Fee examples



Please look at the examples very carefully.

Tourist tax per guest per night



Because a tourist tax doesn't need any user input we use a Statement field. Also make sure the Per day and Per guest options are selected.



Fixed end cleaning fee


A cleaning fee is usually a fixed fee that is added to the booking. So you can add it as Statement field. Make sure you do not select the Per day and Per guest.



Optional end cleaning fee


If the end cleaning is optional, you can add a Checkbox field for this, that can be checked or left unchecked. If checked, the fee will be applied to the booking.



Packages



If you offer various packages, options or additional things to top up your booking, you can use the Multiple-choice field to add them.



Deposits



You can charge deposits. You can set a deposit amount per field (that contains a fee) and / or use a fixed deposit for the whole booking.

Deposit per field


When you add a field that contains a fee, you can set a deposit amount for that field as well. In the example below you see a field with a fee of € 150,00. The deposit for this field is set to € 50,00. This means when a guest chooses this option, a fee of € 200 is added.



Taxes



If you want to charge VAT, GST, Sales tax or other taxes, you can set that up in Settings > Taxes. You can apply taxes to a field or the rent fee.

Tax per field



When you add a field that contains a fee, you can set the applied tax for that field as well. Open a field and add the Applicable tax.

Tax per rent



Open the booking form and click on Rent under Payable items. You can add the Applicable tax there.
