You may wish to create a manual reservation if you have a friend or owner staying at your property or if you receive a booking through a platform that isn't integrated with Hospitable. These reservations should not be confused with Direct bookings.

Similar to other types of reservations, messages, smart lock codes, tasks, and more can be automated for manual reservations. You'll need to ensure that all messaging rules are scoped to the manual platform.

All payments for manual reservations will be handled by the host, outside of Hospitable.
