YHA Membership and Benefits


The YHA and The Scout Association have a partnership that means members of The Scout Association will pay special prices when they stay as a group and discounted prices when they stay as individuals. The benefits listed only apply to YHA England and Wales but can be accessed by all members of The Scout Association.

YHA accommodation discounts

Group bookings: As a special benefit to Scout Groups, we can offer a 10% discount on group bookings made for 16 or more people through the group reservations team in our Contact Centre. This will be available on the following products:

  • Bed only package
  • Bed & Breakfast package
  • Half-Board – Packed Lunch package
  • Half-Board – Evening Meal package
  • Full-Board package

Individual bookings: Scouts and staff may wish to stay with YHA independently of a group, or in parties of less than 16 people. We have set up a promotional code for them to use to receive a 10% discount on accommodation only. The code you can use is "scouts-24".

How to make a booking

For 16 people or more, please call and book via our Contact Centre on 01629 592700. If you book directly with a hostel, the discount will not be applicable.

For 15 people or fewer, you can make your booking via the YHA website. You must enter the promotional code "scouts-24" before confirming the booking.

Terms and Conditions

All bookings are made subject to terms and conditions, and the person placing the booking warrants that they have the full authority to do so on behalf of all the persons they are making a booking for, and confirms that all such persons are aware of, and accept these conditions.

Before your booking is confirmed and the contract comes into force, YHA reserves the right to increase or decrease prices provided that they notify you in writing in good time prior to delivery of such price increases/decreases. You may cancel your order within 7 working days of this notice if you are unhappy with the price increases/decreases.

YHA Terms and Conditions apply to all bookings.
