• Customer service and reservations support
• Credit card fees
• Maintenance and management of your home’s listing on Airbnb, Vrbo, & more
• Reservation risk management

Cleaning fee: A cost related to our expense incurred in cleaning the home between guests. This includes local, professional housekeeping, complete with enhanced cleaning measures.

Hot tub fee: Guests love to book homes with hot tubs, so Dubai Vacation Homes’ professional staff and contractor service are there to maintain them using supplies and chemicals.

Pet fee: Should you allow dog owners to visit with their pets, we charge an extra per-night fee to ensure that your home is clean and ready for the next arrival.

Damage waiver fee: A small fee ($35/booking, depending on the size of the home) in most markets** that covers accidental damage up to $5,000—excluding damage caused by smoking, pets, or criminal activity—as long as guests report the damage during their reservation.

To capture maximum revenue for every home, we also make our properties available through third-party channels (such as Airbnb, Booking.com, etc.), some of which charge an incremental fee to guests.

Vacation rental management fees in Dubai

Most frequent questions and answers

While you can anticipate management rates of anywhere between 15% and 25% of your revenue, keep in mind that not all vacation rental managers have the same services—or charge for them in the same way.
When shopping for vacation rental management, anticipate “you get what you pay for” to apply. If management rates seem surprisingly low, there’s a likelihood that the deficit is being made up for elsewhere, or the services are not comprehensive. The best way to know for sure what services you are getting from a manager? Ask them.

The best way to make the most of your vacation home is by renting it to vacationers. And the simplest way to rent it is by trusting a full-service vacation rental manager (like Dubai Vacation Homes) to cover the booking, marketing, housekeeping, and more.
Some people enjoy doing the entire process themselves. But they’ll also be the first to tell you it’s a 24/7 job. So, as you consider hiring a vacation rental manager, think about your lifestyle, your future plans, and your present obligations. Then, consider how those factors might impact your vacation rental goals.
Should you find that a full-service manager sounds like your best bet, connect with us your expert to talk. We’ll show you how we can maximize your earnings while minimizing interruptions to your daily life—and give you an estimate of your home’s revenue potential.

Unfortunately, there’s no definitive answer to the question “Which vacation rental manager has the lowest fees?” It’s like comparing apples and oranges: not all vacation rental managers provide the same services or can deliver on tasks like marketing your home at the same level of success.
While you’ll find that most vacation rental managers charge between 15% and 25% of your revenue, the level of management, your profits, and the type of additional fees vary. Sometimes, paying a slightly higher management fee can mean better outcomes than hiring a marketing-only manager or a fils-and-dirham discount service.
So, to find a reasonable management rate, it’s best to shop around and get a sense of what you need first before going with what at first glance seems to be the lowest fee.
