What is a Homestay?

What is a homestay? We’re sure everyone knows by now, but in case you don’t, we thought we’d shed some light on the newest travel craze.

A homestay is when you stay in the home of a local person when you travel abroad. This can be when you go abroad for a holiday, on business, or you might have come across homestays in the form of school foreign exchanges. If you or your friends went on foreign exchange as part of a language course (like French) at school, then they would have stayed in the house of a French family while they were over there. When the French exchange student came to England for example, they’d stay with an English family.

Foreign exchange is a great example of why homestays are a good thing. They are used to teach people things. Students who go on homestays abroad learn a lot about the language and culture of the other country. They actually get to speak to local people, instead of a multi-lingual receptionist in a hotel.

Gay Homestays provides a unique experience because travellers can stay with like-minded people who often live in and around the gay scene.  Alternatively, some hosts rent out their spare apartment or holiday home, which is ideal for those travellers who would prefer their own space. Travellers also use homestays to find out about the culture and make the most of their host’s local knowledge. Then again, some people use it merely as a base when on a business trip.

Although it’s less impersonal than using a hotel because you may be sharing the space with your host, you are both a guest and a customer, which means you can be as sociable or as private as you like.  You will have your own key,  can come and go as you please and it is up to you if you choose to befriend your host or not.

Really, homestays cater for all kinds of people, and all kinds of travel adventures.  We’re going to let you know what travellers get up to when they use Gay Homestays in the next few weeks, so watch this space!
