FAQ - Export and import your calendar via iCal

If you receive bookings via your website as well as other booking platforms or use an external reservation system, you can export your Lodgify bookings to an external calendar, or, at the reverse, import reservations and blocked periods into Lodgify via iCal. ICals will allow you to share availabilities and some booking information from a platform to another.

Please note that when importing reservations from Airbnb via iCal, no guest details will be imported! You can also use the iCal link to block individual rooms in your calendar whenever you have a booking for the entire property, to do so please get in touch with us.

Import an external calendar to Lodgify

Importing will allow you to automatically keep your Lodgify calendar up to date with external calendars that support the .ics format.
Example of an iCal URL: https://www.airbnb.com/calendar/ical/2790429.ics?s=850a104a80c6c87f19cb5c0e35a97628.

This involves copying the iCal links from the platform and adding them to Lodgify. Calendars that support the iCal format include Airbnb, VRBO, OnlyApartments and House Trip.

💡 Note: The imported information will be visible in the Calendar in light gray. No information will be imported into your Reservations.

You can paste the platforms' links from the Settings section of your Lodgify account. The calendar auto-refreshes every 2h, but you can also manually import immediately.

💡 Notes:

  • Please note that VRBO/FeWO Ical update ONCE EVERY 24 HOURS
  • Only current and future bookings will be imported into your calendar. No bookings that lie in the past will be shown 

Export your Lodgify calendar

Then, paste these links to the platform's calendars like Airbnb, VRBO, Booking.com etc.
