Perhaps I’ll adopt the attitude of ‘I may as well go broke sitting on my deck in the sunshine with a good book instead of working my arse off and inviting strangers to share my home only to give all the money to bdc’ lol.
I’m also with Airbnb and HomeAway. They do not have the traffic I get from bdc but I wonder is if that changed if I built up the reviews. It’s tough because it’s the ‘unknown’. I originally was only with Airbnb and was delighted by how many bookings I received, so I might just have to bite the bullet. Good luck to you.
It’s wrong!!!! We just always seem to roll over with regard to bdc. They keep changing the goal posts and we keep accepting them. They are a booking service. They do not clean my property. They do not deserve a cut of that action. Just sayin’
I appreciate the feedback. CGC
I truly believe that adding 15% will be met with anger by potential guests and yet if I don't increase it, I'm out of pocket. I pay my whole fee to the cleaner.
Yes. That's the gist of it.
Ohhhhh. France. How lovely! I'm in Australia and I rent out a few rooms in my home in order to help meet mortgage payments.
I do get the majority of my bookings from booking.com but I wonder would that change if I dropped them. I have friends who are only on Airbnb and they seem to get as many bookings as me, so maybe it's worth a try (scary - but it seems I am constantly disappointed in BDC).
And I do believe it's illegal to charge for a service they do not perform, so I will be contacting my country's ACCC - just to see if that's the case.
Lovely to chat with you (this is my first 'hub' experience). Take care.
Though I have to say Janefryer, it leaves such a bad taste in my mouth that I may reconsider if booking.com.is the engine for me. I actually also think it's illegal!!!
