In the rare event of an accident during your stay, all official registered Homestay hosts carry £5 million public liability insurance for your peace of mind.
All of our listed properties have been inspected by a member of the Homestay team to ensure they meet with Homestay guidelines on comfort and cleanliness and meet Isle of Man fire safety regulations.
We strongly recommend every visitor has appropriate comprehensive travel insurance in place prior to travelling to the Isle of Man.
Homestay properties can only accommodate a maximum of 6 guests at any one time, and are not permitted to use guest bedrooms above the 1st floor, or below the ground floor.
Always check to ensure that your chosen accommodation is registered prior to booking.
Prior to making any payment, we encourage all visitors and hosts to have some form of booking agreement in place. At the very least, this should provide details of the accommodation being offered, the dates agreed, the total amount due, how and when payments are to be made, cancellation policies, plus any additional details as agreed between the visitors and the hosts.
If you’re booking directly with a host, they will usually request a deposit at the time of booking, this would normally be a maximum of 20% of the total amount due. All deposits should be acknowledged by email or letter.
You should pay the remainder of the balance to your host in cash after having had the opportunity to view the accommodation. For bed and breakfast guests, the final bill or invoice should be settled in cash the day after arrival. Self-catering guests should pay the final balance in cash on arrival, unless agree otherwise in writing at the time of booking.
Unfortunately, sometimes our plans change. If that happens to you please contact your Homestay Host as soon as possible. Guidance for Homestay Hosts recommends that...
For a cancellation by a visitor up to 4 weeks prior to arrival, providing a suitable alternative booking has been secured, we recommend the full deposit should be refunded (less any bank charges/fees incurred).
For a cancellation by a Host at any time, all fees paid must be refunded.
We always recommend visitors and hosts are clear on the cancellation policy, prior to paying any deposit. This is more relevant that ever with COVID19 affecting recent events worldwide.
We also recommend all visitors have appropriate travel insurance in place to cover their visit to the Isle of Man.
