Here at Homestay.com we believe homestays are the perfect solution for international students on Erasmus. Erasmus allows you to experience first hand other European cultures, to live with fellow Europeans and of course improve your language skills. It may well be one of the most enjoyable experiences from your time in University, with memories lasting long beyond graduation. If you’re wondering why you should choose homestay, keep reading......
When you stay with a host family you really get to know the place. Sure, you can read all about the tourist trail online, but you need to stay in a real home to truly live and breathe your new city. Our hosts will share with you an insight into local life that student residences just don't offer.
Looking for Erasmus accommodation for a few months at time can be difficult to organise from your home country. Monthly rentals can be hard to secure without documentation, references or transferring deposits via expensive bank transfer. With Homestay.com you can view photos, local area information, read reviews and chat with potential hosts from the comfort of your home. Once you are happy you've picked the right host you can book online and pay your host on arrival. We do charge a small booking fee to use our service but this brings you peace of mind that your accommodation is now sorted.
Moving to a new University can be daunting, you're in unfamiliar surroundings and you’ll most likely miss your family and friends. Even more so if it's your first time living away from home. Beat the homesickness with a homestay and you'll be sure to feel at home straight away. Your host family will be there to welcome you and assist you with all those questions you'll certainly have, what's the best way to get to University, cheapest place to shop etc.
Trying new foods is part and parcel of living in another country. Many of our hosts are open to providing evening meals for you during your stay allowing you to sample the local food and brush up on your language skills.
