They went above and beyond to help us and were both compassionate yet professional. Do yourself a favor and rent this house! You won't be disappointed!”

Elk Run Lodge “Our family of 10 stayed at Elk Run Lodge for my mom's 80th birthday. We were thrilled with the house. The kitchen has a large island and a very large dining room table. When my parents went to bed in the upstairs master, we headed downstairs to the game room and watched movies, played games, and ping pong. I'm terribly picky about where I stay and I loved this house and hope to rent it again!"

Cascade Mountain Villa “I visit the Roslyn / Ronald area at least 3x a year and each year the area gets more charming with new shops and restaurants.
