How much is a TV license for a holiday let?

First things first: what exactly is a TV license, and why do you need one for your holiday rental? In the UK, a TV license is a legal requirement for anyone who watches or records live television. This includes not only traditional TV sets but also laptops, tablets, and smartphones. If you’re renting out a holiday home, you’ll need a separate TV license for each property, regardless of whether you’re the one using the TV or not.

So, how much does a TV license cost for a holiday let? The good news is that the cost is the same as for any other non-commercial property, which is currently £159 per year, which covers up to 15 units/homes on a single site. If you have more than 15 homes, there is an additional fee per 5 homes. It’s important to note that this fee only covers the use of live television. If you or your guests plan to watch on-demand services like Netflix or Amazon Prime, you’ll need a separate subscription for each service. If a public road, highway or railway divides your premises, you will need to have a licence for each location.

You will also need a separate TV licence for your if your let adjoins your home and is self-contained. Now that we’ve covered TV licenses, let’s move on to some other interesting questions you may have when starting your holiday let business.
