No Vacancy Guide is a hub of clever ideas for hoteliers big and small on how to deliver an exceptional guest experience. It’s packed full of marketing, concepts, design, photography and technology tips and tricks from experts around the world.


No Vacancy Guide was founded by husband and wife team Nick and Jess Bonney in Sydney, Australia. Both have worked in tourism, hospitality and advertising for close to 20 years, but what they are most passionate about is travelling the world and working with the accommodation industry.

Jess began her career in hospitality running bars and nightclubs in Sydney, Australia. After studying a media and cultural arts degree she found the allure of advertising and marketing too strong and joined M&C Saatchi as a "suit"/account executive working on some of the country’s largest clients. Jess then went on to become a TV producer, and most recently, senior music producer at the highly successful, Song Zu.

Nick is an award winning creative director, art director, graphic designer, film maker and author. For almost 20 years, he has worked at global advertising and branding agencies across a diverse selection of large and small scaled travel and leisure clients. All the way from a full re-brand and creative strategy initiative for Tourism Australia and airline brands Qantas, Delta, Air New Zealand, Singapore Airlines, Etihad Airways and Virgin Australia through to the development of a key branding and marketing launch for a ski lodge in Japan.
