THE ‘Homestay’ scheme registration for the TT Festival and the Isle of Man Festival of Motorcycling 2013 (Manx Grand Prix) has been launched.
The government’s Department of Economic Development has sent out registration forms to home owners who have previously registered offering them the opportunity to register for the scheme again next year.
Householders who have not previously registered, but who are considering offering Homestay accommodation, are advised to register their interest with the Department as soon as possible to help to meet the ever-increasing demand and enable visitors to secure their bookings early. The registration fee is £15 to include both events.
All homestay accommodation is inspected by civil servants to ensure it meets the required quality standard as detailed in the Homestay Hosts’ information pack.
Homestay can be offered during TT for any number of nights between May 25 and June 9 and for the ‘Festival of Motorcycling’ between August 17 and September 1.
Last year the department registered just under 800 properties.
Registration for the TT Homestay scheme closes on April 26.
