B&Bs for Vets Program

FAQ
1. What do I need to do to qualify for a free room?

Anyone who has a valid Military ID from the United States Government qualifies:
– Active Duty
– National Guard
– Reserves
– Honorably Discharged Veterans

2. What should I do if there are no rooms available in my area?

Our goal is that hundreds of innkeepers will participate in the B&Bs for Vets program, offering rooms coast to coast. However, we know that in some cases there may not be one available within in your immediate area. We hope veterans will understand that there are a limited number of rooms, but innkeepers are adding new ones all the time. Be sure to check back often to see if one has become available within your travel distance.

3. How do I reserve a room?

Once you see an Inn/B&B property listed on the BandBsforVets.org site, be sure to contact that inn directly using the method in their offer description to apply or reserve your room. It’s important that you work with the innkeeper to finalize all the details. Many will require a credit card for confirmation, and standard cancellation policies will apply.

4. What should I do if I have to cancel my stay?

It is important to note that all participating B&Bs will enforce the cancellation policy for their inn/B&B offer. That means you may be asked to offer your credit card in order to confirm your free stay and in the event that you don’t show up for your stay and don’t cancel prior to your stay, your credit card may be charged. Remember, there are many vets who will gladly take your place if you need to cancel, and most innkeepers have a waiting list of vets they can call in the event of a cancellation. As soon as you know you can’t make it, be sure to contact the innkeeper directly to inform them. And remember, if you don’t cancel within the time stipulated on the inn/B&Bs cancellation policy, it’s possible you will be charged for your stay. Each innkeeper handles cancellations differently.
