Guesty Lite users:

If you connected Vrbo after 19 Feb 2024, this action must be taken in Vrbo. If you connected prior to this date, follow the instructions below.

You can view a Vrbo listing's booking settings in Guesty at any time. Change the settings from instant booking to non-instant booking, and vice versa. The listing will be updated in Vrbo within 24 hours. Follow the instructions below.


Integrated property managers who use a property management platform such as Guesty cannot change a Vrbo listing's booking settings to Instant Booking for Early Requests.
