Are you interested in bed & breakfast?

Go-it-aloners do it the tough way.

There are many reasons for joining the bed & breakfast association:

- Tourism is a very hotly contested market (e. g. a strong lobby of boarding house and hotel owners) in which only those than be successful who achieve a strong presence with supraregional importance.

- Within the association it is possible to transfer customers among the association members (e. g. regular corporate customers) and to open up other sources of customers (e. g. tour operators) for whom individual agencies would not be of interest.

- Wide coverage with a uniform image increases the attractive power for the customer as well as his willingness to avail himself of what a company is offering. On the one hand, the recognition effect is greater and on the other hand the customer sees that the offer is being made by a serious and efficient organisation.

- Each individual agency benefits from the uniform appearance of the whole enterprise. And vice versa, the success of the whole is supported and promoted by each of its parts. The exchange of experience and tips among the agencies promotes improvement of the service and thus leads to greater efficiency and higher sales.

But you also have to contribute something!
