B&B owners who have their own website get an extra 20€ discount for an annual subscription, if they put a banner on their site with a link to http://www.bbguide.eu.
The only condition is that the link remains on the site during the year in which the B&B is in our database. If this link is removed without informing BBguide and after receiving the discount, there won't be given a discount again. These links are automatically and regularly checked. The only condition to become a link partner is to have your own website. It doesn't matter which subscription (Standard, Premium, Gold) you choose. This discount is given on all packages.
If you're not a Standard/Premium/Gold member yet, the procedure is simple.
This is the procedure if you haven't subscribed yet:
If you've already paid, you can always place a banner, but you only receive this discount the following year. It's not possible to claim the discount.
It's completely up to you whether or not you keep pace with the calendar of availability. To avoid misunderstandings, we advise you to synchronize your agenda with this calendar regularly.
If you are a Premium or a Gold member, you can choose whether you want your calendar of availability to appear on the page "last minutes". Please make this known on "my profile". On this page, visitors immediately get an overview of all places where there are still rooms available in the next 30 days and whether there's a discount adjudged. You can also fill in this discount yourself in "my profile".
It's in your interest that you keep your calendar of availability up to date regularly.
You're allowed to add 4 photos of your B&B.
We advise you to add a photo of the outside of your B&B on a sunny day as a first picture, in the link "B&B – pictures". The first impression is most important. The first photo appears on the page of results.
Per room, you can add 1 photo of the room itself.
Premium and Gold members have the opportunity to upload 12 extra photos through the menu "Photo Gallery". (This service isn't available for free/standard members.)
Two points of attention:
Try 'Ctrl' and 'F5' when you see your old photo. Your browser will renew the page. In most cases, this solves the problem.
BBguide is a site which is looked at from countries all over Europe, and even outside of Europe. That's why it's advisable to introduce your B&B in different languages. At this moment, you can visit our site in Dutch, French and English. The languages will be expanded in the future.
In some cases, B&B owners have a website which is already translated in different languages. If this isn't the case for you, don't worry. BBguide co-operates with professional translators who can translate the content (small-large description of your B&B / description of rooms / route description) fast and correctly for you.
What's the procedure to pass on a translation:
Rate : 35 Euro per language (VAT included)
Note: - You're free to take over these translations later on in your personal website.)
- If you don't want any translations, please don't leave the fields of description empty!
