Exact prices are not listed because each agency varies as to its pricing structure and the services that are included. Please contact homestay agencies for current prices and detailed information. Be sure to ask about location, language(s) spoken in the home, number of homestay students in the home, and what is included in the price (placement fee? airport pick-up? meals? sales tax?).
