Possibly this one? If you're putting them up, place it on their bedside table.
Or this at the door:

You could always pin it on me, so what props might you need? I can do photos, a smelly sock (just the one, mind), my dog-eared recipe folder open at page "best fondues ever" backed with photocopies of subsequent arrest details.

We're here to help. As ever.

No, not ga ga...just a feasible excuse as a way of not having unwelcome/uninvited visitors.

Give it to 'em straight.

Here, like this :
A woman has taken to the internet for advice after a friend charged her hundreds of pounds to spend five nights in her home.
Posting on Mumsnet, the user explained that she had arranged back in January to visit an old friend and her husband, who live in Southern Italy, along with her own husband and two children.

However, just five days before they were due to leave, the friend then informed her she would like to be paid £800 – plus the cost of food – to host them.
“I’m shocked and deeply upset,” said the woman
Woman 'shocked' after friend charges her '£800 plus food' to stay at her house

5 days! No wimping out, now.

What a kicker, eh?

I remember when I was expecting my daughter we lived in a small 2 bedroom house outside Vancouver. My in laws decided they wanted to come to stay with us for a few weeks for the birth. I very kindly sent them a ton of info on hotels and B&Bs and places they could eat, all within a half hour drive to us. They never did come.

Maybe just email and say that you're looking forward to seeing them and where will they be staying?

I wouldn't mind so much if we had seen them regularly over the years when we were in easy driving distance in the UK...

Had exactly same problem when I lived in The Algarve , when they called or e-mailed , I would send them our address & info them to hire a car.

Right, that's it.

All three of us are coming to stay at yours for a month. Plus the cat.

Fascist.
