Any students arriving on a Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday will have to pay a daily surcharge of NZ$25 for each extra mid-week day in total $80 per day. This is to cover food and power that the student may use while in the house during the day and in cases where a homestay family member has to take a day off work. In addition, all mid-week arrivals, students MUST book and pay for Airport pick up unless a local based partner is arranging pick up. Students arriving early are encouraged to leave the house during the day to do some sightseeing and also visit the school to take their pre-test. Students arriving mid-week will also not be able to start classes until the following week. Please also note that there will be limited homestay availability for mid-week arrivals as many host families are not willing to take a student not arriving at the weekend.
