Connect Lodgify to Airbnb via channel manager

We show you how to activate a Two-Way Integration between Lodgify and Airbnb.       

Connecting your Lodgify account with Airbnb will ensure that:

  1. The availabilities of your Airbnb listings are reflected in your Lodgify Calendar.
  2. Reservation details from Airbnb bookings are automatically imported into your Lodgify Reservation System.

💡Note: We recommend to use the Channel Manager to import reservations from Airbnb only if you use Lodgify as your central reservation system. If you are using another channel as your central reservation manager such as Airbnb or VRBO we recommend to use our Calendar Import / Export Tool to syncronize your Lodgify Calendar with Airbnb. See Export and import your calendar via ical.

  1. Go to your Menu and into Channel Manager. Click on Airbnb.
  2. A new slide-in window will open on the right. Click Enable.
  3. Open a new browser window and go to your Airbnb account. Then follow the instructions of this Airbnb artcile to find your airbnb iCal.
  4. Once you have found your Airbnb iCal, return to Lodgify, and clickk Add mapping.
  5. Paste Airbnb's iCal URL into the textbox, map it to the correct property and save.

💡Note: Only confirmed bookings are imported from Airbnb. All reservations imported from Airbnb via the Channel Manager appear like direct bookings in your Lodgify calendar (red color for booked).

Important:

In order to avoid double bookings and syncronize your Airbnb availability calendar with the bookings/closed periods from Lodgify you also need to export this information to Airbnb.

  1. Go to the Export Calendar section and copy the iCal link address  of the property which you would like to connect.
  2. Return to Airbnb and go to the Import Calendar section.
  3. Select your Airbnb property, paste the Lodgify iCal URL and give it the name Lodgify and press Import this calendar.

Your Lodgify account is now Two-Way Integrated with Airbnb.

💡Note: It can take a couple of hours until the calendars are synchronized.
