Synchronize Vrbo and Houfy calendars
There are 2 ways to synchronize Vrbo and Houfy calendars. The first one is by exchanging ical files through the 2 channels and the other one is by using a channel manager like Syncbnb. Let’s see both options extensively:

✔️ Exchange ical files

The process is easy and free of charge. The only downside is that the synchronization through direct ical has 2-4 hour delays at minimum. That means a high possibility to have double bookings. Here’s a step by step guide:

1️⃣ Copy ical URL from Vrbo

Login to Vrbo -> Click on the profile menu -> Select ‘Owner Dashboard’ -> Select property  -> Calendars -> Reservations -> Click on the ‘Import/export‘ -> Export Calendar -> Copy URL

2️⃣ Paste it on Houfy

Login to Houfy -> Click on the profile menu on the top right -> Manage Listings -> Click Calendar for the listing you want to import -> Import -> Paste URL

3️⃣ Copy ical URL from Houfy

Login to Houfy -> Click on the profile menu on the top right -> Manage Listings -> Click Calendar for the listing you want to export -> Export -> Copy the first URL

4️⃣ Paste it on Vrbo

Login to Vrbo -> Click on the profile menu -> Select ‘Owner Dashboard’ -> Select property  -> Calendars -> Reservations -> Click on the ‘Import/export‘ -> 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 Syncbnb. Syncbnb will update all your calendars near real time. The price is 15$ per month, per rental including features like expense management, charts & reports, 24/7 support, unlimited active channels, and much more.
