More good reasons to arrange a home exchange  


Expat Home Exchange

Expat Home Exchange

Whether it is to visit friends and family back at 'home' or to try out a country before a permanent move - home exchange is the perfect choice!

"I have a franchise from Spain and my company is called Andycraft Eu Ltd. The head office is in Spain in Malaga and I have been asked to move to Spain preferably to live, but failing that at least for one to two months to develop the website in conjunction with the Director of the Spanish company, I would like to trial it out by exchanging for a month or two before making a permanent commitment."

Hobbies & Events

Home Exchange is the perfect way to visit events or partake in hobbies all around the world. A good example of this is the upcoming London 2012 Olympics. 


"We are both interested in vintage motoring and have had a hobby of restoring old cars for many years. These cars have given us a lot of pleasure in their use and have introduced us to some wonderful people over the years. There are many vintage motoring events in England especially in the Hampshire area, that we would like to visit again. As well, we have relatives who live in Meonstoke and we are keen to find an exchange home in Hampshire in that general vicinity."

New baby?

Expecting a New Baby in the Family?

Events such as a new baby in the family can require an extended stay. This could work out very expensive if booking a hotel or apartment - so why not try a home swap!  


"Having arranged a swap to New Zealand, we are now looking for an exchange to Moorestown, New Jersey, in June 2011 as our daughter who lives there is expecting a baby during June."

Doing research?

Academic / Research?

Does your work or studies require you to travel overseas? Are you undertaking research: University? Journalism? Writing a book? Home Exchange could be a perfect fit.  


"We are a semi-retired couple of academics who lived and worked in Adelaide during the 1990s. We now visit Adelaide quite often to continue our research with former colleagues at the University of South Australia, and we are looking for accommodation for all or part of the periods June to August 2011 and October to December 2011."
