I need to turn off instant booking and get more screening for a property. I would like to do this for only one property. Can this be done?
I have found this for VRBO. I have not found how to do this for AirBNB.
I also have run into this issue in the past and so never switched to API. Is it possible? Some of our owners prefer to have us let them know of a request before accepting.
Or is it possible to do API connection for only some of the airbnb properties on the same account?
I just was reading the Airbnb website and found this:
Any listing that you create through your software is pre-set to Instant Book. If your software supports it, you can turn on a Request to Book option for inquiries that are past your booking lead time."
Not sure if thats a new option that they made available
Yep, you can restrict who can book now on Airbnb: https://www.ownerreservations.com/support/articles/channel-management-api-integrations-airbnb-common-issues-questions#book-now -- you can't fully turn off instant booking, but you can require certain criteria of the guest and require request to book for last minute bookings.
