How do I block off dates on my Calendar?

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 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!

  1. Go to the Calendar on your Host Dashboard
  2. Click on “Update availability”
  3. Select date(s)
  4. Select an availability option and click “Apply”
    A. Unavailable – vehicle is not available to rent.
    B. No trips start or end – vehicle is available to rent, but no trips can start or end on the selected day(s).

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 you ever need to unblock dates that you previously set as unavailable, just follow the same steps. 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!
