Keybee Fees

Complete, transparent vacation rental management with a flat fee of just 9% of your NET rental income. No contracts, no commitments, no hidden fees.

Our Fees and how we work

Keybee's pricing structure is the most competitive and transparent in the market. We keep our pricing simple and fair. Most of our competitors charge a percentage fee on your gross (as opposed to net) income. Using gross income means that the fees are charged on top of the income you never receive, such as platform fees and cleaning fees. With Keybee, hosts pay a flat fee of just 9% of their NET rental income after subtracting platform and cleaning fees.

In addition, our pricing for cleaning is straightforward. Guest pays the cost of cleaning. We set Keybee's cleaning cost as a cleaning fee on each platform. The platform deposits the cleaning fee directly into your account, and we charge our credit card for the same amount. This way, you have complete control over income and costs but do not need to worry about scheduling turnovers and cleaning costs.

Some management companies keep your payouts and only transfer payments to you once a month after subtracting their fees. This means no transparency or control over income and fees. Before you sign up with the competitors, inquire if they keep your income. With Keybee, payments from hosting are always fast and secure since they come directly from the platform into your account.
