How can I set preparation time?

Hi there,

Do you know how can I define some time between reservations? I need 1 day to prepare the apartament from the check-out to the next check-in, and I couldn't find anything in the Help Center site.

Thank you,

Hi Jaybeegee,

The suggested method does not cater the requirement. What you have suggested will perform "Guests may only check in on A date if they book at least X days in advance."

The requirement in the question is is for setting a Automated buffer blocking days between two bookings

Yes you are correct @Chanuka Jayasekara  - would setting the preparation time flag to say 1 day not achieve the same result that you will not have back to back bookings?

No, I'm sorry, I have the same question. Somebody can book a week in advance (which will cover the 'in advance booking) but their book date will start the day another client leaves. We can't be available 7/7 days at any hour to care for cleanliness in between reservations. At my place this takes 1,5-2 h!

Yes you are right - the advanced booking trip setting will not do the trick! I guess the only work around is that whenever you get a booking to manually block off some time.

AirBnB gives you the possibility to easily set preparation time- maybe Booking should do a little bench mark?

I was just searching for this and found that rentalbell.com has a preparation time feature that allows you to set this time with them and it will automatically block off the required days for all bookings for booking.com vrbo, airbnb etc.
