Sleep Easy During the Credit Crunch
To simplify booking a room anywhere in the UK and Ireland for a "home from home" experience, entrepreneur Annabella Forbes has launched bed&fed. Annabella says she aims to revolutionise the current trend of letting out your spare room for extra cash.
Bed&fed is unashamedly "cosy" in its ethos, says Annabella. Rather than an expensive hotel, impersonal B&B, or uncomfortable hostel, bed&fed is a register of informal dinner, bed and breakfast accommodation for no more than £35 (40€) per person per night irrespective of whether you stay in a flat, cottage or castle. Guests are treated like a family friend with supper in the kitchen, a comfortable bed and a 'help yourself' breakfast in the morning.
The website www.bedandfed.co.uk guides you to the nearest spare room, while also providing all the information homeowners require to cash-in on this scheme, especially during these testing economic times.
"Bed&fed works both ways", explains Annabella. "It's a wonderful opportunity to gain an income from your spare room which is so often empty, as well as a great way to keep your accommodation costs down when travelling, without reducing the quality of where you stay. The hassle of finding somewhere to eat is eliminated, too, with this friendly and flexible arrangement.
Guests looking for a place to stay can use the website completely free without the need for usernames or passwords and we never charge booking fees: you simply check www.bedandfed.co.uk and contact the home directly, making life easy for everyone. The charge per night, paid directly to the homeowner, is just £35 (max.), and bed&fed offers an opportunity to review where you have stayed to help other users."
As a homeowner, if the thought of letting out your spare room appeals then bed&fed is an ideal opportunity. The system is completely flexible, you need only show your room as 'available' when it suits you, there are clear guidelines within the 'How it Works' section of the website about security issues and, if you introduce fellow homeowners to bed&fed, you can earn a 15% commission as a 'Rep'. The cost of registering as a homeowner is £70 (90€) a year (less than the average weekly shopping bill), and there is currently an introductory offer of £70 for 15 months effectively giving you 3 months completely free!
Bed&fed accounts for a middle-market of inexpensive, friendly accommodation within the UK and Ireland which is easy for everyone to access. Even existing B&B businesses can sign up thereby further increasing their own profiles," concludes Annabella.
