At London Homestays we greatly appreciate developing long-standing relationships with international agents. We firmly believe that working closely together with our trusted international partners not only makes commercial business sense, but generally results in students being better-prepared and briefed for their stay in London.
If you are an agent who assists students coming to the UK and would like to refer a regular supply of students to London Homestays, we would be delighted to work with you. If you would like to become a registered agent and have not yet completed our online application form, please complete our Agent application form.
Registering as an agent and placing your bookings directly through London Homestays entitles you to a wide range of benefits. We are eager to work with new agents, while properly recognising those partners who have worked with us for longer periods, placing multiple students with us and with whom we have built up successful long-term relationships. This is why we offer two levels of agent partnership:
- Standard: for agents who have just start working with us or with a low volume of bookings
- Gold: for agents who have placed more than 20 bookings with us and have therefore developed a longer term partnership.
Please note – only bookings of 4 weeks and over are applicable for the scheme.
The benefits and commission available to each partner are as follows (subject to change):
|Benefits/Commission||Standard Partner||Gold Partner|
|Commission on homestay bookings (Superior / Zone 2)||£10.00 per week||£20.00 per week|
