How to Connect Pitchup to myfrontdesk


Pitchup is a leading online marketplace for outdoor accommodations, specializing in campsites, RV sites, caravans, cabins or glamping accommodations. Over 1 million travelers from 99 countries have already booked on

With a global team headquartered in London, Pitchup is a member of the Deloitte Technology Fast 50, showcasing the 50 fastest-growing technology companies in the UK.

Pitchup is a calendar-based channel, which works differently than normal distribution channels. For example, only availability can be updated, no rates or any other stay restrictions will be sent or updated. You can learn more about this by reading our article here.

Note: Calendar channels do not support receiving rates from a channel manager. You must enter rates directly into your Pitchup extranet.
