Interesting, my family is trying to book a trip to Breckenridge. Rates for a property are $1700 for our stay, then another $1000 in fees/taxes. This is $250 in tax, $130 in fees (insurance), $250 VRBO's fee, $350 cleaning fee. Now - this is all fine, and I explain this to folks all the time, but at the end of the day, I would like to see the platforms do $/Night based on all in figures, expecially when fees are 1/3 of the total cost.
Then.... I look at the properties I work with, and we are even worse. That is becuase we are highly weekend rental in offseason, so the week day rate is low, but weekend rates are much higher. This creates frustration when folks are scrolling without dates.
Anyone thoughts on this?
