Our families offer Bed & Breakfast (BB) or Bed, Breakfast & Evening meal (HB). The Bed & Breakfast package includes a continental style breakfast consisting of cereal, toast, tea/coffee etc. Half Board includes continental breakfast and a cooked dinner containing a main course of meat/fish with pasta/rice/vegetables/salad followed by a dessert or yoghurt or fruit.
Meals are usually taken with the family unless otherwise arranged and special diets such as a vegetarian, halal and other requirements can be catered for but they must be specified at the time of booking.
The student can use the house as a family member and there is a laundry service available once a week. These are typical homestays that offer all the general comfort. The majority of overseas students find this package ideal as it combines reasonable prices and quality accommodation within a convenient location.
Homestays can provide: a dedicated bathroom for the students, or a shared bathroom with one other student of the same gender, or shared with the family. Still, the quality and appointment of the home is of a higher calibre.
Superior homes offer the same accommodation package as General homes in terms of travel times, meal plans and laundry.
For most students, coming to Britain is a first time experience away from home. Therefore, Hosts International offers a full range of transport services for individuals and groups. All our transport services are offered in modern, comfortable, clean and fully insured vehicles with competent drivers who are sensitive to the welfare needs of overseas students.

This service is available from any local airport or railway station to any destination. We use our own drivers offering a clean, efficient and safe service. The driver will always carry the name of the student he is collecting on a board and will have full details of your destination. We operate a 24 hour emergency line that students can contact at any time.

BECOME A HOST FAMILY
Do you have a spare bedroom available? Would you like to share your culture and experiences with others while learning about theirs?
If so, why not register with us as a host family. Many thousands of families already offer accommodation to international students throughout Britain. They do it not only for the financial benefit, but also because it broadens their experience and is often the start of lifelong friendships.
Our students are all international students and staying with a host family gives them a great opportunity to experience a new culture and improve the English language.
The experience can be rewarding for both students and hosts alike.
You as hosts can be assured that students are selected with great care and are expected to abide by your own customs and have reasonable expectations. We work with only the leading schools, mostly British Council accredited, therefore the quality of the students you may accommodate and host will be of a certain calibre.
The financial rewards for your services as homestay hosts will be offered by Hosts International once a week.
