STAA – Short Term Accommodation Association


STAA Short Term Accommodation Association

What is the STAA?

The Short Term Accommodation Association (STAA) is a UK trade body representing the entire short-term rental sector, from multinational platforms to individual hosts, and everything in between.

We started life as a group of seven companies concerned by the direction that the conversation around short-term rentals in the UK was taking, and came together in March 2017 to give the industry a single voice.

Now we represent 13 companies and we have opened up membership to individual hosts and property managers.


What are the benefits of being an STAA member?

As a member of the STAA you receive a number of benefits.

Our weekly newsletter will give you all of the essential information you need about the industry, including any upcoming change in the rules, and whether certain councils are looking to enforce against rentals.

You can also access our host guidance page, which collates all of the need-to-know information to make sure that you are operating within the law.

Once a quarter you can listen to free webinars which cover all of the industry developments over the last three months, and where you can ask our policy experts any questions you might have.

Finally, you can access our affiliate marketplace to find suppliers to help your operation, and access our accreditation scheme at a discounted rate, giving your property a quality kitemark that will boost credibility and sales.
