Advertise your business

Wye Valley & Forest of Dean Tourism has various different opportunities to advertise to visitors on our main website.  Type A adverts are on the Home Page.   Types C and D  will appear on all interior category pages. Members are invited to take any of these advert spaces, details listed below. Non-members may also advertise although the rates are higher.  In addition, we welcome applications from tourism-related businesses within our area to become a member of the Association where they can advertise their business and services on the member website (business to business).


Type A – Near the top right side of the Home Page, a maximum of 20 vertically scrolling adverts, randomly selected to show and scroll in pairs, being visible for about 8 seconds.  If an advert is clicked the user is taken to a URL defined by the advertiser.  This is usually the advertiser’s own website, rather than their page on our site.



Type C – These adverts appear at the top of Category (eg Accommodation) and Sub-Category Pages (eg Bed & Breakfast).  In general these adverts are reserved for gold listings as part of their membership benefits and adverts appear in the relevant category, thus adverts for self-catering accommodation will only appear on the self-catering page.  We have a advert design service available if needed, for small charge – see below.

It is also possible members with gold listings to buy an advert to be placed in any category. As an example a cycle or canoe activity might wish to place an advert that appears on the camping page.


Type D – There will be a maximum of 30 adverts, displayed at the foot of each Category and Sub-Category Page throughout the site in 2 slots, randomly rotating.



All adverts are bookable for 12 month periods (not a calendar year) and may be scheduled to start on a specific date. We may be able to accept an advert for part of the year – discuss your requirements with us.

  • Type A – £150
  • Type C – Only available for members with Gold listings.  An advert placed in the member’s relevant category is free.  An advert may be placed in any category for £100
  • Type D – £75

Adverts placed by non-members are subject to an additional fee of £100.

All fees are subject to VAT at the standard rate.

Advert Design

We will only accept adverts that are compatible with the ethos and design of our website.  There is a small design charge of £30 + VAT for new adverts.   Alternatively, advertisers may supply their own artwork to our specification.  Advertisers may change their advert design up to 4 times in the 12 month period to accommodate seasonal changes but there will be additional fee of £30 + VAT if we re-design the advert.
