Ever wondered what HomeExchangers really think of us? Take a look at these great videos from our members!

Over the last couple of months, we’ve been encouraging our members to send us short films of themselves talking about HomeExchange. Our idea was simple - we wanted to show anyone who is new to the concept of home exchanging just how much fun they could have if they chose to try this amazing way of traveling. And the results of this campaign were fantastic!

Our brilliant members sent in loads of fantastic videos, each sharing their own personal thoughts and recommendations on using HomeExchange.

We’ll be sharing all of these videos in the near future, but for now, we wanted to give you a taster of the films that we’ve received. If you’re considering joining our community, we’d urge you to take a peek at the wonderful travel adventures that await you…

Samira from Sheffield is using her maternity leave as the perfect opportunity to travel the world. Traveling with her partner and 6-month old baby, she shares her thoughts on the joy of borrowing other people’s baby paraphernalia - meaning they can travel that much lighter!

“Our exchange family left us lots of useful stuff like a cot and a highchair, which was useful as our car was already jam-packed!”
