The Internet as a source of world-wide reservations for guesthouses and inns has taken off: true, European travelers have only just caught the habit of booking "on-line", but in North America, where the World Wide Web has been in active use for several more years than here, a vast number of bed and breakfast owners are now achieving more than half of their total sales and capturing over 80% of their new clients via the Internet.
Launched just before Christmas 1999 by SBD Travel Services, an "on-line" guesthouse reservations specialist since 1995, Bed-Breakfast-UK.com was the first Internet Directory dedicated exclusively to the promotion of British guesthouses and inns without any diversions, such as flashing advertisements or links to irrelevant services.
