Getting Started with HomeExchange
Are you new to HomeExchange and wondering how to go about organising your first exchange? Don’t worry, we are here to help! We have composed a “First Exchange Guide” to help you through the steps involved in the hope of making it a bit simpler for you! We wish you some good exchanges! 🙂
1. COMPLETE YOUR ACCOUNT
You will automatically receive 300 Guestpoints!
Complete all fields marked with an asterisk and add a profile picture.
YOUR HOME PROFILE
Complete all fields marked with an asterisk and add at least 5 pictures of your home.
Once you complete both your personal and your home profile you will then be able to contact other members.
WHERE ARE YOU GOING?
Where do you want to go? Enter a destination or search with the map!
If you want to improve your search you can: filter your search (dates, number of beds, wheelchair accessible, baby gear etc), save your search for the future, add other members homes to your favorites and use the inverse search (search for people looking for a home in your city/region).
– Contact the members you are interested in doing an exchange with.
– Before doing so, do not forget to look at their profiles, it may be easier to make an exchange with members who are similar to yourself.
– Indicate your dates, the number of guests and send a personal message (you can also send a default message).
It is highly recommended that you give information about yourself and your family, where you live and how much you would love to be a guest, followed by the desire to organize an exchange with him/her.
4. ORGANIZE YOUR EXCHANGE
RECIPROCAL OR NON RECIPROCAL?
You can organize non reciprocal exchanges using your GuestPoints in exchange of your host’s hospitality
ALL THE INFORMATION YOU NEED IS HERE. THE HOST CAN MODIFY ANY DETAILS BEFORE THEY APPROVE THE EXCHANGE BUT NOT AFTER
Moreover, do not forget, you can contact our team at any time by email at firstname.lastname@example.org for any questionS you may have or any difficulties experienced during the exchange!
We wish you many pleasant exchanges with HomeExchange!!
