iCal: How do I sync my HomeAway calendar via iCal?

There is one possibility right now to keep your calendars updated on most of the Homeaway websites: the iCal.

This iCal is available at the top of the Sales Channels tab inside each of your rooms on Xotelia.

The iCal is not instant, Homeaway seems to refresh it every hour.

The iCal doesn't update your prices, so you will have to do it manually.

The iCal doesn't retrieve bookings, so you will have to enter them manually on Xotelia.
