Banbury Host Families

Banbury Host Families are continuously looking to recruit new hosts.

Become a Host

If you have a spare room or two and would like to earn some extra income by welcoming guests into your home then please contact us for further information.

Students are placed in groups of 2-4 per host family (depending on available space) and a typical stay is between 3-5 nights.

We are always interested in hearing from warm, friendly, welcoming new hosts!

Example of a Typical Short Stay Hosting Experience

  • Student groups always arrive of an evening after 18:30.
  • You will be given a time-slot to collect your guests at a pre-arranged meeting point in Banbury.
  • Here you will be introduced by your local organiser for a smooth handover of your guests.
  • The local organiser will also be on hand throughout the stay.
  • Hosts will be given a programme of drop off and collection times, generally being 8 – 8.30 and 18:30 – 19:00 daily.
  • Students will spend their days out on group excursions with their adult leaders and teachers.
  • Predominantly students and guests are French, Spanish and Italian.
  • Hosting is a rewarding and enriching experience and often creates long lasting memories for both host and guest alike.
