SYHA Hostelling Scotland has confirmed it is to launch a new ‘Third Night Free’ offer to encourage guests to enjoy longer breaks north of the border.
Scotland’s largest hostelling association hopes the offer will be particularly appealing to budget conscience ‘new hostellers’ who have heading to Scotland this year. The development coincides with the news that average hotel prices across Scotland have taken a hit, reflecting a tourism market for which affordability is key.
SYHA Hostelling Scotland is offering three nights for the price of two packages at dozens of its hostels throughout key Scottish locations from November until the end of February, excluding New Year.
The offer will allow guests to experience a short break in iconic locations including Aviemore, Glen Nevis and Edinburgh from as little as Â£28 for a bed, or Â£60 for a private room, for three nights.
Louise Nowell, head of sales & marketing at SYHA Hostelling Scotland, said: “Winter is an exciting season in Scotland, with incredible winter sports action at Aviemore, stunning walking at Ben Nevis and fantastic Christmas shopping and nightlife in Glasgow and Edinburgh – to name but a few.
“With the option of private rooms, en-suites and cooked breakfasts at many hostels, hostelling is suited to everyone from couples to groups of friends to families.”
SYHA Hostelling Scotland is a registered charity dedicated to providing low cost, quality accommodation across Scotland.
The charity is committed to promoting the social, environmental and educational benefits of hostelling to all, from families to retired people, couples to groups of friends.
