Benefits of Joining IHUK

By joining together to form IHUK the bunkhouses, hostels and group accommodation providers can represent their interests with Tourist Boards, Ordnance Survey and other government or large bodies. Active input from members is welcomed and with the weight of IHUK behind an issue it is possible to lobby large organisations which are inaccessible to single accommodation providers.

The benefits of sharing knowledge with other accommodation owners are huge and IHUK has a busy Owners Message Board where accommodation owners regularly post information about recommended services, unwanted guests, scams and items for sale.

By marketing many members' accommodation on a joint platform, IHUK achieves an economy of scale which makes it affordable for individual bunkhouses and hostels to be represented at consumer shows, in the bookshops and with a major presence on the web.
