The commission rate has changed on Airbnb.
The service fee (the Airbnb commission), directed only to the host and no longer shared between the latter and the holidaymaker comes into effect. This new fee is now set by default each time a person creates a new Airbnb account. Of course, existing accounts can also choose to activate it. This fee is only paid by the host, which means that guests no longer have to pay any additional fees on top of their reservation total.
Airbnb’s help page indicates that the minimum charge to the host starts at 14% and can increase up to 20%. In addition, a 2% fee may be added if the host has a super strict cancellation policy.
Airbnb thus aligns itself with other OTAs, such as Booking.com or others that already practice this system.
This is good news for you, as it becomes clearer for holidaymakers. Indeed they pay the price that is displayed. This makes it easier for them to compare with your own rates on your website.
