I was reviewing my calendar for the month of June and I have availability from the 13th to the 20th, but when I look at my calendar from the travellers perspective it will only allow me to book the 13th to the 17th, shorting the days 18 and 19.
Is there something obvious that I’m missing? It’s late here and I just don’t get it.
Well, blonde girl is checking in on the 10th and out on the 13th, so that’s the reason for that one. Maybe you have two-day in holding for the others? ABB holds dates while people verify but doesn’t tell hosts via the calendar, which is maddening but it happens.
I found this problem on my calendar. Then I discovered that because I had put minimum 3 nights Airbnb were blocking out dates that people couldn’t book as a Start date. But this then meant that the calendar wasn’t showing all the dates that were available correctly. It is counterintuitive for any guests looking/ browsing. So I switched back to no minimum night requirement and - hey presto- the calendar now correctly shows what dates are actually available.
@Theresa_Duthie-Jacks I did that but then I was getting 1 night bookings, which I don’t want. My cleaning fee would have to be astronomical to accommodate that. One girl I allowed and she cooked dinner for her and her boyfriend. She used every pot, pan and dish, fried stuff without turning the exhaust on, and didn’t clean up after herself.
