Top 5 Legal Issues for Glamping Business And Unique Holiday Rental Owners

What legal issues do I need to consider, how do I structure my Terms of Service and what's included in a Privacy Policy? These are a few common questions I'm asked by concerned business owners who I support in my programs. Obviously, as I'm not a trained lawyer I can not give advice in this area, however, that doesn't mean sticking our heads in the sand is a good idea either.

With the constantly changing COVID-19 situation around the world, it is clear that we are collectively facing one of our biggest challenges. A challenge that will result in many of us making changes to our way of life and the way our businesses operate.
