What is a Home Exchange you ask? It is the latest way to travel the world and make new life long friends, all while saving the money you would normally spend on a hotel room.
The concept is simple. You like to vacation in new destinations weather these are exotic, quaint, remote, or filled with attractions. So does everyone else. So what if someone could stay at your home while you stayed at theirs. Even better what if you have a second home, or are away or business from you primary home and want to save up credits for your home exchange vacation later on – a non-simultaneous exchange? You can do that too. So that way if you have a small vacation condo you can exchange this out several times and save up credits for a large villa in Paris when you want to take your vacation. This is a unique concept that allows home exchange members to trade credits amongst themselves.
Why Home Exchange.

2. Meet new Friends When making a home exchange you get to know about the other family, share interests and hobbies, learn about the area and plan a unique vacation.
3. Money. You can save a great deal by doing home exchanges.
