Terms and Conditions

Extension to Homestays

It is possible to prolong the stay with an additional payment but a change of family may be necessary, especially during the holiday periods.

Price Reductions

Reduced prices are available to those who return to the same family or to those families who send several children.


In case of illness or accident in England, all treatment (except dental) will be free under the National Health Service on presentation of an EHIC. In case of emergency, and inability to contact parents, Belaf reserves the right to authorise necessary medication, surgery and anesthetics.


Each child or student will be insured for public liability but not against theft, repatriation or cancellation of the stay.
