HomeExchange.com competition: holiday in your home from home

We enjoy the freedom that comes with self-catering holidays and have stayed in cottages, villas and campsites all over Europe. Something we haven’t tried is taking a break in someone else’s house.

This is exactly what you can do with HomeExchange.com. Read on for a chance to win HomeExchange.com membership worth £100.

In 2015, 65,000 members made over 130,000 home swaps around the world. And they stayed in those homes for free. You heard me right; no money exchanged hands, just keys. It’s a great idea for families and here’s why:

Travel on a budget

Once your kids turn two flights can start to get pretty expensive. But imagine if that was your only major outgoing. With HomeExchange.com, after you’ve arrived in your destination the only additional costs are food and sightseeing. Oh, and you’ll get tips from your hosts about the best places to go for both of these.

A home away from home

Whatever ‘home’ means to you, you’ll find it listed on HomeExchange.com: boats, motorhomes, tree houses, beach cabins, apartments, mountain chalets, penthouses, houseboats, pagodas, and chateaux. There’s even a house on the beach in South Africa that’s called the Sandcastle and really looks like one!

Stay in your dream destination

You can choose from homes in more than 150 countries and there are some spectacular choices. Here are a few of my favourites:

It’s tourism tax exempt

As no money is exchanged between holiday-makers, they are exempt from accommodation and tourism taxes. When you settle into your exchange partner’s home, you do so as an invited guest, not a paying customer. Everyone’s a winner.

Forge friendships

You exchange with the people whose home you are going to stay in. So you get to know them in advance through their verified profile on HomeExchage.com and secure messaging system. The whole system is built around trust.

So what’s the gig with HomeExchange.com?

You pay an annual subscription of £100 which gives you access listings and verified profiles of other people looking to exchange their homes. You can arrange as many exchanges are you like during that year but even if you only do it once the savings on accommodation are obvious.
