The Withlocals fee is a 32% fee charged directly to the guests from the final overall price of each booking. That covers our services provided to our local hosts, such as marketing services, support, portfolio management, etc. This transparent service 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) = EUR 100, including EUR 10 of guest expenses like food costs or entrance tickets.
Withlocals service fee of 32% = EUR 32
Amount you receive = EUR 68
The income you generate = EUR 58 (the amount you receive minus EUR 10 of guest expenses)
Withlocals keeps the right to adjust the % of the fee for marketing purposes such as launching campaigns and other promotions.
