I'm already listed with VRBO, do I still need to load the minimum content in ResOnline in order to connect?
Yes, you are required to load the minimum content in your ResOnline console in order to connect. To check your VRBO compliance for the minimum content requirements, please click on ResOnline Distribution > Edit/ add listing (new listings ) or under the VRBO compliance tab (existing connections)
Can I just import rates and availability from ResOnline to my VRBO listings?
No, VRBO takes all content, inventory, and pricing from ResOnline. For more information click here.
Note: After you are integrated, ResOnline becomes the system of record for rates, calendars, listing content, and photos. Any listing content entered on the VRBO dashboard will be overwritten by the feed.
Can I use iCal and VRBO real-time on the same account?
Yes, you can use both VRBO iCal and VRBO real-time in the same Host account, however, they need to be used in separate listings. Once you have switched a listing to HomeAway real-time, your iCal connection will be automatically removed.
If you wish to go back to iCal you need to disable the real-time connection first and enable the iCal connection.
