Just curious really. I have seen what looks to be an excellent place and the rates are only 12 a day. To be honest I thought it'd be a lot more than that. Especially the place I am referring to which really does look to be 5*

I am sure at holiday hutches I only pay 3.50 per rabbit per night. Its 5 for a pair in same hutch. Its not 5* by any means but they get a 6ft hutch, daily time out in a run and Lyn is brilliant at medicating Snowdrop.

I think it depends on what you get and location but between 5-15 a night

My boarder charges 5 for a single and 2.50 for each additional rabbit.

The hutch and run system they had was huge.

I don't board but if people ask me to pet sit (not family and friends) I charge 5 per day, per animal. Boarding around here can be anywhere from 2.50 a day to about 10

I charge 3 for a single 5 for a pair and after that an extra 1 per bunny.

I pay 9.50 per day for two rabbits sharing, worth every penny.

I was expecting the average rate to be about 15 per day and that the place I saw online today to be at least 20 a day.

Do you take out some sort of Insurance if you do Boarding ?

I am NOT thinking of doing Boarding myself, god no that would mean having to deal with people :shock: I am just being nosy :oops: Very unlike me really !! :lol:

I pay 10 per night for my trio, all inclusive :D that's for an 8ft hutch I think.

Round here you can pay between 6 a day for a pair sharing a 6ft hutch to 10 a day for a shed/larger pen. I would normally expect to pay 7-12 a day for a bonded pair depending on what was offered.

The biggest issue for me is that I tend to go away for just one or two nights and as you get charged for each part day, it can really bump up the cost for a short break.

I pay 16 per night for 2 bunnies sharing a massive indoor pen and 9 per night for 3 piggies in a 6ft hutch. It's not cheap but the level of care is second to none and it's fairly close to home so I consider it money well spent.

There was another thread on here about boarding costs not long ago and I think a lot of people seem like they are under charging tbh. 10-20 per night for a pair seems about right to me, depending on location and accommodation offered. When you consider the time a pair of rabbits take daily, even with the bare minimum care and the cost of food, insurance, accommodation etc as well as the time it would take to properly clean and sanitise accommodation at the end of each day, I can't see how anyone can actually make any money charging less than that.
