One of my rooms is a twin room; will I be guaranteed payment for both beds?
No, LILA* cannot guarantee payment for both beds in a twin room.
You will be guaranteed payment for one bed and LILA* will prioritise the room for any twin booking requests. If the second bed is used, you will be paid for both beds. 

If LILA* cannot fill my committed room, can I offer it to another schools?
No, the room must be reserved for LILA* exclusively. This is to allow for emergency placements etc. 

Can I host students from other schools if I have availability?
You must not place students from another school in a LILA* room.
You may be able to host a student from another school in a non-LILA* room. LILA* has placement rules which restrict age/nationality/gender mixes; any non-LILA* students in the household must not breach those placement rules.


 LILA* Prize Draw for summer hosts:

If you host LILA* students between 30th June and 10 August you will be entered into our Prize Draw.

You must host students for a minimum of 4 weeks between these dates to qualify for the Prize Draw. 

The winner will be chosen at random and receive a £500 Trailfinders voucher, redeemable on a post-summer holiday. The prize is non-exchangeable and there is no cash alternative.
