Any UK accommodation provider that welcomes groups, offers competitive terms and operates a Covid-safe policy can sign up to the charter.
Tour operators and group travel organisers will be able to access the list of accommodation charter members via the association’s website.
UKinbound members can also sign up to an enhanced charter programme, UKinbound Group Friendly Charter Plus, which has exclusive benefits for tour operators and group travel organisers.
