What does board basis mean, and how does it relate to RO, SC, BB, HB, FB or AI?

Board basis simply means the sort of dining arrangements that you have selected for your holiday. For example you may have selected a hotel which cooks all your meals for you and which are included in the price. Or, you may have selected an apartment with cooking facilities, which means you arrange your own meals.

Board basis meanings and abbreviations are as follows:

  • Room Only (RO) means that no meals will be included in the price you have paid for your accommodation/holiday package.
  • Self Catering (SC) means that no meals are included in the cost of your accommodation/holiday package, but you will be provided with catering facilities in your accommodation to cook light meals.
  • Bed and Breakfast (BB) means that breakfast is included in the price you have paid for your accommodation/holiday package.
  • Half Board (HB) means that your breakfast and evening meal is included in the price you have paid for your accommodation/holiday package. In some cases you can choose to receive lunch instead of breakfast - the hotel will confirm this upon arrival.
