A House Swap - A Cheap Vacation That's Not Just in the Movies:
It may surprise you to discover that a big chunk of this story was not fiction at all. House swapping is the hottest new cheap vacation planning idea for comfortable visits to UK, the USA and all over Europe. And HomeExchange.com can help you organize it safely, easily and for virtually nothing.
As far as the romance part is concerned, there you are on your own.
What is HomeExchange.com and How Can It Help With Cheap Vacation Planning?:
How does HomeExchange.com work?:
Once you register and pay for one of three levels of membership (the Silver membership at about $99 is the most popular), your house is listed and described - usually with a selection of the best pictures you can provide - on the HomeExchange.com website.
When you are ready to plan your vacation, you search the website for the location and type of house that interests you and contact members in that area who may want to exchange homes with you. After that the arrangements are up to you. There are no other fees.
Is it safe?:
While your house is shown online, your address and your personal details are not - nor are they revealed in the initial stages of contact between the prospective house swappers. How much personal information you reveal, and when, is up to you.
HomeExchange.com also provides suggested model agreements so that you and the other party to the exchange can set some ground rules.
What about my dog? My car?:
If you are making your car available, or would like the use of a car, you can talk about that when you make arrangements with the other party. Usually, other driver coverage for your car is easy to arrange.
Are there houses available in cool places?:
What are the benefits?:
But possibly the biggest benefit is the ability to live comfortably like a local in nice properties all over the UK.
Visit HomeExchange.com, explore the website to see what it's all about and join up to take advantage of this great cheap vacation idea whose time has finally come.
