Register your Home for TT 2010 16 February 2010

The Department of Tourism and Leisure is calling upon Isle of Man residents to consider offering Homestay accommodation for the TT period.

There has been a notable increase in the number of visitors viewing the website and also a tremendous interest in visitors wishing to secure Homestay accommodation for TT 2010. As a result of this the Department would welcome applications from home owners wishing to participate in the scheme.

Anyone interested in registering their property is advised to do so 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 £8.00 and Homestay can be offered during TT for any number of nights between May 29th and June 12th. Providing accommodation in your home during the TT Festival, as part of the Homestay Scheme, is exempt from Tax, provided that the gross income received, before expenses, does not exceed £1,500.

Hon Martyn Quayle, Minister for Tourism and Leisure, said:

‘This is a great opportunity for us to encourage the many visitors who wish to visit our beautiful Island for the TT and enjoy the unique and exciting atmosphere of this ever popular Festival. Following the success of 2009, when the Island enjoyed a 4.3% increase in visitor numbers, the continuing interest in the Island as a holiday destination is most welcome.

‘The provision of quality Homestay accommodation would ensure that we are in the best position to meet the requirements of our visitors and the Department would welcome new applications.’

Any Homestay providers who have already filled their places for the fortnight are also asked to inform the Department in order to prevent repeat enquiries being made.

For further information and to register for the Homestay scheme please call Pippa Gilbert on 686802 or email . The guidance notes can also be viewed on
