Tax and Fee Terms

There are three different options for the Terms of a tax or fee. We've outlined the differences between the Per Person, the Per Booking, and the Percentage tax or fees below.


Per Person Tax or Fee

This is a fee that is charged based on the number of guests in a booking. This can be set on a Per Trip or Per Day basis.

For example, let's say you have a"National Forest Permit fee"  of $45 per person. For a booking consisting of two guests, a "National Forest Permit fee" of $90 ($45 x 2 guests) will be applied to that booking. If the Per Day option is selected, it will apply the fee on a "per person, per day" basis for listings that are more than a day long.

For example, let's say you have a "National Forest Permit fee" of $45 per person per day. For a booking consisting of two guests for a listing that is two days in duration, a"National Forest Permit fee" of $180 ($45 x 2 guests x 2 days) will be applied to that booking.

 

Per Booking Tax or Fee

This is a fixed fee that is charged per booking irrespective of the number of guests.

For example, let's say you have a "Raft fee" of $25 per booking. For a booking consisting of 2 guests, a "Raft fee" of $25 will be charged for that booking. Even if you had 10 guests in that booking, the Raft fee of $25 will remain unchanged.

 

Percentage Tax or Fee

This is a dynamic fee that is based on the total dollar value of a booking. Unlike the previous two fees, this fee is configured as a percentage value.

For example, let's say you have a "State tax" fee of 10% configured. For a booking of two guests on a listing that costs $100 per person, a "State tax" of $20 ($200 x 10%) will be charged for that booking. If it were three guests, the State tax would be $30.

By default, the percentage fee is applied over the entire value of the booking. However, you can also choose to have the fee exclude the price of add-ons. Doing this will apply the fee only to the cost of the experience itself and not will not apply to any add-ons that the customer opts to purchase.

For example, let's say you have a "State tax" fee of 10% and select the "without add-ons" drop down option. For a booking of 2 guests on a listing that costs $100 per person with add-ons worth $50, the sub-total would come to $250 ($100 x 2 guests + $50 add-ons). The State tax however, would only be applied on $200 ($250 - $50 add-ons) and would come to $20.
