How do I close my calendar without taking it permanently offline?
Sometimes you may need to snooze your calendar for dates in the future, so that guests are not able to request or book your property after a certain date.
Snoozing means that your listing remains connected to sales channels, but the calendar is closed for new bookings.
It is often better to snooze your listing rather than unlist it, as unlisting can mean it takes longer for your listing to be reactivated on sales channels when you're ready to receive bookings again. By snoozing the listing, you retain the connection to the channel.
Reasons that you may need to "snooze" or close your calendar:
You are a property manager and have a contract to rent a property only to a certain date
You do not wish to accept bookings so far into the future
You plan to sell your property after a certain date
You have sold your property with closing date in the future
You don't currently know what rates you wish to set in the future
If you wish to make your property unavailable for a specific period of time, you can do that by blocking dates in your calendar.
