for only 60 a year

(just 1.15 a week)

Membership is open to anyone who owns or manages a B&B in the UK, or who is in the process of planning or buying a B&B. There are many reasons to join, and the cost of your membership is deductible against tax as a business expense.

The Bed & Breakfast Association is the best value of comparable trade associations in the tourism sector. Our subscription rate of 60 (unchanged since 2010) compares with the minimum subscription rates of 299 for Farmstay UK, 359 for UK Hospitality, 70 for PASC (for UK self-caterers) and 155 for ASSC (for Scottish self-caterers).

Our subscriptions will rise later this year when our all-new website and member community is launched, but we are determined to remain the best value trade association. Meanwhile, if you join us today, you will lock in today's savings as below.

and it is also a good resource for would-be owners at the research stage."

This member wrote to us in July 2014 about the savings she has made as a member:

              "Amazing - the B&B Association really helped me! I saved over 1000 by going to the right
              B&B specialist insurer. When I started out I found the right policy but a year later when my
              previous insurer was taken over by a big multi-national, I needed a further review as they
              amalgamated B&B policy with Hotel policy so the rules were no longer appropriate for
              tiny business like us.
              Yet again the B&B Association's advice helped me so much, so they are really on the pulse with
              good information: I got a deal for 411.00 a year, very helpful for such a small and seasonal
