Love Home Swap is the world’s biggest home exchange club.
Love Home Swap currently allows users to book stays at more than 60,000 homes across 160 countries. The site differs from comparable services in that the emphasis is on exchanging homes. Using the “Swap” feature, users can conduct a two-way home exchange, with each staying at the other’s home at a pre-designated point in time. There are two other options for booking on Love Home Swap: Using points or renting. Points are accumulated as you use the site more often, renting out your home or staying in the homes of others. You can then use these points, if you’ve acquired enough, to book another destination. If you have an empty home, you can also rent it out for good old fashioned cash.
Similar to other booking sites, all you have to do is type in where you want to go and the site returns a lengthy list of options. The properties on Love Home Swap are slightly higher-end than what you might find on Air b ‘n b, especially because they’re primarily houses rather than apartments or rooms. Users can use filters to find houses with more luxury amenities such as gardens and pools, or choose whether they prefer to be by the sea or in the city. Each home has a dedicated profile with information about its availability, location and additional features. There are time shares, vacation homes as well as regular houses all listed on Love Home Swap, providing a convenient way to find a place to stay on your next vacation while connecting with a global community of interesting home-owners.
