Home exchange is a revolutionary way to travel.
Thanks to home exchange:
- Discover a new way to travel
Forget the steep costs and stressful budgets, forget the impersonal hotel rooms: with HomeExchange you will be living like a local in unique homes. Home exchange will allow you to make memorable encounters and create relations based on trust.
- Go on reciprocal or non reciprocal exchanges thanks to the "GuestPoints" system
The GuestPoints were created to resolve the following problem: imagine that people who live in Germany would like to come to your home, but you wish to go to Italy. Without GuestPoints, a simple reciprocal exchange would be impossible. With the GuestPoints, the German travelers will be able to come to your home in exchange for GuestPoints that you can use to travel to Italy.
Thanks to this system you can organise two types of exchanges on HomeExchange:
- I host the person whose home I am staying in: this is a reciprocal exchange because I am both a guest and a host
- The person whose home I am staying in is not interested in coming to my home, in which case I give my host a certain amount of GuestPoints per night. This amount is determined by the site. This is therefore a non reciprocal exchange because I can either be a guest OR a host thanks to the GuestPoint system.
The value of a home's GuestPoints per night is different for each home. It is automatically calculated by the website's algorithm and depends on several factors: the size, location, the amount of bedrooms/beds,...
