Hi Jason,

You can do that!

There is a box to check within each surcharge to categorize this as a 'rent' line item.

Then, you can go to Settings > Pricing Preferences and opt to roll all 'rent' line items into one on Widgets and Quotes.

An option to select "Blend" on a surcharge for bookings made on OwnerRez - Direct Booking sites that blend the surcharge into the nightly rate so it does not appear as a line item.

Is there a way to blend it with the cleaning fees for Airbnb? When I blend it for direct quotes it doesn’t show up but cleaning fees are still broken out on Airbnb….

No, Airbnb generally displays cleaning fees on their own, but combines all other fees into the overall rate.

But can we maybe categorize it as something else to trick the system? I tried with a few categories but it didn’t without. Maybe if we just don’t call it “cleaning fee”?

Airbnb is a bit particular about what Surcharges they'll allow. They'll only accept Surcharge descriptions that include one of their approved "magic words", as we jokingly call them here.
