Availability calendar

If you don't manage your property's bookings with a real-time on-line booking system, but you do have a simple availability calendar, we can incorporate that within your listing. It will save guests telephoning or emailing you with simple availability enquiries.

We support availability calendars from the following organisations.

  • AirBnB (see below)
  • Availacal
  • Google Calendar (see below)
  • Home Away (see below)
  • Rental Calendars Direct (see below)
  • Renters Toolkit
  • Stayz
  • Wordpress (any calendar plugin that offers automatic iCal export)

The calendar is automatically updated from its source up to three times a day, depending on the type of calendar. This means you don't need to look after a separate calendar with us.

We can also support properties with multiple calendars - for example, if you have individual calendars for each unit in a group of apartments.

AirBnB

To allow us to view your calendar:

  • Log into your AirBnB account (via the website, not the app) and go to "manage listings"
  • Click "manage listing and calendar" for the required property
  • Click "availability settings" in the top right corner of the calendar view
  • Under "sync calendars" select "export calendar"
  • Copy the external calendar link and email it to us

The AirBnB external calendar link will look something like this:

https://www.airbnb.com.au/calendar/ical/1234567.ics?s=XXXX

The important part is "XXXX" - it will be a series of 32 letters and numbers.

Google Calendar

To allow us to view your calendar:

  • Log into your Google Calendar
  • Use the "gear" icon near the top right corner to select the menu item "Settings"
  • Along the left side of the page, locate the section "Settings for my calendars" and select the calendar you wish to use from the list
  • Select "Integrate calendar"
  • In the "Integrate calendar" section displayed on the right, locate the section "Secret address in iCal format" and email the link to us

The Google Calendar link will look something like this:

https://calendar.google.com/calendar/ical/XXXX%40gmail.com/private-XXXX/basic.ics

The important part is "XXXX" which is a series of 32 letters and numbers.

  • Locate the section at the bottom of the page titled "iCalendar URL (for exporting availability data to other applications)"
  • Copy the Rental Calendars Direct link and email it to us

The Rental Calendars Direct link will look something like this:

https://www.rentalcalendarsdirect.com/icalendar/XXXX.ics

The important part is "XXXX" - it will be a series of 5 or more numbers.

Other calendars

If you maintain a calendar with another organisation, let us know as we may be able to support including availability from that. We can work with any calendar that provides a live iCal export.
