@RiverRock Looks like I’ll never do instant booking again on Airbnb, might enable it on VRBO, maybe.
53 minutes on the phone with what Airbnb calls superhost support. That’s after wasting an hour trying to figure out why Airbnb isn’t importing.
Both Airbnb and VRBO export fine to my Google calendar, but Airbnb doesn’t import.
So I made the dreaded call, not much hold time, but then the torture started.
I thought I’d start with something easy, removing a 2nd listing that I had started to set up years ago, before Airbnb was so awful. I couldn’t figure out how to delete it.
That turned into about half an hour of repeatedly being put on hold and eventually being told that there is NO way to delete a listing.
So, on to the syncing. I made the mistake of mentioning that I can’t turn on instant booking because it’s not showing my bookings from other platforms.
Again he put me on hold, and I finally realized he was trying to tell me how to turn on instant booking. He had a young voice, but it was like being in the Alzheimer’s ward.
He insisted that I never told him about the calendar import issue and that I needed to EXPORT (which works fine.)
I had to end that call, can only put up with so much stupidity.
And I still can’t block any days.
So I guess my only option is to deactivate my Airbnb account once I get more bookings again.
I’m so looking forward to that day, but want the many REVIEWS there to be live. I guess I can put a RIDICULOUS price on Airbnb and most people will find me on VRBO.
Yup, I think I just found the solution to my Airbnb problem.
– update: The 2nd listing disappeared, thankfully. IT people must have removed it.
