How much should I pay a host family for a homestay?

One of the most frequent questions asked by our members is "How much should I pay a host family for a homestay?"

Here are some tips to help you find the right host family or homestay, at the right price.

Lingoo hosts set their own prices. So they vary based on their unique offer. You’ll find, for example, opportunities to stay in major cities, rural locations, apartments, large houses, as well as a wide range of activities that hosts can offer guests. These are all priced into each host’s profile.  

To find the right price, start with a clear picture of what you want. This can range from where you’d like to stay to the activities you’d like to include, special dietary requirements, size of host family, and so on. Using this criteria, search Lingoo to compare prices. This will guide you towards an average price for a stay that matches your criteria. From there, read and compare feedback left by previous visitors, not forgetting to review each host’s profile in detail to find the perfect match within your budget.
