Ebab.com was the first website to offer safe, private accommodations for travelers in the gay community and continues to be a leader in this category. Ebab strives to have their guests feel welcome, accepted, and comfortable with hosts of the community. Ebab's gay or gay-friendly hosts span 560 cities and 72 countries.
Ebab 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 extranet.
