We offer two grades of membership for tourism businesses – Silver and Gold – and at each grade we have rates for both small and large businesses. A large business is one with 5, or more, staff (including agency and contractors) calculated on a full-time equivalent basis over the year. Using this approach, most B&Bs and self-catering accommodation, and many attractions, activities, pubs, restaurants and shops are small businesses.
For clarification, we consider tourism businesses to include, all forms of accommodation, activities, attractions, shops, restaurants, pubs, cafes, local producers and any aiming to attract visitors to their business.
If in doubt, ask us.
In addition to our standard Silver and Gold membership we offer a rate for non-tourism businesses and one for very large businesses. We have a special membership package for agencies listing self-catering cottages.
All rates are for a 12-month period. See methods of payment.
