Dorset Approved Visitor Accommodation Scheme
In the past, accommodation providers who wished to advertise in the holiday guide, had to be accredited by one of the two national inspection schemes, Visit Britain or the AA.
The Dorset Approved Visitor Accommodation Scheme ensures that a property meets the necessary legal standards, e.g. fire regulations, liability insurance, etc. Although it does not give an indication of an accommodation's quality or facilities, it allows potential visitors to know that at least the accommodation they are considering is a correctly registered and a properly run business.
