When your calendars are synced across multiple platforms, you can view all your reservations, high-demand dates, and local events across all your calendars. This can help you increase performance by presenting opportunities to adjust your rates and prevent double-booking.

We support iCal, a file format you can use to import and sync calendars across multiple platforms like Google Calendar, Apple Calendar, and other booking site calendars.

You can also sync event-specific calendars from iCalShare. Go to www.icalshare.com and find the sports or holiday calendar you would like to add. Right-click on Subscribe to Calendar and copy the link address.

  2. Click Import Calendar
  3. Give the calendar a name
  4. Select a color to represent the calendar
  5. In the URL field, paste the calendar address.
  6. Change webcal:// to http:// in the URL

To export your reservation calendar

  1. In your reservation calendar, click the Import/Export arrows icon
  2. Click Export Calendar
  3. Copy the URL and follow the instructions on your external calendar in order to import

Non-blocking events
When you import a calendar with non-blocking events, you’ll get a message saying “Calendars imported from this site will not block availability.” Non-blocking events are not shown to travelers, and those dates can be booked.

If you want to block off dates on non-blocking calendars (important for bookings made on other calendars) you’ll need to manually create reservations or block dates to make sure travelers cannot book those dates.

Exporting tentative reservations
If you include tentative reservations when you export (by leaving the box checked), you will block those dates on the reservation calendar. If you have also set up an import from that calendar to your reservations calendar, you may experience issues with payments for those dates. You should only include tentative reservations when exporting to a private calendar, not to another booking site.
