Our aim is to offer a personal service to all members. Most importantly, our credits system means that you never have to arrange a simultaneous home exchange, giving you much greater flexibility with your holiday plans. Our members are owners of second / vacation homes with properties in over 50 countries around the world.
A few things that make us special:
Non-simultaneous home exchange: The timing of your holiday is not guided by anyone else's schedule. You may want a one-week stay while another member may want a two-week stay at your property. International Vacation Home Exchange makes this possible. You have the option of leveraging your vacation home to see the world.
Wider range of vacation options: Your property can be exchanged with any type or size of property using our credits system and everyone benefits. You do not have to exchange on a like-for-like basis, giving you greater flexibility and more interesting choices. This means, as an example, you can home swap your 5 bedroom Caribbean paradise for a smaller 2 bedroom luxury apartment in London while still having remaining credits to use on another holiday. Enjoy the options of vacationing in a vibrant city, exploring the country from a villa, skiing the slopes, relaxing on the beach, cruising on a yacht, or even an adventurous safari.
4 Star Exchange Verification: Never thought home exchange was for you? Our unique 4 Star Exchange Verification program gives you peace of mind knowing you are part of an exclusive private members club. Guests to your house are like-minded property owners. You are provided with feedback, references, and professional home exchange contracts. Verification includes by Phone Call, Personal Identification, Property ID and confirmation as an experienced Trader / Exchanger. Members can choose with whom they want to trade and often create new friendships.
We all share a great love of travelling and are keen to enable our members to travel the world in comfort and style while saving you thousands of dollars, euros, yuan, pounds, yen, pesos…..
