  • If a student wishes to change families within the period of his/her original booking then an administration fee will apply. Change of family after the initial booking period will be treated as a new placement and a new placement fee must be paid.
  • No airport transfer refund applies if a student cannot locate the driver. The student must call emergency numbers & follow our instructions. We will contact the driver and make sure that student and driver link up. Students that make their own way to the host family without calling emergency numbers and following our instructions will not have their transfer fee refunded.
