Standard base rate management: where are Smoobu prices sent

June 18th, 2019 Posted by Landlord information 2 thoughts on “Standard base rate management: where are Smoobu prices sent”

You decided to manage your booking portals’ daily prices from Smoobu, very well. This will make it so much easier for you! First, you should verify that your standard rate (base rate) is connected to the booking portals. This applies to Agoda, Expedia and Booking.com. Click on Settings-> Booking portals-> Price synchronization.

Keep in mind that the prices that you enter in Smoobu will overwrite your current prices on the booking portals, replacing the standard base rates.

Make sure your standard base rate always refers to the same number of guests, in all booking po rtals.

Link Smoobu website with your own domain

Your own domain (URL)

Smoobu provides you with a tool that facilitates the creation of your website for your vacation rental properties. But maybe, you already have your own domain (URL) and want to use it to make your new Smoobu website as good as possible? Because let’s face it, sunsetapartments.com sounds better than sunsetapartments.bookingturbo.com. While it is not an “astronomical science” to build the link between your domain and the Smoobu website, it might be a little bit of a challenge.

Integrate external calendars: Outlook, Apple, Google, etc.

December 12th, 2018 Posted by Uncategorized 0 thoughts on “Integrate external calendars: Outlook, Apple, Google, etc.”

External calendars can be integrated via iCal links. We need to make a difference between booking portals – those that are not on our list of connected portals – and calendar programs such as Google Calendar, Outlook Calendar or Apple Calendar.

Smoobu calendar to integrate in external calendars

You may use, for example, your iPhone calendar to have an overview of all your appointments. You can integrate your Smoobu data there. You should bear in mind that the speed of the updates or the transmission of new events does not depend on us, but on the calendar programs. Normally these are updated at certain time intervals, sometimes daily. But it depends on each program.
