365Villas - Tax and Fees with Airbnb

You can send standard fees added on top of your nightly rates to Airbnb from this section:

Rentals United Account > Services > My Services > Airbnb > Account Settings > Extra Fees > Enable



How it works


Airbnb support 5 types of fees which can be calculated either flat amount per stay or %


Community fee

Resort fee

Linen fee

Management fee

Cleaning fee


Taxes and fees can only be sent to Airbnb from Rentals United if they have the below Rentals United tax or fee name (left column), they will then be sent to Airbnb with the corresponding Airbnb fee type (right column). 


Please note that Rentals United taxes are mapped to Community fee, so any tax sent from Rentals United to Airbnb will always be calculated on rent only. If you want the tax to appear in Airbnb as a tax instead of community fee, it can instead be added manually in Airbnb per property. 


If 2 or more taxes and fees with the same calculation are mapped to the same Airbnb fee they will show a sum of both. If 2 or more fees with different calculation options are mapped to the same Airbnb fee percentage fees will override per stay fees.
