The booking fee is calculated against the total hire cost at 15% for hirers and 5% for owners so here is an example:

What the hirer will see:

10 nights x $100 per night = $1000 hire cost

Service fee $40 - this will go directly to the owner to cover basic costs, gas bottle top up etc.

Booking fee $150

Total cost $1190

What the owner will see:

10 nights x $100 = $1000

Service fee $40

Less booking fee $50

$990 will get paid to the owner (less any insurance costs)
