Afraid I have done that and it is still happening. Screenshot below shows when I added it last night and it synched, nothing today.
Not much support from Booking.com support staff.
"I am sorry to hear that the synching of your Airbnb and Booking.com calendars is not working as it should be.We always aim to provide a seamless experience for our partners. However, we take no responsibility of overbookings caused by a delay in the synching of the calendars. Please bear in mind that the synching of the calendars is a free service, but it does not work as a Channel Manager.If you would like to avoid overbookings, we suggest setting your Airbnb to booking upon request, and always manually check whether you have availability. Alternatively, consider getting a channel manager."
I have the same problem, I have VRBO and Trip Advisor calendars pulling data into Booking.com but AirBNB will only work when you add it. This previously worked but has stopped. I have tried removing the airbnb calendar and adding it and it only pulls the data at the moment of adding, it does not synch periodically.
This is a major problem as Booking.com holds the hosts accountable for double bookings and you are responsible for the costs of alternate accommodation for your guests if you cannot host them.
