Greetings BrookAve - Thank goodness for people like you. I have had countless locally booked 'no shows' and there is no way of contacting people in Fiji to try to get paid when all Booking.com will provide you with is their mobile phone no. and the town or city or island - no address or other useful contact details.

Airbnb and Agoda are a joy to work with as they take the money up front and remit direct to my bank account. In Fiji on a successful check in I then have to remit Booking.com their commission which means I have to queue up the the Inland Revenue office to obtain and pay for a tax clearance to take to my bank (more queuing up at the teller) to send them their money. Its a crazy system and here locals know they can book and not turn up if their plans change and you have no way of tracking them down, but meantime of course my callander shows my cottage has been booked so other guests cannot book those dates.

I do not have credit card facilities to charge a guest on booking like the hotels and Booking.com wont even release to me their credit card details which they advise they have.

Thank you for your simple advice.

Sincerly

Tom Davis

Wow that tax system is crazy and out of touch with current times.

 

That agoda point you made where guests prepay agoda,  is that by default?

Booking.com are well aware of this requirement re. tax, in fact their commission invoices have a reminder notice that their bank requires a Fiji Inland Revenue stamp that advises the tax has been paid. Perhaps it is Booking.com that is crazy and out of touch with modern times in not following Airbnb's payment system!

Not sure what you mean about 'default' as far as my experience goes with Agoda they run the same system as Airbnb - works well for me as if guests choose the cheaper rate that is non-refundable I still get paid.

My last Booking.com guest was worth nearly $1,000.00 and 'no sho9wed' and I got zilch.

It is not worth the grind trying to work with Booking.com

Cheers, Tom
