New booking.com commision rules from 01.09.2019

I just received email from booking. com saying that additional fees (cleaning, beddings...) will be included in the calculation of the commission from 01.09.2019.

So if you are paying your cleaner 30€ for cleaning of the apartment, and charge your guest for that amount, booking.com will now charge you for 15% of cleaners sallary. What's your oppinion about that? Are you going to increase and charge more for additional fees?

HI Blagoje

I received this notification along with a previous one some weeks back informing us that if Booking take payment from customers they will change us a fee

Booking's commission is the highest on the European market, now these charges along with customers part of the Genius program are killing us!

I rent out my home in Ireland, so I'm not a big business like a hotel, and honestly these increases are killing me

I charge 50.00 euros cleaning fee but pay my caretaker 100.00 euros so I am considering increasing cleaning fee to cover Booking's commission increase

Is this an initiative from Booking to get rid of us the small guys!?

Poor small guys let’s all stand up and try to do our best the way we only know...

Hospitality, personally kindness, personal service, kindness, thoughtfulness, understanding etc. are some of our weapons against the big guys!!!

Cheers!!!
