Hello! We're delighted to have you here.

It is possible to link your Rentals directly to Rental Ninja using an Ical connection.

In this article, we will explain how to add properties to your account with Ical Ninja.

How do I add rentals to my account using ICAL?

Step by Step

Create your Rentals.

  1. Go to the Rentals Page

  2. You will see that there are Rentals "To be filled", click on them to fill out the needed details.

    There will be as many "To be filled" Rentals visible as you requested during the subscription of the account.

  3. Fill out the name of the property and the sleeping capacity.

  4. Indicate who the Rental Owner is.

    Since you will not yet have created any Rental Owners in Rental Ninja, you will need to do so now. So, click on "Create Owner" and fill out the requested details.

    If needed, you can edit the details of all Rental Owners later by going to Settings > Rental Owners.

5. Fill out the country, currency, address, and zip code of the Rental.

6. Click on "Create"

Great, you have now created your Rental(s)!

Note: If you'd like to add more Rentals to your account, you can always do so by going to the Rentals Page and clicking on "+ Add Rentals" on the lower right side of your screen.

Next, how to connect your Rental to the Booking Channels with iCal?

First, Booking Sources.

  1. Create your Booking Sources by going to Settings > Booking Sources

  2. Click on "Create Booking Source"

  3. Fill out the name of the Source you want to create and click on "create"

Next, link the Rentals to your Booking Channels.
