Exporting to VRBO

We currently have SyncBnb as a synced calendar, and are switching to OwnerRez. It appears that VRBO has a limit as to how many calendars can actually be synced back in. Or am I missing something?

We have five properties, and each will need to be exported from Ownerrez, into VRBO individually.

You'd normally need one iCal import from Vrbo into OwnerRez, and then one iCal export from OwnerRez back into Vrbo. So that should be fine:

Anyway, we recommend using our API connections in favor of iCals, because they are much faster, bring over much more data, and are more reliable. Once you have the API working you won't need iCals at all for Vrbo.

Thank you. I have reviewed that but, when I go to Calendar/Export, I am only given the option of a separate link for each property.

Yes, that's correct - one iCal link can only contain the data for one property.

Then that is the issue. VRBO is only allowing five synced calendars and syncBNB has one, and I have five properties.

No, that shouldn't be the problem - Vrbo allows only 5 calendars *per property*, but you shouldn't need more than one per each property.
