The emergence of websites that brought supply and demand together was a great development for both hosts and guests. These websites were widely used, and everything seemed to work perfectly. However, these companies experienced even more pressure from the side of investors. Therefore, the focus was no longer on the users, it was money, money and more money. At Musjroom we are constantly trying to find ways to ask for the lowest commission as possible when you book for great stays on our platform. The hosts could already list their space free of charge on Musjroom and did not pay any commission for a successful booking. This was often directly reflected in the lower rates the guest had to pay. But what about the commission for the guests? That's what this news feed is about.

Reduced commission rates for guests

The pandemic caused challenging times for the travel industry. Musjroom as everyone was also affected by this worldwide crisis. Fortunately, we continued to develop our product. This also resulted in us taking a deeper look at our commission rates. Therefore, we decided to make an important decision. The original commission rates for guests have been reduced from a fixed 19% for a successful booking, to a variable rate between 10.9% and 13.9%. The rates have been set in such a way that we can also be cheaper than competitors, while also be able to continue investing in support and our product. As a guest, you can expect the service you are used to, and you will keep more money when you make a successful booking. You can keep these savings yourself or spend it on other fun things during your stay.

We are very enthusiastic about this reduction and hope you are too!
