Guide for using both Airbnb and VRBO with PriceLabs

Please follow these steps to set up your PriceLabs account for using both Airbnb and VRBO.

Step 1: Import your listings from Airbnb by following the steps here- How to Integrate PriceLabs with Airbnb

Step 2: Import your listings from VRBO by following the steps here - How to Integrate PriceLabs with Vrbo

Step 3: We do not manage your availabilities in PriceLabs. If you are not already syncing your availabilities, you can sync your Airbnb and VRBO calendars using iCal by following the steps here - Using iCal to sync your Airbnb and VRBO calendars

Step 4: Since it is the same listing on different two channels, you can use our mapping feature to map your Airbnb and VRBO properties together. This helps maintain rate parity and avoids you getting double charged. Detailed steps here - Mapping Listings Between Channels
Video recording of these steps can be found here.

Step 5: If you would like rates going to your channels to be slightly different, you can use our pricing offsets to accomplish that! This way listings can remain mapped so that they're easier to manage on PriceLabs, but show slightly different rates on each channel. This customization is best set at the account level, so the same adjustment applies to all listings for that connection. Steps on how to do that are here - Pricing Offsets for Mapped Listings
