Keeping your calendar up to date is a vital part of being the best Outdoorsy owner you can be. Having to decline requests due to your calendar showing available for dates that really aren’t, can affect your owner stats and no one wants that! Plus it’s always a bummer for a renter to land on a rig as cool as yours to then find out it’s not available.
There are several reasons why you may not be able to rent out your rig on certain days, one of them being when you’ve finally decided to treat yourself to a vacation so you’re using it personally.
There is a simple process to make sure that your calendar is always up to date! Follow these steps to block off dates that are unavailable.
- Go to My listings in your owner dashboard
- Select the listing of the calendar you wish to update
- Click on “availability”
- Input the dates that are not available and double check that the box beside your dates says Unavailable.
- Click “Set availability”
Once you have completed those steps, your calendar will be updated and renters will no longer be able to request a booking for those dates.
If ever you need to unblock dates that you previously set as unavailable, just follow the same steps but once you get to step 4, change the box beside your selected dates to “available” and hit the “set availability” button. Your rig will then reappear in the search for those days and renters can send over requests.
Pro tip- Sometimes things come up suddenly so setting a weekly reminder on your smartphone to update your Outdoorsy calendar can help eliminate the chances of forgetting to block off dates!
