“Adiós High Fees!” That’s not just our Rocky Point Direct slogan. It is the new online booking solution for Hosts of Puerto Peñasco rental properties like yours.
As Hosts, we know certain costs are a given. There are utilities, maintenance and repair costs, and for many of us, HOA dues.
But how about those high commissions from Airbnb, Booking, and VRBO? Or maybe property management fees? Those roughly 15 to 35% payoffs are brutal. And then of course, the charges our guests are forced to pay wind up working against us.
The realities of Rocky Point host fees are enough to give anyone high blood pressure. They too are silent killers.
Finally! Now there is a better option. Now you can save on finding and renting to guests. Teaming with Rocky Point Direct, we avoid making the Billion-dollar online booking giants any richer.
Good Hosts understand Guests. We know many of them are thinking it is us making a fortune on those high fees. But they don’t realize we’re paying fees, too.
We can fix all that. But before we dive into the solution, how about quickly peeking at some staggering statistics?
Did you know?…
Has a stock worth $192 a share (end of January 2021). It reported 2019 earnings of $4.8 Billion. The company’s current market cap is roughly $116 Billion. That’s the value of the company’s outstanding shares of stock.
How? Because Airbnb charges you and guests up to 24% in total fees!
The corporation has 7 Million-plus listings in over 100,000 cities besides Puerto Peñasco. Do you think Puerto Peñasco makes their A-List? Exactly.
A single share of Booking Holdings trades for $2030. (End of January 2021). Its books reported $15 Billion in 2019 revenue. The current market cap is over $83 Billion.
How? Because Booking.com Hosts can pay total fees as high as 28%! No wonder our guests shop around.
Booking.com has over 28 Million global listings. But how many of their execs from the Netherlands could have a clue where Puerto Peñasco is? Exactly.
This acronym stands for “Vacation Rentals by Owner.” But really, VRBO means high booking and service fees hurting you. The Austin-based company sold out to Expedia. It is now a big slice of why investors pay $128 a share for stock.
How? Because VRBO Guests pay fees as high as 23%! Rocky Point Host fees can boost the total up to 34%. Let’s stop the insanity, shall we?
This site takes reservations from 200 nations through its more than 2 Million listings. Is VRBO invested in Rocky Point like you? We’re thinkin’ PeñascNO.
So, how does Rocky Point Direct compare?
We’ll be direct. We charge hosts one low fee of 4.9 percent. No gimmicks or hidden fees. Plus, we can offer a lower credit card processing fee of just 2.9%. We collect. You get paid. Simple as that.
We must also be direct about the new reality with Mexican taxes. Hopefully you have heard. Mexico is now aggressively working on enforcing the Value Added Tax (VAT). If the government strong armed the powerful online travel giants into complying, us small fish better get with the program.
Here’s the bottom line with Rocky Point Direct. It adds no risk, just revenues.
You can get more bookings and more nights with us. You can even start charging less to attract more guests. Yet, you will still be making more profit.
That’s how big and bad the shark bites from the booking giants have gotten.
Advertising and Promoting Rocky Point Direct
We’ll be getting the word out so all guests know only Rocky Point Direct is putting cash back into their purse or pocket. Look at it this way, our reservations are basically getting them a free meal, sunset cruise, relaxing massage, (or even better…another night with you). Plus, together we are keeping money in the LOCAL community which all Hosts need to survive.
It gets better…
We came up with a plan for creating Guest loyalty to YOU.
Just enjoy choosing the option of becoming a participating property owner in our free RPD Rewards program. Now, there’s no good reason to try to steal future bookings. When guests provide you the revenue of 10 nights at your place (by staying themselves or referring all their family and friends), you reward them with 1 free night of your choosing. (You set the terms and conditions).
What Host wouldn’t like making 10 for 1?
There’s no blindly digging for gold like with the billionaire booking sites. We know having quality guests returning is the goal of every host. And now, also having them incentivized to recommend your property? Well, that is pure gold.
