Yes, we welcome residents to sign up as a host. To sign up, there is certain criteria and regulations that you must follow, but being a homestay host makes a truly authentic and unique travel experience for the visitor.
Our hosts vary and include young couples, retired couples, families (mother-father-children), single parent families and hosts who live alone.
If you have a spare room in your house that's full of junk and gathering dust, a family member has left home or you are going on holiday and wish to rent out your property, sign up as a homestay host today and start hosting guests in your home!
How do I sign up?

Once the property has been passed we will then list it on our website www.iomttbreaks.com if you have availability.
Your property details: We encourage you to supply us with a description and images of the property to support your listing on our site, this will give the guest an idea of what is available.
We will also advertise the property via out social media outlets but you are free to also advertise your property elsewhere.
Guests have the choice to contact you directly or they can book via Regency Travel (£10pp booking fee applies on top of your fees), if someone bookings via us we will put you and guest in touch once the booking has been confirmed.
IMPORTANT: If you have no availability you must inform us so that we can remove your listing from our website.
How do I get paid?
Within the Homestay Host notes there is a guide to how much you should charge, if you are offering bed & breakfast basis you must charge per person per night and per property per night for self-catering.
At the time of confirming the booking, a deposit totalling 20% must be received from the guest, the final balance is then paid within 24 hours of the visitor arriving at your property.
