Do You Have a Spare Room?
Becoming a homestay host with Britannia is one of the best ways to make extra money from your spare room. We help accommodate thousands of international guests every year in homestays all across London.

Click on Sign Up Now and fill in our online form (you can also call our office on +44 (0)20 7436 7738, and one of our friendly team will contact you to arrange a visit to your home. Our accommodation assessor will view the room(s) you want to use, take some photos and discuss the hosting process in more detail. We will then review the assessor’s notes and (subject to suitability and demand) will start placing guests with you.
The amount of money you can receive will depend on several factors such as the type of room(s) you have, the area you live in and whether you’re willing to offer meals. We will confirm your rate with you after your assessment.
We will contact you soon after you have submitted the sign-up form and let you know how long it will be before we can visit you. Some areas, such as those in Zone 2, are in higher demand than those further out of London, so the amount of time it will take before we can assess you may vary.
Living in London for seven months was one of the most important experiences I have ever had. I am very grateful to Britannia for arranging my accommodation and to Brendan and Brenda for their hospitality. [They] are a lovely host family who know how to socialize with their guests and make them feel welcome

St Giles have used Britannia Student Services to source accommodation for our students for a number of years and have always been met with professional, friendly, flexible staff members who deliver a fast, quality service.
I had very good experience because of the team of Britannia... very friendly and helpful. The room was very nice, clean and big. My flatmates were very friendly. I was very pleased with my stay at Rathbone Place.
