The Withlocals fee is a 32% fee charged directly to the guests from the final overall price of each booking. This transparent fee is included in all the experiences offered on the platform, such as host offers (your own experiences), Withlocals Originals experiences, Live experiences, and personalized offers.
Here are some example calculations to help you understand how the fee works:
Total guest price (traveler paid price) = €110, including €10 of guest expenses like food costs or entrance tickets.
Withlocals fee of 32% = €32
Amount you receive = €68
Service fee of 10%: €10
The income you generate = €58 (the amount you receive minus EUR 10 of guest expenses)
As a host, you would like to receive €15. This €15 is 68% of the total price a guest has to pay (excl. service fee).
The total price (excl. service fee) would be calculated as (€15 / 68%) * 100% = €22.06 (22.058 rounded up).
This means the Withlocals fee amount is €22.06 - €15 = €7.06 (you can also calculate this as €22.06 * 32%, which will give the same result).
The service fee is 10% of the total price, which is 10% of €22.06 = €2.21.
The total price for the guest, including service fee, would then be €22.06 + €2.21 = €24.27.
Withlocals keeps the right to adjust the % of the fee for marketing purposes such as launching campaigns and other promotions.
