HomeAway / Vrbo Calendar Sync

Integrate your HomeAway / Vrbo listings with Lodgify’s channel manager to sync your calendars across all the top channels connected, such as Airbnb, Booking.com or Expedia. Our two-way synchronization will import your bookings, availabilities, rates and promotions automatically.

Whenever you receive a booking on an external listing, the dates will be automatically blocked off on your HomeAway / Vrbo calendars. Likewise, if you receive a reservation on HomeAway / Vrbo, all your external calendars will be blocked off for that period. Our channel manager will guarantee automatic hourly updates to show the most accurate availability and prevent double-bookings.
