💡 Note: You cannot make changes to any imported booking in Lodgify, so to edit the booking you must log directly into your account, i.e. Airbnb

iCal vs. Channel Manager

In cases like Airbnb or Booking.com where you can choose between a standard ical integration or a special integration via the Channel Manager we always recommend to use the Channel Manager. Only in case that Lodgify is not used as your central reservation system you might prefer to just synchronize your calendars via iCal.
