Barter Week How to take part

How to take part in Barter Week

You're a tourist and you'd like to propose a barter

If you're a tourist and you'd like to barter something in exchange for a stay of one or more days in a B&B, you have three options.

  1. Choose the location you'd like to visit from the regions menu or by typing it into the search bar. Once you've chosen the property that would suit you, contact the operator and offer what you have to barter.
  2. You can check out the wishlist of the B&Bs participating in Bartering Week and see if there's something that's right for you. Then, just contact the B&B operator and say you'd like to visit in exchange for the goods or services they're looking for.
  3. Enter your barter proposal in our system: you'll be contacted by managers interested in the goods or service you're willing to trade for a stay.

You can trade anything within reasonable limits, of course. Many B&Bs need, for example, photo or video shoots, or small-scale maintenance work on their property. The scope of what can be shared and exchanged can be endless, the important thing is not to sell yourself short or be embarrassed, but offer your barter seriously, politely, with curiosity and empathy, affability and originality.
