Calendar & Reservation Sync

We will automatically import reservations from these channels and show them on your timeline and calendar. Keep in mind that the guest information which is shared in iCal links varies between different platforms. Guesty For Hosts shows all available information that can be acquired via iCal connection.

Calendar Sync

For the channels that are supported for calendar sync only, your reservations will be imported as blocked dates to your Guesty For Hosts calendar.

Guesty For Hosts syncs imported reservations via iCal approximately every 15 minutes. Data is exported from Guesty For Hosts immediately, however the time it takes to sync back to a linked channel depends on that specific channel.
