The Instant Book feature allows guests to book your RV immediately by paying right away, without needing to send a request for your approval. This means you don't have to approve individual requests manually and allows guests to plan their trips faster.
This feature helps busy hosts save time by filling up their open calendars quickly. As soon as a guest makes an Instant Booking, the dates will be blocked off in the RV calendar and their payment will be processed all one convenient step. You'll never have to worry about missing out on booking requests again!
Pro tip: You can make the process smooth by keeping your RV calendar updated and blocking off dates you do not wish to rent, leaving only open dates available for bookings. You can also sync your calendars from other platforms with your RVezy calendar to avoid double-booking your RV.
The benefits of the Instant Book feature include:
- Faster bookings: Confirm trips without having to approve each request.
- Increased listing views: Using Instant Book to process bookings positively affects your response rate, which can improve your listing's placement in overall search results. Guests can also narrow their search to Instant Book listings only by using the search filters.
- Attracts serious guests: Listings with Instant Book are more popular with guests who want a fast way to secure their chosen RV and have already confirmed their trip plans.
Eligibility and criteria
As a host, you will be eligible to turn on the Instant Book feature in your listing if it is located in Canada, includes at least 5 photos of your RV, and has a description of at least 100 words.
After receiving an Instant Booking, you'll need to acknowledge the booking by responding to the guest's message within 24 hours. Failure to do so may result in the cancellation of the booking.

To activate the Instant Book feature, head to your RVezy Dashboard where you'll find your RV listing on the right-hand side. Click Edit Listing and find the Earn More section.
From there, you'll be able to toggle the feature on or off at any time.
