Q: How do I choose which competitors to track?

A: Select competitors that match or closely resemble your property in terms of location and the number of bedrooms and/or bathrooms to ensure the data is relevant.

Q: Can I remove a competitor from my list?

A: Yes, you can manage your list of competitors at any time by removing properties that no longer compare directly to yours or adding new ones as the market evolves.  

Q: The prices don't match what I have on my PMS/on Airbnb Pricing calendar    

A: Rankbreeze displays the basenight prices the guest sees when they are visiting the Airbnb listing page. Read our Article “Why don't the base night prices match the rates in the Competitor Rate?” for more details.

Q: The prices for blocked dates are not visible like the training videos. How do I see them?    

A: Following the release of Airbnb's 2023 Winter update, we found that the prices we were receiving for dates that are unavailable for booking (i.e. the blue boxes) were no longer accurate, so we decided to remove them.You can still make precise pricing decisions based on supply. For example, if the majority of the listing's competitors are unavailable to book for the weekend, it means that guests have less options, which gives an available listing a pricing advantage.    

Q: I keep seeing a spinning wheel instead of prices for competitors that I add. What is wrong?    

A: Typically, listings that have the rolling circle are no longer active on Airbnb. You can check it by clicking the name of the listing. If the listing isn’t active, you’ll see an Airbnb error message. If this is not the case, please reach out to
