Be Aware of Booking Fees on VRBO, HomeAway &

During this past February the vacation rental companies of VRBO, HomeAway and Vacation Rentals implemented a “traveler fee” to reservations booked from their websites. These booking fees vary from 4%-10% of the total value of the rental booking not to exceed $499. This can make a significant difference in the price of your vacation and in some instances, whether you can afford to even go.


We encourage you to book properties through individual websites such as our properties at You won’t find any additional fees such as a traveler fee being tacked onto the price of your rental when you purchase through us.


Although we cannot control this separate charge by VRBO, HomeAway and others, we can assure you that if you book with us at Padre Getaways by phone or on our website at you will never be charged this service fee.
