Instant Book listings allow renters to book and pay for their RV rental immediately, instead of needing to send a booking request for approval. Owners don't have to approve individual requests manually, and renters can plan their trip faster and with more confidence.
An Instant Book badge on the listing image on the search result page identifies RVs with this option enabled. Renters can also filter their search results to find available RVs with Instant Book quickly.
For RV Owners:
This feature helps busy owners save time and fill their open calendars quickly. Instant Book trips automatically block off the RV listing calendar with the requested dates and processes the required payment from the renter in one convenient step. You never have to worry about missing out on booking requests again.
Pro tip: You can make the process smooth by keeping your availability calendar updated and blocking off dates you do not wish to rent, leaving only open dates available for bookings.
The benefits of Instant Book include:
- Faster bookings: Confirm trips without having to approve each request
- Increase listing views: Using Instant Book to process bookings positively affects your response rate, which can improve your listing's placement in overall search results. Renters can also narrow their search to Instant Book listings only.
- Attract serious renters: Instant book listings are more popular with renters planning their trip and want a fast way to secure their chosen RV.
- Risk-free 24 hr cancellation: Owners and renters have 24 hours to cancel an Instant Book without penalty
Owners will automatically be eligible to turn on Instant Book if their new listing includes 5+ RV photos and a description of at least 100 words.
Eligible listings will also have a dashboard card to notify the owners.
To double-check the Instant Book status or to turn the feature On or Off, click on "Edit Listing > Earn More".
Bookings submitted through Instant Book are automatically confirmed. You will have 24 hours to decline the booking without penalty, and RVezy will issue a full refund to the renter.

Instant Book is a great feature for travelers looking to quickly book an RV without having to worry about waiting for responses from owners.
Travelers can filter their search specifically for instant bookable RVs available for their requested dates. They can also look for the Instant Book icon visible on a listing card. It makes the booking process much faster and more convenient.
Owners and renters may cancel an Instant Booking for any reason within the 24 hour grace period from the time of payment. Renters will receive a full refund.
Should the renter cancel the booking after the 24 hour grace period, conditions stated in the cancellation policy will apply.
