Our story started in the early ’90s with the rise of the internet and personal computers. HomeExchange.com revolutionized the experience by becoming the first organized home swap service online.

In 2006, the Nancy Meyers romantic comedy “The Holiday,” starring Kate Winslet, Cameron Diaz, Jude Law, and Jack Black, featured the site in a blockbuster. This much-loved romantic comedy considerably increased the awareness and popularity of HomeExchange, as a true pioneer of the sharing economy.

Based on the fundamentals of trust, authenticity and free hospitality, home exchange was ready to go to the next stage. Emmanuel Arnaud and Charles-Edouard Girard, both avid exchangers themselves, and founders of the home exchange platform GuestToGuest, decided it was the right moment to offer a viable alternative to traditional commercial accommodation. From the 2017 acquisition of HomeExchange.com, teams began to work closely together on a unified platform to offer to their united communities a new website to exchange homes easily, seamlessly and safely.

The new HomeExchange was born, and with over 400,000 homes in 187 countries, there are vacation opportunities for everyone.
