Flipkey is Nothing short of TERRIBLE! They’ve sent the wrong kinds of guests to me nine times out of ten. I only had one good guest enquire on FK and he ended up moving over to Air when I wrote cryptic messages to him hinting the place that starts with A is a much better booking platform.
I think FK charges guests up to 15% versus Air’s 12. They also collect the entire deposit in cash and hold it for two weeks after check out. Their customer service is all based in India.
I keep my listing up because it does give publicity for my studio but if someone enquired I make sure they know what they are booking before I take their booking. I had a FK guest this summer walk off the property with 10 days on his reservation because it wasn’t his idea of Hawaii.
It’s so bad let me count the ways it’s bad. It should be called Flop Key.
