Booking Homestays on Homadorma

  • How long do I have to stay in a homestay?

    This is up to you and the host you stay with. Either side has the option to terminate in trial week, or after trial week.

    • Trial week. The first week is what we call a "trial week". The host and the student get to know each other, adjust to the everyday life of each other, and try to find a fit. During this week, either side may terminate the homestay agreement. In order to terminate the agreement in the trial week, the host must:
      • Complete booking at homadorma.com
      • Provide the renter a written termination notice including a check-out date
      • Make sure the check-out date is more than 7 days from the date of notice.
    • After trial week. A general rule of thumb is 30-day notice. For more information, please check the "termination" clause in the contract at: Sample Contract

  • What is the Trial Week?

    At Homadorma, we provide a 7-day trial week for student and host to mingle, to see if they are fit for each other. The first week of stay is the trial week.

    In the rare case of misfit, we will help the students in finding new homestay placement.

    The homestay fee is prorated based on the number of nights the student spends in the homestay.
