Following both in & outbound exchanges many private visits occur as lifelong friendships are created......your Christmas card list grows longer..... Slide 19 Naturally all other travel costs air fares, additional trips, insurance etc., are borne by the ambassador. Slide 20 Slide 21 As many exchange activities include travel in your hosts vehicle, offering to contribute to fuel costs is suggested. A general rule during an exchange is that Ambassadors offer to take their hosts out for a meal as a way of saying thank you for their hospitality. A small gift for dinner & day hosts should also be offered. During your stay the Friendship Force experience will be enhanced if you do your best to become one of the family by helping out whenever possible. Slide 22 Slide 23 In the unlikely event of any kind of unfortunate situation with your hosts PLEASE do not whinge to your friends, but discuss it with your Exchange Director who will liaise with the host club Exchange Director to settle the matter to the satisfaction of both parties.
