Language Travel Ireland

Booking Terms & Conditions

Nina Travel Limited trading as Language Travel Ireland considers the choice of host teacher/host family to be more important than a specific town or region and reserves the right to place the student in another area if there is no compatible host family in the area of first choice. Language Travel Ireland reserves the right to place a student with more than one host family on a given course and also to change the allocated teacher or host family before or during the course if this becomes necessary. Language Travel Ireland also reserves the right to organise a placement with one host family and lessons with an outside teacher in the unusual event that a host family with teacher cannot be found.

Enrolments are accepted on condition that students have no illness or infirmities that they do not mention and explain in advance. In the event of discovery of any serious health problem/contagious illness, mental or physical handicap not disclosed at the time of booking, or criminal or antisocial behaviour on the part of a student, Language Travel Ireland reserves the right to terminate the course and repatriate that student at their own cost and without refund of fees.   


Full fees must be paid at least 4 weeks before arrival in the currency shown on our pricelist.

For methods of payment, please read How to Pay.


If transfers are booked Language Travel Ireland must receive flight numbers and arrival times at least one week in advance otherwise the transfers are cancelled and non-refundable.


No refunds will be given for cancellation, accident, illness, loss of property or for any other reason.  In the event of a legitimate medical or travel emergency, your course fee is protected.  See below.  Terms and conditions apply. 

Language Travel Ireland subscribes all our students to a comprehensive medical and travel insurance called Studentguard+. All our students are automatically covered, as the cost is included in your course fee.   Please contact us for more information on what is covered.  It is the insurance company who will process and decide on the validity of any claims.  

Studentguard+ covers any person aged 7 years or more but less than 70 years who has booked an English programme.  All other students are not covered and MUST take out their own travel insurance.


Alterations of area, date or course often mean cancelling one family and finding another, so we must charge €150 in every case.


Nina Travel Limited and any of the company's officers, directors, employees, or agents of any of them, exclude all liability and responsibility for any amount or kind of loss or damage that may result to a student including injury, damage loss, delay or accident which may happen during the student's stay with the host family, or as a result of activities they take part in during their stay, or whilst travelling to and from the student's home. Nina Travel Limited nor the host family is responsible for students' personal possessions. It is an explicit condition of enrolment that students accept full financial responsibility for any damage caused by them to the host family’s property.  


The English programme is supplied on the irrevocable condition that the student agrees that if there are any problems they must be notified to Language Travel Ireland during the stay. If we are not notified before departure, or the student signs the hour sheet 'satisfied' on departure, no complaint will be considered.   

The laws governing the provision of these English programmes shall be the laws of the Republic of Ireland. Where these Terms are presented in a language other than English, such translations are used for convenience only and the English language version of these Terms shall take legal precedence. 


  • We recommend that students bring at least €75 spending money per week. EU students travelling to an EU country are advised to get the European Health Insurance Card.
  • Please contact the host family by phone or email at least one week before your stay. Our host families are keen to learn more about you, your food preferences, your level of the language and your expectations of the stay. This will help them better prepare for your stay.
  • Transfers: If you have ordered transfers, please make sure we receive your travel details at least one week before your arrival so that we can organise the transfer for you. If you have not booked any transfers, please let your host family know your approximate time of arrival. If they have not received this information from you, they will expect you after 18.00hrs.
  • Un-accompanied minors: Ryanair does not accept unaccompanied children under the age of 16 years old.   Aer Lingus allows children from 12 years old to travel unaccompanied; young passengers between the ages of 12 and 15 inclusive will be accepted on the basis that they are travelling as an adult and their parents or guardians will be required to sign a (Form of Indemnity) at the airport on the day of departure confirming that Aer Lingus has no responsibility to provide special assistance.  
  • All flights and travel documentation are the sole responsibility of the student or his/her parents if a minor.  Language Travel Ireland cannot accept responsibility for errors, mistakes or delays in relation to such documentation.  
  • Families in a foreign country may not have the same way of living you are used to at home. There may be different rules, the food will be different, as well as the living conditions. Please prepare yourself and be willing to accept cultural differences in order to get the most out of your stay.
  • Smoking: Please be aware that smoking is forbidden in public areas (bars, restaurants etc.) in many countries. Very often, our host families do not allow smoking in the house. If there are smokers in the host family they will often smoke outside or only in a specific area in the house.

Marine, Age 24, France

My teacher encouraged me to talk and increased my confidence.  My family was very friendly so I felt included in the family.

Anna, Age 55, Italy

I was completely satisfied with my experience.  It’s my first time I had an English language vacation but I am sure I will have another one.
