I'm a noob and testing my calendar integration with Airbnb API.
I'd like to disallow check-ins on Saturdays, as it 'splits' the weekend. I see how to set Arrival Restrictions, but in Airbnb it makes it look like every Saturday is booked/unavailable (even though in actuality you can book over the 'unavailable' Saturdays).
1) is there a way around this? ie a way to show Saturday as available but NOT allow Saturday as the check-in day?
2) anyone have the 'no-check-in-Saturday' rule, and if you've operated it for a while, any impact on people booking your weekends?
I totally agree with you! AirBnB's display is not good. Interested to see if anyone has a work-around because it's not helpful.
I'm not aware of any workaround if you want the day restrictions -- that just seems to be an artifact of how they display them. I agree -- it's extremely confusing... to the point that while we were developing the API integration we thought we had a bug doing extra blocks. Then we realized that we were sending the right data, it's just a strange display they do on the calendar picker.
Two years later, I'm wondering if you've identified a workaround.
I don't mind a Saturday check-in if they're staying for more than one night.
Using pricelabs, we allow 1-day bookings when booking within 5 days. It'd be great if I could exclude a Saturday to Sunday only. Although, the other side of me feels one day is better than no days, given the choice...
