Onboarding your short-term rental to AirDNA

Written by Tom Williams
Updated over a week ago

You can connect your Airbnb listing in the My Listings section using your Airbnb listing iCal link. (At this time, AirDNA only supports Airbnb listings.)

To connect your listing you simply need to input your iCal link when prompted on the My Listings page, which you can find under your listing details page on Airbnb.


How to Find Your iCal Link

When a booking is made on a short-term rental (STR) platform like Airbnb or VRBO, the reservation is logged in the listing’s iCalendar or iCal. It is necessary to import this information into AirDNA for us to be able to give rate recommendations based on the previous booking performance and optimize your STR’s pricing strategy.

You can find your iCal link from the Listings Details page in Airbnb:

  1. Go to Calendar

  2. Click Availability on the right side of the page

  3. Click on Airbnb calendar export and copy the iCal

  4. Paste this link into My Listings in AirDNA

After completing these steps, you should see your listing on the My Listings page:

There are multiple benefits of onboarding your Airbnb listing to your AirDNA account, such as building a custom comp set to compare your property’s performance against your competitors and using our dynamic pricing feature to get daily rate suggestions.

If you're experiencing any issues with connecting your listing please get in touch with our Customer Support team.

Why Can’t I Verify my Property in AirDNA?

In order to connect your listing to AirDNA, your listing needs to be active on Airbnb. An active listing is one that is available to take bookings on the platform. (At this time, you can only add Airbnb listings to AirDNA.)

If you are getting an error message when adding your property, it could be that your listing is inactive on Airbnb.

To activate your listing on Airbnb:

  1. Go to your Listings in Airbnb and select the listing you want to make active

  2. Go to Listing status and click Edit

  3. Change the Listing status to Listed and click Save

Once you change your status to Listed, it can take up to an hour for this update to be reflected in search results.

Once you have added your listing to AirDNA, you can use our pricing tools, competitor (comp) sets, and more to assist your short-term rental pricing strategy.
