Yes customer support has confirmed there is a problem. I've had 2 double bookings during the last 2 days as a result of AirBnB calendar syncing issues and not being able to import properly. One calendar that didn't import in Chrome, did in Firefox, but then other calendars failed with both browsers. Go figure.
I downloaded the iCal file to prove the URL was valid.
It imports into Google Calendar just fine.
I think BDC just doesn't like it somehow.
I too get the error:
"This isn't a valid iCal URL - please try again."
when trying to import my exported AirBnB calendar. I have tried several times.
I have also pasted it to notepad and tried to copy it again from there, but same error.
When I paste into a browser, the iCal file is downloaded no problem.
So why is my import rejected?
This is exactly what I want to do - enable someone to book the whole house, which blocks each of the 5 rooms, or enable someone to book a room, which blocks out the whole house.
It's easy on AirBnB.
Why can't the biggest OTA in the world accomplish this simple task?
Support said I can only advertise the property one way or the other. But I don't want someone to book 1 room for £20 per night and then give them the whole house!
