All About Lodgify’s Airbnb channel manager

Lodgify’s Airbnb channel manager is an integrated tool that allows you to connect all your listings on Airbnb with your vacation rental property management software. By using a channel manager that works with Airbnb, all your bookings, calendars, and rates will be automatically synchronized with other top online travel agents like Vrbo, Booking.com and Expedia.

Our full two-way Airbnb API integration will prevent any double-bookings and will keep your reservations up-to-date at all times. Not only does this save a lot of time, but it also cancels out the chance for human error when managing your vacation rental property!

How to synchronize your Airbnb calendar

To sync your Airbnb calendar, all you have to do is fill out a simple online form provided by Lodgify and our connectivity team will combine all your data, bookings, and listings onto one platform.

Lodgify’s channel manager seamlessly integrates your Airbnb calendar with other top online travel agents onto one centralized dashboard. When you synchronize your Airbnb calendar, our API integration shares all your information (bookings, availabilities, rates, etc.) between Lodgify, Airbnb, and any external listing connected to our channel manager.

By using our Airbnb calendar sync, whenever you receive a booking on an external listing, the dates will be automatically blocked off on your Airbnb calendar. Instant and computerized synchronization means that errors such as overbooking or double bookings are far less likely to occur.

Why do you need an Airbnb channel manager?

An Airbnb channel manager can help you save time and increase bookings when managing your vacation rental business.

By using a two-way Airbnb API integration, you’ll be able to manage all your reservations from one place and save up to 20 hours of work a week. You’ll also reduce any human errors that might jeopardize your business. Because Airbnb charges a commission on bookings, you can also use our Airbnb channel manager to mark up rates and maximize your profit.
