About HomeExchange


Travel Anywhere. Live Like a Local. Stay for Free.

  1. Mission


    We connect like-minded travelers, help them travel anywhere, live like locals, and stay for free.

  2. Values


    Respect, courtesy and open-mindedness are core values of the Home Exchange Community. We value authentic traveling and we believe nothing beats the “live like a local” experience.

  3. History


    Started by home exchange pioneer Ed Kushins in 1992 as a printed, mailed book, Home Exchange has grown into a social network and one of the first businesses to adopt “collaborative consumption”.
