Conversion fees on guest side

Hello,

 

AirBnb is not at all transparent as regards currencies.

 

When I book an apartement in Thailand, I first check the price in thai bahts then switch to euro, which is the currency of my bank account and credit card, when I book.

 

Does AirBnb charge conversion fees when I pay in euros ? No mention of it when I book with a price in euros.

 

I recently booked in Thailand and forgot to switch to euros, I will therefore be charged by my bank with 2,90 % conversion fees.

 

If AirBnb already includes conversion fees when I book in euros, may be it doesn't make much difference, but AirBnb is terrible as regards transparency.

 

I think they should ask for a confirmation when the booking currency is different from the default currency in my AirBnb account.

 

Thanks
