Instead of spending money on a holiday, you could swap your home for a holiday in someone else’s home. This could save you £100s or £1000s each year. Why go on holiday and leave your house empty, when you could use your home to “pay” for your holiday instead.
How does a home swap work?
Basically you find a home you’d like to stay in and if the owners like your house too, you’ve sorted yourself a free holiday! You stay in their house and they stay in yours. Home swaps or exchanges can happen at the same time or on different dates. Some people even arrange to swap cars.
What if you can’t find a match for the dates and location you want?
Don’t worry as some schemes, such as Love Home Swap, allow you to go at different times and you also have the option to pay your host with points. This means you don’t need to swap which gives you lots more flexibility about when and where you go on holiday. Find out more about the points scheme.
Where can you go?
There are house exchanges in the Scottish Highlands and Islands but also across the UK and all over the world so you aren’t just limited to Great Britain.
Want a 2-week free trial?
Love Home Swap are offering a 2-week free trial for the month of April. If you decide you want to continue your membership, it costs from only £12 a month which is a small amount of money compared to the cost of a 2-week holiday rental.
If you have children and need to take your breaks in the school holidays, think how much money you could save by swapping with other families.
