Extra fees and taxes

Most channels require that you display fees and taxes separately from the rental rate, this is often due to local legal rules. It is also important to display rates and fees clearly to the guest upon booking.


Any additional payments the guest will be required to make for services provided by the client (e.g. Internet access, shuttle, ski pass) or fees defined by local government that do not fall into tax category, like environmental fees.

Fees can be mandatory or optional.

Depending on the Channels and the connection types, the channel will receive the Fees & Taxes from Rentals United (Airbnb, HomeAway, etc) or you will have to add them directly in the property in the channel (Booking.com, Expedia, etc). For more information about this, please, contact us HERE.

Note that extra fees are not mandatory since you may not have any and the rules for taxes varies depending on the location of your properties.
