It is not thoughtful. It is an admission of failure.
Synchronization should be real time and done by the system itself.
Booking.com has no excuse for not providing real time calendar synchronization. AirBnB has had it for years.
The partner program is amateurish.
I am beginning to think Booking.com is a total waste of time. I am an American owner of a Hungarian real estate company and our properties are top notch (4 interior design features) and are solidly booked on AirBnB (previously we were doing medium term rentals for Hollywood film staff in Budapest where many Hollywood films are produced). I have 3 properties listed on Booking.com and a grand total of 3 reservations in 90 days. It is a joke. The problem is that Booking.com buries my properties deep in their search results and my calendar quickly books solid due to strong AirBnB demand. So how in hell I am supposed to make this work? It will take a year or more to get enough reviews on each property to get a respectable position in the search results. Booking.com reminds me a bit of a former employer - AT@T. Totally incapable of tackling a new industry segment in which they are not already dominant. I appreciate the fact that Booking.com has introduced synchronized calendars, online payment, etc. But it is still hopeless.
