A special day to celebrate, support, honour and appreciate

What is Independent Accommodation Day?

Every 24th March, Independent Accommodation Day celebrates the millions of independent and privately owned accommodation providers across the globe—including boutique hotels, vacation rentals, inns, Airbnbs, cottages, castles and campsites.

This day also recognises the property owners, hoteliers and hosts who contribute wonderful accommodation to tourism and travel.
