    Financial benefits are deemed as being a combination of reduced commissions and increased bookings. The number of bookings will be calculated by either a comparable time period the accommodation provider has spent as both a 1BB Club Leader and a standard listing, or by comparing the accommodation provider to others analogous in area and price range.

    Should, after six months of continual listing as a 1BB Club leader, the financial benefits for the accommodation provider not out way the costs, 1BB will reimburse the difference in full to their account. This may be used to offset future booking fees or can be paid to your Paypal account on request.
