Connecting Vrbo to Guesty: Overview (Pro and Lite users)

Connecting Vrbo account and listings

Pro users Lite users

Connecting your Vrbo account to Guesty to efficiently manage your Vrbo properties. Vrbo distinguishes three different scenarios in which users can connect their Vrbo account and listings to Guesty. In order to connect your Vrbo account to Guesty, you must first identify which connection type applies to you. Read more about the connection types below.

Note:

You can connect more than one Vrbo account with your Guesty account. Each account added in Guesty under the Vrbo integration page represents a single Vrbo account.

1. No Vrbo account

If you do not have a Vrbo account, follow these instructions to create one and connect it to Guesty.

2. Have Vrbo account, managed in Vrbo

If you already have a Vrbo account that is being managed through Vrbo, follow these instructions to initiate a direct connection through Guesty and manage your preexisting Vrbo reservations to avoid double bookings.

3. Have Vrbo account, managed through a different PMS

If you already have a Vrbo account that is being managed through another PMS or a channel manager, follow these instructions to initiate a direct connection through Guesty and manage your preexisting Vrbo reservations to avoid double bookings.

Find your Advertiser ID

The Advertiser ID is an identifier assigned to each Vrbo account connected to Guesty. Vrbo also refers to this as a "User ID", "Vrbo ID", or "PMSC ID" (Property Management Software Company ID.) Be prepared to provide this to Vrbo by locating your Advertiser ID in Guesty.

Managing listing settings after connecting

Pro users Lite users

Once the account is connected and your listings have been published, you can update a listing's settings individually in Guesty. See these article Connecting Vrbo to Guesty: Explained and Managing Vrbo listing settings for full details.

Publishing or linking additional Vrbo listings

Pro users Lite users

Create a single-unit listing in your Guesty account and publish it to Vrbo.

Publishing multi-unit in Vrbo is not yet supported. If you want to publish a multi-unit, create a multi-unit listing in your Guesty account and publish each sub-unit as a separate listing to make sure the listing's availability is reflected correctly in Vrbo.

Important:

You can only publish one listing at a time.

Disconnecting Vrbo

Reconnecting Vrbo

Pro users Lite users

  • Once a listing disconnected, Guesty will no longer sync the listing's content, calendar, receive reservations and messages from Vrbo. If you would like to publish the listing again, you have two options:
    • Reconnecting the listing again to the same account: You must contact Vrbo Support directly.
    • Reconnecting the listing on a different account or to a newly created account: Publish as per the above process.
  • Reconnecting an account is not supported, we recommend to simply create a new account.

Adding a booking channel link to your Vrbo listing in Guesty (Pro only)

If a booking channel's listing page link is missing from Guesty, you can add it manually to the listing's page to be able to access it from Guesty.
