Most people are initially attracted to home swapping by the huge savings afforded by free accommodation. It allows them to travel more frequently and widely and to experience a virtual network of hundreds of "second" homes and new friends across their country and around the world.
But home swapping is much more than cheap travel. It provides a holiday experience that is not available through traditional travel options. Home swapping is the authentic travel experience. With home swapping, one lives as a local amongst the community.
Home swapping allows spontaneity and excitement, playing dress up with different lifestyles: a Parisian houseboat, a chalet in St. Moritz, a beach shack on the Australian coast, a warehouse apartment in New York? The only limitation is your imagination!
Home swapping allows familiarity and ease: visiting favourite places whilst enjoying the comfort of being in a home away from home.
Home swapping is responsible. By adopting home swapping as your travel choice, you are contributing to sustainable and ethical tourism.
Home swapping can meet all your travel needs: whether it is sporting events, family get-togethers (in different parts of Australia or the world), tracing your family heritage in distant continents, skiing, wine, art, music festivals, exotic beach holidays, or round-the-world trips. Home swapping provides you with a home whenever you are away from your own!
Home swapping is egalitarian, whether you have a penthouse or modest bungalow. Comparing houses is not like comparing rated holiday accommodation. Whatever the price tag an estate agent would attach to properties, a home is a home, where people live, entertain and retreat from the world. They are intimate spaces that feel loved, and are welcoming.
Beyond the "jet set" lifestyle of frequent holidays to amazing homes and places, are the friendships forged and sense of connection of being part of the unique global community of HomeLink.
