Booking.com killing the small guys as they continu to increase their fees & commission rates!
Owner of a small holiday home in Wexford with a lot of overheads I'm really struggling with Booking.com increasing their fees and commission rates plus the Genius program that I have accepted to be part of which means I'm really getting less!
Booking takes payment for me - I am now paying a fee for that!
Now I've received notification that from September 1st they will be taking commission on any extras charges such as cleaning fees, great news! I charge 50.00 cleaning fee per stay but I actually pay my caretakers 100.00 euros for each changeover
These increases along with Genius customers are starting to kill me! It is a lot of work and at the end of the day when I have finished paying my tax to the revenue commissioner I have very little left
Maybe Booking.com is not made for a small guy like me
