It's been a few years, 1277 customer support tickets, and countless nudges to our Vrbo account manager, but Vrbo has finally answered our prayers and now Uplisting is amongst the first to offer native Vrbo inbox guest and host message syncing.

You can now manage all your guest messages from Airbnb,, Google, direct bookings, and yes, Vrbo, all in one central location. This is the unified inbox experience you've been waiting for, and we're excited to finally deliver it to you.

Here's what you can expect from the native Vrbo inbox integration:

  • Unified inbox: Manage all new confirmed booking guest messages, across all channels, in one place.
  • Automated guest messages: Set up automated messages for your Vrbo guests, just like you do for your guests on other platforms.
  • Ease of use: No more switching between platforms - handle guest communications from the convenience of your Uplisting dashboard.

Patience is a virtue, and we want to thank you for yours. We are committed to improving your experience on Uplisting and helping you run your short-term rental business more smoothly. This latest feature is just one more way we are doing that.

How to get started with the new Vrbo native messaging integration

You don’t need to do anything to start using this new upgrade, any booking created on Vrbo from May 22nd 2023 at 11am EST onwards will sync and send messages directly to and from the Vrbo inbox.

Limitations to be aware of

  1. Native message syncing with Vrbo is limited to confirmed bookings created from May 22nd 2023 at 11am EST onwards. Existing bookings can’t sync messages with the native Vrbo messaging. We expect to be able to sync messages with existing bookings in future (once Vrbo provide the ability to do so).
  2. Messages are limited to confirmed bookings (not enquries/inquiries). Again, we expect to support enquiries/inquiries in future.
