Course Description 

There is an extraordinary change in the bed and breakfast industry – learn where the changes exist.    Earning money from your home by listing with international reservation platforms like Airbnb, Stayz, and several others is very affordable as there is very little capital outlay.  This course shows you what you need to furnish your spare room/s for guest use, how to manage breakfast and how to set the room rate, about local government regulations, tax obligations, fire safety and public liability cover.  This course is very comprehensive and deals with all issues as they apply to responsible hosting. Your tutor, Stewart Whyte, is an internationally published author & lecturer on B&B. He has just had a book published (31st Jan) on this subject which will be available to purchase after the course.

Overall the course explains the difference between a traditional B&B and a Short Let operator. It covers the importance of responsible hosting and gives the student an insight into the many options available to list and market your property via the Internet.   Airbnb is NOT the only international reservation platform.
