Publishing or linking listings to your Vrbo account

 

Pro users Lite users

Once you connect a Vrbo account to Guesty, you can publish additional listings to the account at any time. Follow the instructions below or watch our video.

Before you begin

  • Vrbo account must be connected first before the listings will show as connected in Guesty.
  • Please note that it can take up to 72 hours for Vrbo to approve the listing. Once approved, its status will change to "Connected" on the Distribution Page within 48 hours.

    • See more information if the status of your listing is "Pending" or "Failed" for more than 72 hours.
  • Review the Checklist for Publishing Listings from Guesty to Vrbo to ensure that your listings will be published without any errors.
  • Guesty's connection with Vrbo does not support mulit-units. If a listing is set up as a multi-unit in Guesty, you must publish each individual sub-unit to Vrbo as separate listings, rather than only publishing the main unit. Publishing each sub-unit separately ensures that the listing's availability is reflected correctly in Vrbo.

  • If you have a default Pay Per Subscription (PPS) plan, you will need to pay for a subscription for the listing to become live.
  • If you do not have a default plan, the listing will be created under "Preview" and you will have to convert it to PPB or PPS.
