Advertise Accommodation

We have various advertising opportunities.  Most members take advantage of our inclusive membership scheme (standard/silver/gold membership which (among many other things) allows you to advertise on the VisitBude website and in the official Bude Accommodation Guide.

Some businesses choose not to advertise in such a comprehensive manner, and simply opt to advertise in the official Bude Accommodation Guide

…all income is spent on operating the VisitBude website and Tourist Information Centre and provides the funds for Bude Area Tourist Board to market Bude!  Support from our members help to keep the TIC open, keep the VisitBude website updated and allow us to employ a marketing firm to promote Bude.

People are surprised to learn that we receive no funding from Cornwall Council or Bude Stratton Town Council…

Our Standard Membership packages is £150 per year, plus a fee of £20 per room, £20 per cottage, or £2 per camping pitch / static van for holiday parks, (the fee per unit/room/pitch is capped at £200).  Your property will get maximum exposure by being listed on all applicable category pages (click here for examples).  Membership includes an Inn Style account to sell availability online.
