There are 2 ways to synchronize Airbnb and Tripadvisor calendars. The first one is by exchanging ical files through the 2 channels and the other one is by using a channel manager like Hosthub. Let’s see both options extensively:
✔️ Exchange ical
The process is easy and free of charge. The only downside is that the synchronization through direct ical has 2-4 hour delays at a minimum. That means a high possibility to have double bookings. Here ‘s a step by step guide:
1️⃣ Copy ical Url from Airbnb
Login to Airbnb -> Hospitality -> Calendar -> Select Property -> Availability settings -> Scroll until the section “Calendars Synchronization” -> Export calendar -> Copy URL
2️⃣ Paste it on Tripadvisor
Login to Tripadvisor-> Calendar -> Import -> Paste URL
3️⃣ Copy ical URL from Tripadvisor
Login to Tripadvisor -> Calendar -> Calendar -> Export -> Copy URL
4️⃣ Paste it on Airbnb
Login to Airbnb-> Hospitality -> Calendar -> Select property -> Availability settings -> Scroll until the section “Calendars synchronization” -> Import Calendar -> Paste URL
✔️ Use a channel manager
If you have a lot of bookings or you manage a lot of channels, the best solution is to use a channel manager like Hosthub. Hosthub will update all your calendars near real-time. The price is $19 per month, per rental including features like expense management charts & reports, 24/7 support, unlimited active channels, and much more.
