How it works

Guest

Before you book a homestay you can contact the host through our messaging system to check if they are available for your specific dates. Once they confirm they are available, you pay a 15% deposit of the total amount when you book online and the balance directly to your host later. Once you have completed your booking, we will immediately send you a confirmation email with your host’s address and contact information. You must be 18 years or older to book on Homestay.com, or if under 18 years old, you must be accompanied by an adult for the duration of your booking.

Host

It’s free to list on Homestay.com. You must be living in your home during the guest’s stay, and be available to spend a little time with them, to make it a truly authentic and unique travel experience for them with a local. Homestay.com is intended for guests over the age of 18, unless accompanied by an adult for the duration of their booking.
