Attractive commission scale:

  • 5% for individual bookings (aohostels.com) (medium to high shopping carts | popular with couples, families, friends for short weekend trips)
  • 2% for group bookings (aohostels.com) (high shopping carts | popular with groups of 10 persons or more, i.e. sports clubs, school trips, college courses, language camps, seminar groups, bachelor parties, etc.)
  • 8% on online shop orders (shop.aohostels.com) (medium to high shopping carts | lists all our voucher specials and merchandise)
On aohostels.com the guest – your user – pays super flexible:
  • Pre-payments can be done by choosing Giropay, direct debit, bitcoin, PayPal or credit card  called „Fix rate“. This way the guest always gets the cheapest price available online.
  • For payments at the front desk (upon arrival) the guest chooses "flex rate" . The overnight stay will be paid on-site.

Restrictions - thanks for your understanding:
  • For cashbackers and meta-networks, A&O's fix rate is the only accepted payment option. Voucher and bargain portals are checked in advance.
    We are happy to work with you – let’s get in touch to discuss the best possible (lowest) cancellation strategy.
