Sync your Airbnb calendar to other websites

If you host on other websites, you can sync all of your hosting calendars to prevent multiple guests from booking the same dates. For example, when a night is booked on one calendar, it’ll automatically block on the other—keeping your schedule up-to-date and making hosting administration a little easier.

    How blocked nights appear on your Airbnb and other calendars

    Nights that you block—or that are booked on Airbnb—will be blocked on the other website’s calendar. Your Airbnb calendar will include nights that are blocked for your availability settings, preparation time, advance notice, and minimum stays.

    Nights booked on another website’s calendar will be automatically blocked on Airbnb when you’ve connected them to your Airbnb calendar. However, nights that you block on another calendar may or may not be blocked on Airbnb.

    Refreshing a synced calendar

    Your Airbnb calendar automatically updates every 2 hours, and pulls in information from the other calendars you’ve connected. To check your latest availability sooner than 2 hours, you can go to your connected calendar and select Refresh.

    If you’ve connected multiple calendars, they may automatically update at different times. We’ll show the latest time that each calendar was updated, and you can manually refresh them as well.

    Note that we’re only able to request updates from the other website so many times—if you exceed that amount of updates, you’ll need to wait until the next automatic update.

    Refresh a calendar on desktop

    1. Click Calendar and select the listing calendar you want to change
    2. Click Availability
    3. Under Connect calendars, click Calendar import
    4. Choose your imported calendar (ex: VRBO) and click Refresh Calendar

    We import up to 2 years of data. You can’t pause an imported calendar. If you want to stop, then start back up and delete the calendar. To remove a synced calendar, click or tap Edit and Disconnect Calendar.
