3 reasons to be a host with Gay Homestays

The title of this week’s blog might be misleading – we’re not trying to persuade you all to become hosts with us. Well, maybe just a little bit. We’ve put together the top 3 reasons why people become hosts with us to show you how much fun being a host is. If doesn’t make you want to be a host, it’ll make you want to stay with one of them!

1. Never stop learning. Travelling is all about finding out about new places and cultures. But you don’t even have to go anywhere to learn if you’re a host. All of our hosts say one of the best things about being a host is meeting people from around the world.

2. Earn some extra cash. The financial incentive was one of the top ones for our hosts, but as you’ll see it didn’t come above the social aspect of having people to stay. Weekends are the busiest times, which means you can earn some spare cash without having a lodger there all the time.

3. Make new friends. Our hosts are a sociable lot, but we hear the travellers are too. Those who opt for staying with a host instead of a hotel are the more sociable type, and the hosts often have great fun with their guests.

We hope we’ve convinced you, and that you’ll join us soon!
