For OTA not connected to the channel manager, the synchronization of the calendars will be possible with the iCalendar links.

 

Find on our website the list of the OTA connected to the channel manager, if the OTA is not on this list you will add the iCal links on the calendar of this OTA, it will send the availabilities from Amenitiz to the OTA.

To access the iCal links of your accommodations, you can go directly to > Channel manager and then go to section > Icals :

 

From this section, you can directly copy the link and then integrate it on the desired travel website you wish to connect to.

  • Availability only: If the accommodation has no availabilities, it will appear as closed. If it has availabilities, it will appear as open.

  • Combination of availability + rate opened/closed: if the accommodation has no availabilities, it will appear as closed. If it has availabilities and the rate is closed, it will appear as closed. If it has no availabilities and the rate is opened, it will appear as closed.
The iCal links given by a combination of accommodation + rate are a smart choice if you want to close/open as you would on Amenitiz or an OTA. If you have a cottage and 3 rooms and you created a specific rate for each, for example, you have the option to copy the link of that exact combination.

Keep in mind that iCal links follow certain rules: there is no price, min/max stay nor closed for arrival/departure information and they only show days when accommodation is unavailable, all other days being considered as available. We are only updating availability information. That is why it is important for you, whenever you get a booking through a platform connected through iCal links, to manually register the booking on Amenitiz.

The synchroniztion delay of the iCal links depends on the OTA, it can be between 1 hour and twice a day.
