Guests offer rooms for private accommodation and offer owners a useful source of income and can be an interesting experience. However, it is important that the agreement between the owner and the customer is properly documented. This will ensure that both parties know what is expected of them and reduce the scope for disputes. This sub-file contains a Memorandum of Understanding that will be printed on paper and signed by both parties. As many host families are organized online or by phone, we also offer a number of documents for online bookings or brochures: terms and conditions, booking form and confirmation letter. A contract is concluded by submitting a booking form by the customer and sending the confirmation letter from the owner. Terms and conditions of sale are included in the contract. The ancillary documents include the presentation regulations (internal regulations) and the standard rate. These homestay accommodation agreements (Airbnb-Style) and online booking documents are created in plain English to be understood by non-professionals. If legal terms are required, a statement is contained in plain English. In recent years, it has become increasingly common for property owners, particularly in areas with high levels of tourism, to use paying clients for short breaks. The popularity of sites like Airbnb attests to this. Host families offer an alternative to hotel accommodation, with many guests preferring to be in a domestic environment and enjoy interacting with their guests.

Host families are also for exchange students who want to live in an English home and spend time with native speakers.
