Airbnb calendar sync setup

In order to synchronize your calendars with Airbnb you will need to do the following per property within Kigo:

1. Click Edit and go to the Links & website embeds tab. Copy the Availability calendar feed URL.

2. In your Airbnb account, go to Calendar mappings and paste the URL. Now your availabilities are updated from Kigo to Airbnb.

    Does this sync both calendars together? Or do I need to sync the Airbnb calendar with Kigo as well? i.e, paste iCal link from Airbnb into Kigo (what is show on the video but vice-versa)

    Hi'

    It is not possible to import the calendar from AirBNB (as they do not provide a feed for this).
    From AirBNB you can only import bookings. This is done as shown in this article:

    Hi' Mirsad

    Unfortunately no. AirBNB does not allow this kind of data exchange.

    Hello, 

    As far as I understand it is possible to export Airbnb calendar 

    In Airbnb when in edit mode under the calendar it is written  : " You can also export the Airbnb calendar data into calendars that support the  format. Copy and paste this link into your calendar:

    So where to in Kigo we should pass this link from Airbnb ?????

    Actually I have been able to export the airbnb calendar in my wimdu, and flipkey account as these website allows us to. I do not understand why I have to enter all my airbnb reservations manually.

     

    Export Calendar

    You can also export the Airbnb calendar data into calendars that support the format. Copy and paste this link into your calendar:

    If I manually enter all the airbnb data as you are requesting, will it sync all future airbnb reservations, or do i always have to manually update kigo?

    Hi'

    Please note that the calendar sync goes from Kigo to AirBNB. AirBNB confirmed reservations are described here:
