Home swapping lets stay in a tiny house on a budget
The price of accommodation is one of the most significant barriers for families wishing to travel, especially during popular travel times like summer vacation.
When you home swap, there's no need to break the bank on your summer vacation. Apart from the cost of the yearly membership, you can enjoy unlimited vacation stays all year with no additional cost. You can explore your vacation destination in the most authentic way, living like a local rather than traveling like a tourist.
