National B&B Week

National B&B Week was founded in 2018 by online booking technology company eviivo and the B&B Association.

This year, they are again joining forces with the broader travel and technology industries, with over 40 partners signed up to support National B&B Week, ranging from online travel agencies and tourism boards to insurers and technology providers.

National B&B Week have chosen The Family Holiday Association as the official charity. They help provide short breaks to struggling families who face some of the toughest challenges life can bring. B&B owners are being invited to offer two-night stays in their accommodation to families through the charity during National B&B Week and beyond. They also have the option to add a new booking mechanic to their website which will allow their customers to donate £1 to the charity when they confirm their stay

“Our B&B’s are world-class.  Four of TripAdvisor’s top five B&Bs in the world are in Britain and this is something that we want to capitalise on. Britain is open for business and National B&B Week is a great opportunity for us to showcase this dynamic sector. I hope we can encourage even more people to support British tourism and experience the superb places on offer all across the nation.”

Michael Ellis: Minister for Arts, Heritage, and Tourism

“There will be various activities planned throughout the week that guests and hosts can get involved in, including supporting the Family Holiday Association in their outstanding charitable work, helping families most in need of a break, struck by severe or long-term illness, mental health issues, bereavement or domestic violence. We want to encourage as many people as possible to take a break during National B&B Week, and we hope to see thousands of B&B owners taking part to make the week a huge success.”

Ed Goldswain: eviivo Marketing Director

“More than 20,000 B&Bs across the country generate £2 billion annually for the UK economy.  This week is all about recognising their contribution to the economy, and the hard work and dedication that goes into ensuring holidaymakers have fantastic trips making great memories with their loved ones.  We look forward to seeing how our members get involved this year, and we are grateful to eviivo for their assistance in supporting the industry.”
