If the high cost of a hotel rooms has kept you from booking a holiday or business trip, then gayhomestays.com might be your answer. It's a recession-born web-based business that matches travellers in need of affordable accommodation with homeowners who have spare rooms to rent. In addition their site also lists gay guesthouses, B&B's and tourists apartments.
"Gay Homestays offers people a way to save money when they travel, and also gives people a chance to earn money at a time when many are worried about how to pay their mortgage and how to pay for holidays," says it's owner, Dave Chambers.

As a 'Host' you quote a price, which you determine and wait for someone to book your room. To become a host you must register your details with Gay Homestays to be set up with a room profile page where you will be able to manage your bookings and room availability.
As a traveller, your hosts can provide you with great tips and advice about their city, where the best night-life is, the best restaurant to dine or where to meet interesting people and really get a feel for the city's unique charm.
It's convenient and easy to book accommodation, just enter your dates and the place you want to go, scroll down the page till you see something you like in your price range, and in just two clicks your booking request has been sent. Once host availability is confirmed you can contact them to arrange your check-in time or maybe start a conversation.
The best holidays are the ones where you make friends for life. At least that's what the founder of Gay Homestays Dave Chambers thinks, and that was the inspiration for the business. Gay Homestays has created a global LGBT accommodation network for people who want to travel at low cost, experience other cultures and meet new people.
"Gay Homestays offers a social networking experience whilst travelling and is similar to that of couchsurfing.com" says Chambers ,"...but in addition we offer our hosts a financial incentive to accommodate traveller. In return guests are happy because they have the opportunity of learning something about the culture and get great tips about the local nightlife, best restaurants and the most interesting museums."
With Gay Homestays you can book cool and comfortable accommodation, in and around the gay scene, in amazing locations all around the world.
