HOW IT WORKS - HOSTS

INTRODUCTION

Hosting international students, interns and tourists is a great way to earn a bit of extra income, learn about new cultures and welcome someone into your home as part of the family. Our friendly team handles everything from dealing with the client through to the payment, so all you need to do is welcome your guest with open arms when they arrive.

We have a diverse range of hosts, from all different backgrounds across zones 1 – 4 in London, many of whom keep in touch with their students long after they depart. Hosting is a very worthwhile and rewarding experience, and registering with HFS London; a trusted, quality, British Council registered provider, couldn’t be easier.

Sandy or Gaynor will then pop round to have a chat, to get to know you and have a look around. They will also take some photos so we can compile a profile to send out to students, schools and agents.
