Scotbreaks to advertise short breaks and exclusive deals in Scotland
Luxury hotel and B&B owners in Scotland are being given the opportunity to team up with a new website offering short breaks and exclusive deals.
They could join the likes of Barony Castle Hotel and The Lodge on Loch Lomond which are already signed up as hotel partners and showcasing their deals on the new Scotbreaks site, which launched yesterday (19 May).
Scotbreaks is the the brainchild of an experienced and award-winning team of hoteliers – headed up by founder-owner Jack Graham – who say they dreamed of a website offering only short breaks in Scotland.
It will advertise a selection of deals from across Scotland which will remain ‘live’ for four days from Thursday to Sunday. Scotbreaks will also showcase a ‘featured hotel of the week’ with exclusive special offers. Each of its breaks is offered at a minimum of 25% discount and some even up to a 65% discount on the featured partners’ usual tariff.
To take advantage of these offers, customers are required to select where they want to go, then click on ‘buy now’, which will activate a voucher number to be sent by email, which must be taken with them to the hotel to make sure they receive their exclusive offer. This doesn’t constitute a booking, however, so customers must contact the hotel directly to make their reservation.
Scotbreaks says it will also make a contribution from every voucher sold to selected partner charities. It has announced that the first charity partnership will be with MND Scotland, which works to support sufferers of Motor Neurone Disease and their carers.
The charity is said to be very close to the heart of Graham, whose late father suffered with MND.
Iain McWhirter, head of fundraising and volunteering for MND Scotland, said: “MND Scotland is delighted to have been chosen to be supported by Scotbreaks, and we wish every success for the launch of the website.
“MND Scotland is the only Scottish charity providing support to, and campaigning on behalf of, people affected by MND, as well as funding research into the disease.”
