Are they distributing the fees across however many nights someone is searching for and showing that on the map? For instance, if a place is 100/night with a 50 cleaning fee and someone searches for a 5 night stay, does that listing show as 110/night on the map?
I’m trying to figure how it is different than before. I’ve never been able to understand the complaints about the fees not being transparent because, like hotels, the nightly rate shows on the map but, unlike hotels, the total cost for the stay shows on the listings that you are scrolling through. It is hard to imagine that having a total cost for the stay with a breakdown of the fees is somehow not transparent. And it is more transparent than google hotel search because hotels are also going to add fees for parking, pets, resort use, but only show the nightly rate until you go through booking.
The only time that the total price and price breakdown are not shown for each listing when the guest has not yet entered any dates. For obvious reasons, a total price or even an accurate nightly price cannot be displayed without knowing the dates of the stay. With this new system, is it any different? How can they show a nightly price that includes the fees if they don’t know what dates the guest is looking for? So then there is no change. If a guest puts in dates, then they will be shown a total price with fees (a transparent price) but if a guest does not put in dates, they cannot be shown a real price (transparent price). It seems exactly the same to me. I’m confused.
For as long as I can remember, it shows like this if a guest puts in dates:
