If you’re thinking about turning your holiday home into a serious business or want to increase the number of bookings at your property, you may well have considered signing up to a holiday letting agency.

However, perhaps something that’s made you think twice are the commission fees taken in by holiday letting agencies – just one in your growing number of costs that come with running a holiday let. But what exactly can you expect to pay?

What is the average commission fee charged by holiday letting agencies?

Most agencies will charge between 15% – 25% commission per booking, depending on how competitive their rates are. However, not many of them will reveal these costs on their website so it’s worth contacting them for an exact figure.

It’s important to ask them what’s included in the feethey could be charging for property management, admin, key collection, etc. Can you pick and choose the services you want and adjust the service for a better price? See how flexible they are and how well they can attend to your specific needs.

How do holiday letting agencies work out commission?

The commission that holiday letting agencies take is almost always a percentage of the booking cost. They may also take more if you’ve opted for services managed by the agency like cleaning and maintenance. There may also be other hidden fees such as the ability to secure last-minute bookings, service charges, opting in and out of contracts, charging fees to your guests and so forth.
