The cultural exchange itself is financed personally. The costs depend on where you go and the length of your exchange.
The intention is that your partner will provide a place to stay, however this may not be the case on all exchanges. For some situations, it may be necessary to reside in a hotel or hostel, these costs will also need to be covered by the traveler.
You and your partner must make arrangements to cover costs during the cultural exchanges. A possible arrangement would be that costs, particularly food, made in one country would be covered by the host. When the host then travels to their partner’s country, the person now hosting would cover the costs. It is important to decide on these arrangements before leaving on your cultural exchange.
