Please note that BookingBug cannot control how frequently external calendars pull from BookingBug. As a result, your personal calendar may not display the same up to date live information that is in your BookingBug calendar. Roughly, Google pulls approximately every 7 hours.

Please note: For events based businesses, the BookingBug iCal link is not available from your account. Please contact to enquire about gettting this.
