The Plum Guide allows you to import calendars from other websites that support the 'iCal' format, as well as export its own iCal link.

 

iCal is a file format that allows users to create and share electronic calendars. iCal enables you to have a single-calendar view for all your bookings and more.


Before you start to sync your calendars, ensure that you are logged into both your Airbnb account and The Plum Guide account. Have each website open on separate tabs in your web browser.

 

If you wish to import your Airbnb calendar to The Plum Guide you should follow these steps;

    1. Click your name in the top-right corner of the Airbnb website
    2. Select 'Host'
    3. Select 'Manage Listings' in the dropdown menu
    4. For the listing you want to edit, click 'Calendar and More'
    5. Click 'Availability settings' on the top-right hand corner of your calendar view
    6. Under 'Sync Calendars' (at the bottom of the menu), select 'Export calendar'
    7. You can now paste your Airbnb calendar link into the 'URL' section (note you can also import your calendar link on 'Your listings' when you are logged into your host account).
    8. Give this calendar an easily recognisable name so you do not confuse it with any other calendar

    If you wish to export your Plum Guide calendar to Airbnb you should follow these steps;

    If you are exporting your calendar link for the first time, you can select 'Export your Plum calendar' to get your Plum Guide iCal link, in the 'Sync your Calendar' section. Copy the link, then go to step 5 to find out how you can upload it to Airbnb. If your listing has already been published follow all of the steps below.

    1. Hover over 'Host' on the top right menu bar, when you are logged into your Plum Guide account
    2. Select 'Your listing'
    3. Click 'Export Calendar' at the bottom of the page
    4. Copy the link that appears
    5. Go to the 'Availability settings' on the top right hand corner of your Airbnb page (follow the instructions above to show you how to get here)
    6. Under 'Sync Calendars' (at the bottom of the menu), select 'Import calendar'
    7. Paste your Plum Guide calendar link into the 'Calendar Address (URL) text box'
    8. Give this calendar an easily recognisable name so you do not confuse it with any other calendar
    9. Select 'Import Calendar'.

    PLEASE NOTE - You will need an individual iCal link for each external calendar you have on other platforms. For example, if you have the property you list on The Plum Guide, also on Airbnb, HomeAway and HouseTrip you will have to repeat the process three times to ensure your calendar's are fully synced. If you have any problems uploading your calendar, please email hosts@plumguide.com.
