I blocked days in Airbnb, how long does it take to sync and block in VRBO?

Hi,

 

I have my calendars between Airbnb and VRBO linked up.  I blocked some days in my Airbnb calendar but I see when I go to my VRBO calendar they're still not blocked out; how long does this calendar sync usually take?  Shouldn't it be immediately this way the days don't get booked within VRBO?

 

Thank you!

theoretically it should be more or less immediately but I have noticed delays of 10 - 15 mins, which could be critical for popular dates.

Worse still, sometimes the synch just DOESN"T synch.

I simply don't trust technology. I have all the apps on my phone, so when a booking comes through - I manually block on the other sites.  When the synch kicks in, no harm done ( blocked twice). MUCH more desirable than getting a double booking and needing to cancel one with the associated penalties.
