 Booking Fees - How it works


Here’s how we’re helping our Hosts feel confident in welcoming Guests:


  • We don’t charge Guests
  • Listing with us is free
  • We don’t require booking fees as you have alternatives:
  • Option 1: We subtract a 10% booking fees from the price advertised. There are no other fees and no VAT payable.
  • Option 2: You can opt for a 1000 ZAR / 80 USD annual fee and then everything else is free. In addition we will provide you with a free Want2Stay email address, for example tania.green@want2stay.com   (With you 1st Booking you will be required to choose)
  • It’s your place, your rules – Your Choose your Prices, Policies, and Rules for Guests
  • We’ve got your back – Access to 24/7 support and guest misconduct reporting
  • Find your perfect match – Set requirements and criteria guests must fulfill
  • BEST of All! You can use your listing’s link to advertise across social media, because you do not pay booking fees. And, it gives your posts credibility! Amazing!


How it works

Open and close your property when you want:

We give you the freedom to open or close your property on our site whenever you want. With no lock-in contracts, you’re in control of your property.

You control your availability: 

Only accept guests during the summer or maybe just weekends, at want2stay.com you decide when you want visitors / guests.

We don’t charge guests: 

We don’t add anything onto the advertised price. Unlike other platforms which often charge guests, the price you set is the price we display.

Use Want2Stay alongside other platforms:

Using Want2Stay alongside your other relationships is not a problem. With our simple calendar you can manage your availability in parallel to your existing relationships
