Agree - even fees both ways are a max of under 10%. Exchange rate movements could explain the rest, I'd probably just ask to see the fees they have actually been charged.

My thought is, they have transferred $ to - exchange rate is poor, then it's a business account and that's normally a 3% fee from memory plus the 30p.

So exchange rate and the regular fee, still doesn't add up.
And the owner advised that there were no issues with your stay?

That seems excessive. When I stopped renting last year it was 4% so doubt it has increased that much in such a short time. However, as previously mention, currency exchange may be contributing to some of the cost. Best to ask the owner for a breakdown of the fees deducted and then you will have your answer.

No problems with our stay, nothing deducted for any other reason. I have contacted him again, but he just says international fees on paypal are outrageous. I will try to avoid American owners in future and will certainly not pay anyone via paypal.

Did they return $200 instead of 200 maybe?

Just an update. The owner has contacted me today and stated there was an overcharge by paypal on the last transaction to me. He's not sure what happened, but has made another transfer to me today. I am only now around 13 down, which is fine, with fees and exchange rate differences. Thanks for the help everyone.
