Help & FAQs for owners

What is iCal and how do I use it?

What is iCal?

To help save you time and hassle, we have a feature that will automatically update your availability calendar. Using some fancy technology (called iCal), you can feed your availability from another website you advertise your property on, or your property management/online booking software, into your listing on our website.

How do I use iCal?

To get this set up, you first need the iCal feed from the other website, or other booking/property management system. Please email this to our team and we will do the rest!

How often is iCal updated?

Updates happen once every 24 hours. The updates put quite a strain on our servers, which is why we don't do them more often. However, if someone attempts to book your property on our website, we'll go off and do a quick update before they can proceed (without them noticing). If the iCal feed says you're booked already, we'll let them know the property can't be booked.

Can iCal feeds work the other way?

Yes. With our booking software, you can also feed your availability information out of our system using iCal, allowing you to update availability on other websites based on the information on our website.

Please let us know if this is of interest and we can provide you with the iCal feed for your property.
