This guide will help you understand how to snooze or deactivate listings outside of Travelnest.


When you begin working with Travelnest, we request all property owners to (snooze) or deactivate any existing listings they have directly on other platforms e.g. Airbnb or This step is crucial to prevent duplicate listings and double bookings.

If you decide to list your property on the same websites where you had listings before joining Travelnest, please ensure to snooze or deactivate them. Be advised that any duplicate listings could be removed by these booking sites as this would violate their terms and conditions. In some cases, your listings may not go live with Travelnest. 

If you decide to not snooze your external listings, you'll need to make sure you manage your Travelnest calendar and/or sync your external calendars to avoid double bookings. Should you choose to sync calendars, remember to deselect any booking sites on which you do not plan to list your property with Travelnest. You can do this in the 'Marketing' section of your account. 


In this guide, we cover some key FAQs and explain how to deactivate/snooze listings for each of our major booking sites.


Q: Why do I need to snooze/deactivate my existing listings?

A: At Travelnest, we create a single property profile for your property across all the booking sites you've selected in your 'Fees and Channels' section. We use the information you've provided in your property profile to build your listings on each chosen booking site. To avoid duplicate listings and double bookings, we request owners to either deactivate or snooze any live listings they currently have. 


Q: What if I want to stay on booking sites outside Travelnest?

A: If you choose to list your property on external platforms (for example, your own website or maintaining listings on booking sites that we offer) in addition to using Travelnest, please be aware that you are responsible for keeping your calendar updated with us for any bookings received through these external sources. This can be achieved by manually blocking dates or using our iCal synchronization tool.
