What are our service fees for guests?

These fees help us create a smoother-than-smooth guest experience—and cover extra cleaning to keep your home in top condition.

  • Booking fee: Common in the industry, this is a vacation rental management fee that allows us to continually invest in industry-leading tech and best-in-class service. Included in the Vacasa booking fee are:
    • Customer service and reservations support
    • Credit card fees
    • Maintenance and management of your home’s listing on Airbnb, Vrbo, and more
    • Reservation risk management
  • Cleaning fee: A cost related to our expense incurred in cleaning the home between guests. This includes local, professional housekeeping, complete with enhanced cleaning measures.
  • Pet fee: Should you allow dog owners to visit with their pets, we charge an extra per-night fee to ensure that your home is clean and ready for the next arrival.

To capture maximum revenue for every home, we also make our properties available through third-party channels (such as Airbnb,, etc.), some of which charge an incremental fee to guests.

How much does a Vacation Property management service cost?

On average, Airbnb management services costs 20% of the rate per night. On top of this are the fixed fees that will be added to each reservation and which are intended to cover the logistical costs. These fixed fees are generally passed on to the guests.
