It’s true: the majority of large national vacation rental booking services tack on rental fees during the checkout process. These fees are typically not clearly disclosed while booking, and there’s no opportunity to accept or decline them. Instead, they’re included in the fine print that’s served up after a property has been selected by the consumer.
