Join our Buy-One-Night-Get-One-Night-Free Program

Most innkeepers will tell you that their most valued customers are those who visit during off-peak times. Our Buy-One-Night-Get-One-Night-Free program targets those customers to help you book hard-to-fill rooms.

How the program works

When you sign up for the program, your inn will be listed in our Bed and Breakfasts and Country Inns guidebook which contains a Buy-One-Night-Get-One-Night-Free Certificate. Guests will call their inn of choice, mention that they have a certificate and then reserve the room. The traveler purchases the first night at regular rates and receives the next night free.

You get to fill a room that would otherwise go empty. Guests feel like they are receiving a gift from you and want to tell others about your wonderful inn. Many, many inns absolutely love the program because these guests and their friends and daughters and bosses then come and pay full-price.

Most inns accept the certificate "anytime based on availability" or "last minute" or specify their off-peak times. You may also limit how many rooms or which rooms you make available. Many innkeepers offer certificate holders their most expensive rooms to entice these guests to return and to make the most revenue from each reservation.

We would suggest that you accept the certificate "anytime, based on availability" so that you will have travelers calling year-round. You can always choose to not accept the certificates during a particular period because the guests are told that everything is based on availability. Innkeepers manage this program by projected availability. If there's a big event, popular weekend etc. you project you would be full. You can also decide you will take a certain number of certificates per month and the number can vary by how full that month usually is.

Unprecedented exposure for your inn

Through our massive media and advertising campaigns, your inn will be exposed to hundreds of thousands of inngoers. Innkeepers agree that this program will increase your overall occupancy rates, increase your revenue during soft periods and reach new guests, who often return even after the promotions are over.

Your FREE listing may be included in large bookstore versions and smaller special edition books such as booklets created for Wells Fargo, Norelco, Amtrac, etc. The smaller promotional versions are sponsored by some of the finest companies in America including Hallmark, Karastan, Lipton, MasterCard, Nabisco, Nestle and many others.

All professionally run B&Bs may apply.
