Have your cake and eat it too this holiday season, as Love Home Swap makes swapping homes and planning a luxurious getaway easier than ever, with a new Swap Points scheme. A world-first within the social travel sector, Swap Points makes coordinating home swaps even simpler, as members no longer need to match exact dates or destinations with each other. Instead they can now pledge time in their property in exchange for points, which they can use to holiday in stylish homes of their choice for free across the globe.
From Iceland to Istanbul, Britain to Brazil and everywhere in between, Love Home Swap has seen huge growth in the past two years and is now the world's biggest home exchange club. Saving swappers an average of $3,813 each trip and with 46,000+ inspiring properties listed in 150 countries worldwide, Love Home Swap is your ticket to travelling the world without spending a cent on accommodation.
'Love Home Swap was created to eliminate the enormous hotel bills that often eat up most of your holiday budget," said Debbie Wosskow, who founded Love Home Swap in 2011 after struggling to find accommodation for family vacations that offered the comforts of home, without costing the earth. After watching the movie, 'The Holiday", starring Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet, she realised there was a huge gap in the market for a stylish, easy to use international home swapping website.
'Whether you want to sun yourself in a Thai villa, experience a white Christmas in Whistler, or swap Sydney for the Sunshine Coast this summer, the launch of our new Swap Points scheme eliminates what can be the trickiest part of home swapping - coordinating simultaneous swap dates - and really opens up our amazing network of homes to our members."
Additional new features on LoveHomeSwap.com include a Tripfinder search tool tailored to your preferences, making it super-easy for members to find the homes and locations they're looking for, without spending hours scrolling through property listings that may not be available on their chosen dates. Members can also use Love Home Swap's new Rentals System, where they can rent out their own home or rent from thousands of others.
'When we launched, our aim was to build the largest and most dynamic home exchange network in the world, where members can holiday in beautiful homes around the world for free. We're once again revolutionising the home swapping market by allowing our members complete flexibility to decide where and when they would like to travel," said Debbie. 'We provide access to more than 46,000 amazing properties in every corner of the globe, and our members can choose to travel however suits their needs: Swap, Rent or Points," she added.
