Seasons - Check In/Out Allowed - Not "Date" Specific?

I was setting up a Season which requires bookings around the 4th of July to do a couple things - have a 4 night minimum and not check in or out on July 3rd, 4th or 5th. Looks like I can't set it and forget it because the "Day Restrictions" on whether check in/out is allowed will need to be changed each year. Is there a way to set DATE restrictions so the season would roll from year to year?

Also - once I set these seasons, which parts actually transfer to VRBO and ABB when I push rates?

Thanks!

I think yes you need to set each year as 4th would fall on different day of week.

Yep, for restrictions like that you'd need a season every year because the dates are different. What's the actual rule you're trying to set? Can't check in within 2 days of a holiday?

For the channel bridge rate push, it will push the rate and min nights.

For API integrations like Airbnb and booking.com, we'll push the allowed check in/out days as well.

Trying to make it so my cleaning folks don't have to work day before, day of and sometimes day after a holiday. So that would include check-in and check-out.

Still learning the terms: When you say "API integrations like AirBnB" does that mean for those who have 5 or more properties? Or do I get the benefit of pushing check in/out with just one rental?

THANKS!

API integration is just the general concept of that direct connection with a channel where we can manage everything via API.

HomeAway and TripAdvisor require 5 properties for API integration. Airbnb and booking.com don't have any minimums, so you can use those integrations with just one property. Airbnb API integration is in beta currently and will be released to everyone in a few weeks.
