Babaracine price model is simple. We charge a small fee to clients to help cover the costs of the products and services we provide, like 24/7 customer support, technology development, coordination between guests and hosts. We charge a service fee when a booking is confirmed.

Fees for booking a place to stay

We have two different service fee structures for booking a place to stay: a shared host and guest fee:

Guest service fee

This fee is typically under 3.5% of the booking subtotal (the nightly rate plus cleaning fee and additional guest fee, if applicable, but excluding Babaracine fees and taxes). The fee varies based on a variety of booking factors and is displayed to guests during checkout before they book a reservation. Guests booking a listing located in Mainland China do not need to pay a guest service fee.

If Babaracine is required to collect VAT, the service fee and VAT amounts will be combined on the checkout page, which could make the service fee appear to be higher.

Host service fee

This fee is 3% for most hosts but may be higher for Babaracine hosts who need more help such help with condonation, listing and management of the booking. This fee is calculated from the booking subtotal (the nightly rate plus cleaning fee and additional guest fee, if applicable, but excluding Babaracine fees and taxes) and is automatically deducted from the host payout.

To review the service fee charged for a particular booking:

  1. Go to your profile settings on the website or mobile app and Transaction history on Babaracine.com
  2. Next to the reservation that you want to review, select the reservation code
  3. Under Payout, you'll find the Babaracine Service Fee

VAT charges on service fees

Depending on the laws of the jurisdiction involved tax rate varies, VAT or TVA may be charged on top of the host and guest service fee. We recommend to our host to include tax rate on their listing so, whenever applicable the tax will be including in fill bill. Some hosts preference to collect these fees at check-in. So, please read the details of the listing or send message to host before arrival.
