Homestay Program

Duration: Flexible from 4 weeks until 6 months 

Minimum age: 18

So maybe you have a big trip planned but aren’t sure yet where to stay during your time abroad? You’d like to have some privacy but then again not live entirely on your own? You’d also like to have the convenience of onsite laundry and 3 meals per day? Want to know where you are laying your head before you even land in country? Then our Homestay Program is the best choice of accommodation for you!

Become part of a family, make friends easily and learn about the local “cultural mosaic”, while living in a safe and comfortable environment. Host families come from many ethnic backgrounds, are reliable and friendly and enjoy meeting people from different countries. 

Our Homestay Program includes full board, which means three meals per day – breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You will have your private room and free use of the laundry machine in the house. Furthermore, you get access to the phone landline, a TV, as well as free Wifi. Throughout your stay linens and towels will be provided to you. Often times more than one participant lives with a family, which is a great way to easily make new friends away from home.

During your stay you are encouraged to help the family with everyday tasks, like setting and clearing the table, and you are supposed to keep your room clean. If you want, you can participate in the family’s lifestyle/activities, which surely is great fun and offers a nice opportunity to get an even closer look into the local culture. 

If you wish, we can also organize airport pickup for you so that you don’t have to figure out your way to the Homestay on your own. This is a door-to-door service where we have a specially licensed organization pick you up and bring you to your accommodation. There is no more convenient way for you to reach your destination after a long journey.

All in all, living in a host family is a great way of getting insights into the local culture as well as its diversity and is super convenient for everyone who likes some company while abroad.
