Guesty has 2 different ways to integrate directly to Airbnb: the standard and the upgraded integrations.
The upgraded integration was built to have improved stability and data consistency between Guesty and Airbnb.
While both integrations sync content, calendar, reservations and messages, the upgraded integration provides a more seamless experience, as data is constantly pushed and pulled in real time.
What are the differences?
Managing your listings will only be possible through Guesty’s software, while the listings dashboard in Airbnb will be blocked. This helps us to prevent discrepancies between the 2 platforms, since everything is done from Guesty!
At the moment, the new integration doesn’t allow you to manage reviews, but it’s in the works! In the meantime, it is still available on Airbnb’s website.
We are also working on the ability to send special offers directly from Guesty!
The upgraded Airbnb integration does not support iCal connection.
How do I tell which integration do I have?
How do I get upgraded?
Step 1: meet our criteria
To be a good fit for the upgraded integration, you have to meet the following criteria:
- Only instant-book listings.
- No listings in the following locations:
- New York, NY, USA
- Los Angeles, CA, USA
- Boston, MA, USA
- Portland, OR, USA
- Manchester, UK
- No Airbnb ‘Plus’ listings (temporary)
Step 2: apply for an upgrade
We are working on a seamless process, and are expecting to start upgrading existing clients starting Q3 2019.
If you are qualified and would like to be upgraded, apply for the new integration and we will reach out to you once we start upgrading existing accounts.
