Membership Fees and Benefits

We offer three grades of membership for tourism businesses – Silver, Gold and Premium Partner.  Within Silver and Gold 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.

We also have an Associate Member membership for businesses within the area who wish to work with our members in a business to business context, these might be web developers, food suppliers, laundry suppliers.

All rates are for a 12-month period.  See methods of payment.
