Special note: We improved our calendar syncing reliability in September 2020. If you set up your two-way sync before then, we've made changes to your Hipcamp calendar links which is why your status may read “IMPORT ONLY”. We recommend that you re-add your Hipcamp link to VRBO by following the below instructions to upgrade your syncing connection, reliability, and to unlock monitoring tools.
If you are hosting on multiple different booking platforms, it is very important that your calendars are synced to avoid double bookings. Having your calendars properly synced with each other can ensure that when you get a booking on one service, the dates will automatically be blocked on the other services. This provides a better experience for your Hipcamper and allows you to have some peace of mind!
Log into your Hipcamp account and visit your External Calendars page where you will be able to import and export iCAL/ics links to sync multiple calendars to Hipcamp and monitor your sync connections to make sure you have two-way sync connections set up correctly. You can navigate to the External Calendars page from your Dashboard homepage or from your Calendar under the Options tab. The above link will take you right there!
We officially support syncing with Airbnb, VRBO, HomeAway, and iCal, but other ICS/iCal links from other services are also likely to work.
