"The Bed & Breakfast Association provides information and support to B&B owners,
and it is also a good resource for would-be owners at the research stage."

The Times, 22 Oct 2011

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

(1) by credit or debit card at 60, using the Special Publishing Ltd. secure online payment system, or
(2) via PayPal at 55, using either your PayPal account OR your credit or debit card; or
(3) by cheque and post at 60, or
(4) by half-yearly Direct Debit of 27.50 (totalling 55 a year, saving 5), covered by the Direct Debit Guarantee.

See below for details:

2) Subscribe via PayPal, saving 5

new Save 5 via PayPal

We accept PayPal because it is low cost, highly secure, and widely used globally (it is part of eBay and used in over 55 countries). It does also help reduce our administrative costs by automatically charging your membership renewal payment when this falls due (the advantage for you is that renewal is thus at your original subscription rate, regardless of increases which may have incurred since). You are of course free to cancel this subscription renewal process via PayPal at any time between your signup date and the renewal date.

To join now via PayPal, simply click on the "Subscribe" button below, with your credit card handy, to make your payment of 55 online using PayPal, the highly secure global payment system used in 55 countries (PayPal is part of Ebay):
(You do not need to have a PayPal account to make your payment.)

*PayPal will automatically charge your subscription renewal at the same rate after twelve months when it falls due (but you are free to cancel this renewal process via PayPal at any time).

3) Payment by Cheque

Make cheque payable to Bed & Breakfast Associaton Ltd.   You can subscribe by cheque (drawn on a UK bank), as follows:

Print off our Membership Application Form ("Word" Document), then send the completed form with a cheque for 60.00 payable to: Bed and Breakfast Association Ltd. to the following address:

          Bed & Breakfast Association
          Belfry House
          Batts Field
          BA10 0DX

4) Subscribe by half-yearly Direct Debit, saving 5 a year
- pay a regular 27.50 every 6 months

Peace of mind and ease of payment by Direct Debit
Our recommended method of payment is by Direct Debit. It is very easy for you, spreads your costs and also keeps our administrative costs down. You are of course still free to cancel your subscription after a year, or (subject to an administration fee) switch to another payment method later.

We will charge your annual subscription on an equal six-monthly basis - currently 27.50, the equivalent of 55 a year (just 1.06 a week). This is a saving of 5 a year (8.3%) on the standard subscription.

To join now and pay by Direct Debit, simply print off and complete the following two forms:
a) our Membership Application Form ("Word" Document)
b) our Direct Debit Instruction Form ("pdf" Document)

Then send the two completed forms to the following address:

          Bed & Breakfast Association
          Belfry House
          Batts Field
          BA10 0DX
