Do you know API for booking?

Shun Yamada @shyamady

My friend wants to build a booking-based marketplace like Airbnb. The host sync with Google Calendar or set up some availability date/time. And they will get a booking from their guest.

Do you know some useful tools/API to realize it?

FYI
Calendly API doesn't work. It's for individual bookings.

      Oh, timekit seems to be awesome :) Thanks.

    You need to look into ICAL to synchronize the calendar of a property across different platforms, such as Airbnb, booking.com etc

    Do you know SimplyBook? Maybe that could work for you.

    Does it absolutely need to sync with Google Cal? Airbnb doesn't do that. They have their own calendar.

    You can build a calendar in Vue: https://courses.vuejsdevelopers.com/p/build-vue-vuex-app-ssr

      Thank you for your comment. Doesn't Airbnb sync with Google Cal?
      I think the application should work with booking like Airbnb, Booking.com, or any other booking-based ones.

      Time zone problem makes development difficult I suppose.

      You're right. I couldn't find a simple and easy to develop all of the processes for booking.
