Calender

Good morning,

I have two questions regarding the synchronization of my calendar. I synced my calendar with airbnb some time ago but I can't find where I set that anymore. I don't see the option "synchronize calendar" anywhere. (also not with Calendar / Prices & availability ') Where can I find it?

Question 2; How long does it take for the calendars to sync with each other? since it does not synchronize in real time. I have now had to manually block an airbnb reservation in my booking.com calendar. I would love to hear from you.

Kind regards, Chantal

Hi

Yes always manually block.

 

If your room type inventory count is >1, you can't do it, then instead you need a 3rd party channel manager. 

 

Such as syncbnb.com

Hi Chantal Simon,

 

Welcome to Booking.com! The sync calendars function will be under your Rates & Availability tab. If you do not see this option, it means that your calendar does not support the function. Your property must be 20 room types or less, and a maximum of 1 unit per room type. If you have two Queen Rooms for example, you may wish to separate each Queen Room into it's own room type so enable the sync function. The calendars will sync up automatically up to 3 times per day but you can also select the 'Sync now' function to prompt a sync.

 

Kind regards,

Shirley E.
