HomeExchange is a revolutionary social network for travelers where members exchange their homes to go on vacation.
Here are 5 advantages of using HomeExchange:
1. Go on reciprocal or non-reciprocal exchanges thanks to the "GuestPoints" system
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 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 organize 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 a non-reciprocal exchange because I can either be a guest OR a host.
Our system opens up many more exchanges so you don't have to find "the perfect partner" to exchange with. You can decide whether you want to host or be hosted for each exchange opening up thousands more possibilities!
