Home swaps are fast becoming the way to afford great vacations around the world. Whether you're looking for a relaxing week on the beach or the excitement of a city trip, the concept of swapping homes with another person enables you to enjoy a great experience, at a tremendous value, at your choice of destinations
Unfortunately, many people are not familiar with the home swap concept. And those that have heard about swapping homes are not sure if it's right for them. To help you make a better decision, we've identified several reasons why home swaps offer you the type of memorable vacations you'll never forget.
Finding a hotel, and more importantly, one that fits your budget, may preclude you from going on vacation at all. You can spend hundreds, even thousands of dollars for lodging, which doesn't leave a lot for sightseeing. A home swap all but eliminates that cost. The typical home swap for a week costs less than one or two nights at a hotel. Savings is clearly a major benefit for the home swapper
Most people who arrange a home swap list their experience of living like a local as important as the money they save. You'll travel the less beaten path, eat where the locals eat, shop where they do as opposed to visiting just the tourist traps. A home swap provides you the cultural experience that so many vacationers want from their trips.
If you've ever visited a destination and wondered what living there is really like, nothing does a better job of that than arranging a home swap.
