Feature request: please allow users to filter by TOTAL price —and— sort by TOTAL price. Also, you need to display the total price in the app as well as on the desktop searches. With fees varying so much, the listed price ends up meaning NOTHING anyway.
Recent True Life Example: I filter for a rate under $100 a night but many listings have fees that double or triple the total price. By using the price range feature I've unknowingly filtered out a stay with a nightly rate higher than $100 but no fees that would end up costing much less overall than others that are listed within my "price range."
Obviously, this feature would be N/A if a person had not yet selected a number of nights. An alternative solution would be to have the fees added to the nightly rate by default, then those fees would be divided up by the number of nights chosen. Because, either way, it would be a much more honest reflection of the cost.
AIRBNB—If you care about user experience at all, as I've heard from colleagues you do, please make this feature work more FOR users instead of AGAINST them. Also, you're rewarding hosts who try to game the system by setting artificially low rates with high fees and punishing those that are being straightforward with their prices.
Please upvote if you agree.
Yeah, this is a no-brainer, duhhhh we need this!!! I'm sick of having to scroll through hundreds of listings to see their total price in my budget!!!!
We've recently announced some changes aimed at improving the price transparency for guests - you can read more about it here:
The insane fees & cleaning charges added are exactly why we've returned to using hotels for the most part. My time is too valuable to spend opening a hundred listings and having to keep track of which ones have a reasonable total price. It makes price filtering absolutely pointless when they don't show the total nightly rate including fees.
Indeed. It must be a joke,
I'm looking for a stay under 100 euros per night, in Europe cleaning fees are 90euros and service fees are 60 ..... So eventually Airbnb lists 260e total
2 years later and still have to play this whack-a-mole game with fees in order to find a stay. This is why I rarely use this service anymore. Staying at a hotel doesn't have this headache.
This was a great post. Why, 2 years later, has it not been rectified?? I tried to search the listings, and I got widely different prices, only to find that I had to click on every single listing to find the actual price I would be paying.
YES!!! This is a little ridiculous. Since no fee is optional, who cares what the room price alone is? What you need to know is the total that will be charged on your account.
You should be able to choose entries depending on likes. I don;t consider places with a score below 4.2, as my experience has been terrible, but I have no way of selecting those.
This is really inconsiderate and I cannot think of a single reason why they do it.
As a guest (not host). This is irritating as hell. Every place you look at charges **bleep** near the same price for “cleaning fees” as the nightly rate. @Airbnb users don’t care what the break down of the price is. We care about the total price per night. Stop forcing these hosts into a position where they have to “compete” with other hosts by basically “falsifying” their listing and having to shift as much of the listing price into the “cleaning” fee.
Stop making the app feel **bleep**ty and less efficient for the users. Solve this by enabling a total price/ night search filter.
I have basically given up on Air BnB because of this. It seems to have become a bait and switch game when there is no way to search and select based on average nightly rate including one time fees.
Yes, PLEASE, filter by total price! by the time fees are added on the price can change sometimes quite dramatically and so much time gets wasted looking through
It’s disgusting to waste consumers’ time exploring listings while Airbnb flagrantly conceals the ACTUAL cost of accommodations, just to lure customers in. When this company’s greed leaves customers feeling burned, they won’t be foolish enough to return—I promise!
You may want to reach out to customer service directly. I received an answer related to clearing ones cache?
When is this feature coming? It has to be the #1 feature request of all time. Coming from a Product background, I know this would hurt your conversion rate in the short term, but the frustration it causes from a retention standpoint is insanely high. It makes your site incredibly frustrating.
