Home Base Holidays

Travel the Home Exchange Way!  

Swap your home for a dream vacation  


Established in 1985, Home Base Holidays has been helping people arrange home exchange vacations for over 25 years.  


Home exchange is a mutual exchange of homes, usually at the same time, for a vacation in your own country or abroad. As home exchange is a direct swap of homes, there are no rental charges for either party, making it a very economical way to travel.


The advantages of a home exchange:  

  • No hotel bills
  • Live like a native - experience a different culture first hand
  • Enjoy all the space, convenience and privacy of staying in a real home
  • Save on car rental costs by exchanging cars
  • More flexibility and freedom
Join Home Base Holidays and travel the home exchange way!
