How It Works

It's very simple.

Look After Me is a trusted accommodation platform where guests can browse and securely pay for accommodation.

All prices are for accommodation services.

There are no hidden booking or cleaning fees that inflate the price. However there is a small bank fee (2.9%), that gets calculated at the time of purchase. 

 

So if a room price is listed at $100, it will show up as $102.90, on your credit card bill.

We pass $2.90 immediately to the bank, $90 to the homeowner, and keep $10 for our customer service and software support, as our transparent 10% comission, once we have delivered the service.

Pay securely

Once confirmed, you will be sent a link to pay using our secure payment gateway. We'll transfer your funds safely to our host once you have arrived. We recieve a 10% commission on all bookings (no other hidden cleaning, admin or booking fees). If you pay by credit card, a 2.9% fee is automatically added which we pass directly to the banking company.
