Setting a listing’s "booking window" (how early guests can make a reservation)

When setting a listing's calendar as available by default, you can choose, in addition, a booking window: how far into the future guests can make a reservation. For example, if you set that guests can book reservations only 24 months before the reservation's check-in, they won't be able to book a reservation 36 months in advance.

About booking windows

The booking windows capability is for you to set up how many days in advance a guest can book a reservation.

Once you set up your booking window's time frame, the booking window will come into effect from midnight after it is set.

By default, it will be supported in the listing's calendar for the following 24 months.
After that two-year period, calendar dates will be subject to the booking window policies of the relevant booking channel.


Booking windows are updated in Airbnb as a calendar block.
For example, if you set a 90-day booking window in Guesty, the listing's calendar in Airbnb will be blocked accordingly — even though the listing's availability window in Airbnb still shows all future dates as available.
