To set your rental fees, there is no better method than espionage! Find out more about the proposed rates for renting gîtes similar to yours in your area. A rental price can only be fixed by taking supply and demand into account. When demand is high, prices increase…Competition is greater off-season and demands are less frequent; you will notice gîte owners lower their fees or close their gîtes. But you can also choose to rent your gîte by the month in low season. Any tenants that are interested are often retired and will take good care of your gîte.
Favour “all-inclusive” prices. Additional costs for cleaning, laundry, electricity, or firewood often scare off holidaymakers. It’s better to increase the price of the rent but ensure that all expenses are included.
Furthermore, charging for certain services may have consequences on taxes: the rental of furnished holiday homes does not allow one to charge for more than one additional service. Charging more than one service requires a subscription to the Chamber of Trade and Commerce and more complex tax returns.
In conclusion: make life easier for yourself and introduce an “all-inclusive” fee.
