Responsibility of the client
The client will be a valued guest in the host family’s home and is expected to act accordingly. The client will be
responsible for all damage caused to the host family and their property. The client will also be responsible for the
equipment and personal property taken by him/her to the host’s premises.
We recommend that the client has travel insurance for possible exceptional situations. Cosy Finland cannot accept late
cancellations and no refund will be made even if the client cancels the service due to medical or other reasons.
Food restrictions, pets and allergies
To enable us to make a perfect choice of the host the food restrictions and allergies should be informed when placing an
inquiry. The hosts know most common allergies and are used to making food accordingly, but they are still not
professionals. Should you have allergy of any type, the same carefulness should be taken as when visiting a friend.
Many Finns are pet-lovers and therefore the host may have a pet or pets. If the guest feels uncomfortable with pets in
visiting home, let us know in inquiry.
Homes in Finland are usually smoke-free. Smokers are expected to follow the desires of the host. Usually the place for
smoking is found outside the house or in balcony.
