We recommend reviewing these resources to ensure you're setting yourself up for success:

Good news: with the August 2020 HomeAway/VRBO merge, different HomeAway branches that weren't supported by Beyond Pricing (HomeAway.cl, HomeAway.jp, HomeAway.ml, HomeAway.nz,HomeAway.sg) are now available under VRBO.COM

Customization in Beyond Pricing

Settings to adjust in VRBO

There are a few settings you need to adjust before you get started:

  1. Make sure your calendar is only open for the next 12 months;
  2. Set an artificially high Base Price on VRBO;
  3. Turning off other pricing tools like Market Maker;
  4. Remove any length of stays discounts, like weekly discount, you have set in VRBO.

After the August 2020 HomeAway/VRBO merge, Extra Guest Fees will need to be managed directly in your VRBO account.

With VRBO, you will have access to adjust Minimum and Maximum Prices, Last Minute Discounts, Check in and Checkout days, Changeover Days and Minimum Stays directly in Beyond Pricing.

See article What can I do in the Customization Tab? for a broad overview.

Setting Minimum Stays
If you would like to have Annual or Seasonal Minimum Stay settings active for your VRBO listing, you must set this directly in Beyond Pricing. If you do not want to have Annual or Seasonal Minimum Stays, no need to adjust this setting in Beyond Pricing.

You can set this in the Customize Tab for each of your listings:

  • Annual Minimum Stay: Applies to all reservations on your Calendar
  • Seasonal Minimum Stay: Applies to reservations for a certain date range. This will override what is specified as the Annual Minimum Stay.
For example, I want to set an Annual Minimum Stay of two nights year-round. However, during Thanksgiving I'd like to increase that to a three night Minimum Stay. Let's set that up in the our Customize Tab for this year:
  • Last Minute Minimum Stay: Applies to reservation within a certain period of time from the day you set.
For example, I have an Annual Minimum Stays of 7 nights, but for people booking within 7 days of check in date, I would like my Minimum Stays to be 2 nights. This will override what is specified as the Annual and Seasonal Minimum Stay.

Adding a listing

New listings and other changes made in VRBO will show up automatically when we refresh your account each night at midnight. To have a new listing or any other changes in VRBO show up immediately, simply refresh your account in your Connected Accounts tab like this:

If your listing is not yet activated in VRBO, you will need to toggle filters on your Beyond Pricing Dashboard to view your new listing. Learn more here.

Troubleshooting

If your Market has legal regulations around Minimum Stays length, your Minimum Stays settings in Beyond Pricing will have to match those regulations. If you set a period of time shorter than what is allowed by local regulations, Beyond Pricing won't be able to push any Minimum Stays settings to your account.
