No Service Fees! Air BnB and Homeaway charge them - WE DON'T!
Book Direct and Save!

Why pay twice the booking fees?

In the current era of online travel agencies, the consumer (you!) continues to be overcharged with redundant fees. If you found out you were going to be charged a service fee for just a simple night in a hotel, you would likely say forget it!! It just feels like a money grab, doesn't it?

>With this in mind, why pay an additional booking fee to an online site that hasn't really done anything for you? Book directly with EMR Vacation Rentals and receive superior customer service from helpful agents and greeters! Below is a comparison of "their" fees vs. ours! Book directly with us and save!

  • Homeaway / VRBO Service Fee Recently Increased from 4 to 9% to 5 to 12%
  • Flipkey charges all renters a booking fee of 5-15% of the rental rate
  • Homeaway adds a 5-12% traveler service fee for all online bookings
  • AirBnB charges travelers a 6-12% guest fee for all bookings

The values below are an example of the service fees levied by the online travel agencies. We have not included taxes (if applicable) and cleaning fees. In some cases the service fee levied by the 3rd party booking agent would be even higher as it is calculated on top of the cleaning fees levied.
