Swap homes for free accommodation & unlimited holidays worldwide

What others are saying about home exchange

"We have house swapped 10 times in the UK and abroad and they have been fantastic holidays... somehow being in each others' houses makes you extra respectful."  Full article
"If I rent a hotel room, I am a tourist. I prefer to exchange flats because, that way, not only can you travel two or three times a year, but you can live in exactly the same way as a person from a different country..."  Full article
"It works. And not because it's cheaper, but because it is an entirely new experience. Not just a house swap, but a car swap, a friend swap - in fact a life swap."  Full article
