Many students have plans to travel to their home country during school breaks. It could be summer, Christmas, or other time of the year. During this period, the students still would like to keep the room so that they could continue living here upon returning from vacation.
It's always important for the student to give the host 30-day notice before the travel plan is set. The student could request the host to quote a "vacation rate". Upon receiving the new quote, the student may accept or reject it. When the vacation rate is rejected, the termination policy applies. The student may then move out at the end of the term, and find a new homestay before returning to the country.
