What does “Instant Book” mean and what is the difference with “Request Booking”?
Campsaround platform gives you the opportunity to choose between 2 booking methods: “Request Booking” and “Instant Book”.
If your listing is marked as “Instant Book“, the dates are booked automatically when someone makes a reservation at your place and you do not receive a confirmation email about whether or not you have availability. That means that you need to have updated prices and availability for your listing to avoid problems in booking management such as double bookings.
If your listing is instant booking , you can save a lot of time because by regularly updating your dates, you won’t have to confirm or reject booking requests. It is also very useful to synchronize calendars from other platforms (such as Airbnb) with Campsaround platform in order to update availability automatically and block unavailable dates in the calendar.
