Update on Visit England Quality Schemes' licence

The Visit England accommodation assessment schemes have been successfully run under licence since 2012. The existing licence ended in March 2017 giving VE the opportunity to review how they operate and grow the schemes. Following a rigorous tender and evaluation process, Visit England has appointed the AA as licence-holder to run all National Quality Assessment Schemes, subject to contract. Of course Shropshire Tourism also run their own full assessment scheme, locally delivered by our own trained assessors but to the same national standards and in most cases at a lower cost too. For more information please contact Jodie on 01743 261919.
