instead of a hotel is just part of the picture. Home exchange offers you the home base many people find lacking when they stay in a hotel. Even a staycation will feel like a real vacation when it is away from home! Additionally, a home offers you space and amenities that no hotel can offer. Home swappers enjoy the convenience of having a kitchen, laundry machines, comfortable sleeping and living rooms, and ample space for their family and their belongings. Many home swappers also value living like a local rather than like a tourist, an opportunity you'll get when you stay in someone's home rather than in a hotel.
