Procedure for Payment in Homestays
The student pays the first month or part thereof directly to the head of the household upon arrival in euros. Upon payment students should request a receipt.
Important - Payment in euros must be made in cash. No credit cards, personal checks, or American Express traveler's checks will be accepted. Students do not receive housing charges on their e-bill.
Students may decide to exchange AMEX traveler's checks/US dollars at the airport upon arrival, as most banks do not allow ATM withdrawals above 300€ on the same day. Students are responsible for carrying or having access to the first month's rent upon arrival.
Rent for the second and remaining months should be paid to the head of the household by the 3rd of the month.
Note: Rent is assessed from a student's arrival at the homestay until their final departure. Students' rent is not discounted if a student is traveling or misses included meals.
