How to tell which fees are legit and which aren’t

It appeared like the great summer time vacation rental for Ryan Smith and his relatives. For just $147 a night, they could delight in a 4-bed room cabin on Cannon Beach front in scenic northwest Oregon.

“We thought it was a wonderful deal,” states Smith, who owns a pest management company in Beaverton, Oregon.

But then Smith landed on the last reserving monitor of his reservation and uncovered a $300 cleaning charge. And then there was an occupancy fee of $12 for each human being, per working day. And a nondescript support charge. 

It all piled up. Smith refused to reserve the residence.

Right after a short respite all through the early times of the pandemic, holiday vacation rental service fees are back, and they are worse than ever.

It is a seller’s industry for summertime rentals. And while some expenses are legit, most are just intelligent strategies to enrich an owner. Now far more than ever, beware of these undesired extras ahead of and soon after your stop by.
