Home Hosting Report



You are invited to be part of this fund raising scheme

December 2010 Report

I am happy to report that BPW Canada has the Accommodation website listed in their Newsletter on their website.  BPW UK has put the link on their website front page.  BPW South Africa is promoting it especially for the Rugby World Cup and I am just waiting for BPW Australia’s response.  Carolyn Savage promoted the opportunity at the recent BPW Samoan Conference. The Federation Presidents have expressed their delight in this scheme.  New Zealanders are well liked amongst the BPW International members.


Host Registrations are coming in slowly and it would be great to have more throughout New Zealand.  We have had an enquiry for eight days in February 2011but there is little available for that month currently.  We have already had two BPW International visitors in Auckland during October/November.  It is a pity they didn’t know about our Home Hosting.


The exchange rate is in the favour of travellers coming to New Zealand.  We have an amazing opportunity on our hands.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1Q       I don’t know what I will be doing in a year’s time.  Do I need to register this early?
