LTI considers the choice of family to be more important than a specific town and reserves the right to place the student in another area if there is no compatible family in the area of first choice. However, if the family we select does not match the requirements as stated on the booking form, students are free to cancel and will receive a complete refund provided the refusal is received no more than 48 hours after the family profile was sent. Once a placement has been confirmed, requests from students for changes of area, dates or course are subject to an alteration charge of €150. LTI must be notified of any problems or complaint before the end of the stay - no retrospective claims against LTI will be considered. Enrolments are accepted on condition that students have no illness or infirmities that they do not mention and explain in advance. LTI reserves the right to place a student with more than one host teacher on a given course and/or change the tutor before or during the stay. LTI also reserves the right to organise a homestay with one family and lessons with an outside teacher if a teacher family cannot be found.
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 LTI 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.
LTI subcribes 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.
The English programme is supplied on the irrevocable condition that the student agrees that if there are any problems they must be notified to LTI 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.

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