Guest Experience

Q: Are the guests' sites locked when they book through Airbnb and Vrbo?

No, Guests are not able to lock their sites upon booking and the integration will not automatically lock sites. Because sites are not able to be locked, any lock site fees you have set up in Campspot are not transferred over through the integration and you also cannot set those up through the BnBerry Extranet. 

Reservation Edits, Cancellations and Refunds

Q: How do reservation edits work?

Guests are able to edit or request edits to their own reservations through their Airbnb or Vrbo account. Guests are only able to make edits themselves if the cancellation policy in Airbnb or Vrbo allows for edits or cancellations in the time frame that the customer wants to make the change. For any edits outside of that, guests are able to make edit requests directly through the website. All reservation edits are handled directly by BnBerry and your park will not need to do anything. 

Please Note: When reservation edits or requests are made, your park is not notified so it is recommended that you login to the Extranet regularly to check for these to keep updated on changes. 

Reservation date edits made by BnBerry are treated like Cancellations and the original reservation will be cancelled in both Airbnb or Vrbo and Campspot.

The reservation will then be automatically rebooked for the new reservation dates. When a reservation is cancelled and rebooked the funds from the original reservation payment will need to be moved to the new booking. This can be done by moving the funds from either User or Camp Credit use them to pay for the new reservation under new dates.

If a guest contacts you directly requesting a reservation edit, you should direct them back to the website where they booked - either Airbnb or Vrbo. 

Q: How do cancellations and refunds work?

Cancellation policies must be put in place during the set up process with BnBerry as the policies in Campspot are not passed through the integration. 

Guests are able to cancel their reservations directly through Airbnb or Vrbo if the cancellation policy allows for that. Reservations cancelled by guests will automatically be cancelled in Campspot as well. 

Please Note: Your park will need to process any refund for the reservation through Campspot using the Virtual Credit Card provided to you by BnBerry. 

Q: How do no-shows work?

If a guest doesn’t show up for their booking, you will need to inform BnBerry of this. All reservations charges are still collected by your park in the case of no shows.

Q: What happens if a double booking occurs?

You can view a list of double bookings by viewing the Online Travel Agency (OTA) Double Bookings report in the Reporting section of Campspot. If double bookings occur, your park will be responsible for contacting Bnberry and deciding which of the reservations will be moved to a new site or new dates. If you decide that the reservation made through Campspot should be moved then you can make that change in Campspot.

Reporting and Monitoring

Q: How will bookings made through the integrations look different in Campspot Reports?

Four new Reports have been added in the Reporting section of Campspot.
The new Reports are shown in the image below.
