When is the right time to think about your next trip?
The end of summer is nearly approaching and the thought of going back to school or work is getting you a little depressed? Don’t worry, we have a solution for you. Fall is the best time to plan your next travel to that dream destination you always wanted to go.
To increase your chances of finding a home exchange, we advise you to start your search 2 months in advance. Searching homes in advance will give you ample time to find and organize an exchange in your favorite destination. If other members have not defined their travel plans yet, you can initiate the conversation by sending a small introductory message to organize your exchange. In addition, anticipating your next travel early will allow you to save money on transport (like train or plane tickets).
Our Tip: Do a search with dates and the filter “Guest Wanted” to find homes that will be available for your next trip.
