Love HomeExchange? Discover how to become an Ambassador
Our ambassadors are our spokespeople out in the community. HomeExchange Ambassadors are avid home exchangers, who help spread the word and bring the community to life.
They are the voice of the Community, and they share their personal experiences with HomeExchange to encourage people to join and confidently start exchanging their home. The Ambassadors help us build the future of travel by celebrating home exchange as the most authentic, human way to travel.

If you don’t meet all of these qualifications but would still love to become an Ambassador, fill out the form and tell us why.

Often, the Product Team looks for avid Members who wish to try the new features of the app and/or website. Ambassadors who wish to can do UX tests with the Product team, provide feedback or become beta testers of the newest features. They are also keen to try new formats and build the future of HomeExchange together.
Become the admin of our Community Forums (on Facebook Groups) and be responsible to keep the conversation up, answer to the questions of members, welcome new members who join and help create a positive, neutral and welcoming attitude, within the line of the group rules/guidelines. Currently, 18 amazing Ambassadors help manage our Facebook Groups.
Journalists often ask us to get to interview a member in order to get the true feeling of HomeExchange. When we receive a request from the Media, we contact Ambassadors on that region and ask who is available and willing to take part.
Feel free to tell the world how amazing HomeExchange is! Ambassadors can organize and host a Member meetup in their city or region. Meetups are great to meet other HomeExchangers, welcome the newbies and share travel experiences. HomeExchange will help you send the invitation, organize the logistics and provide gadgets for the event.
Your participation and help are extremely valuable but there is no obligation for you. When we have a new opportunity (it could be an interview in your area, a meetup, a newbie who wants to meet in person a real HomeExchange Member) we will get in touch with you and you will be able to accept or decline the request.
You can have personal contact with the HomeExchange team. Be able to chat with the different teams and discuss together your suggestions and ideas on how to improve HomeExchange

We know that what you like the most is traveling and to help you to continue traveling, it is usual that we grant Ambassadors some GuestPoints as a token of appreciation for their help.
"When I experimented home exchange for the first time, it really was a revelation! It's impossible to go back, so from now on I will definitely be using home exchange for all of my vacations! Naturally, I am talking about home exchange with my peers, and why not help the members on the site address their fears and reply to their questions? Every day it is a great pleasure to rediscover the little community of Ambassadors!"
Ambassador since 2016
"I have been a HomeExchange Ambassador since 2015 and this “nomination” followed a report on the home swaps that we agreed to do for the TV news of France 2 channel. We no longer conceive of going on vacation without home exchange! Since then, I have always been keen to promote HomeExchange and the site. I have been helping organise a few meet ups for new members or anyone hesitating to embark (in Paris and Bordeaux). I’m quite active on social media, and I had the nice surprise of being selected admin of the French Facebook group. Such a happiness!"
Ambassador since 2015
"In addition to the community chat where I respond to members' queries every day in my spare time, along with the other Ambassadors, to best guide the members in their use of the site, I go over comments and bugs and even test new functionalities on the site! I also promote the site whenever possible (vie internet or by distributing flyers in my local area etc). In April 2016, I organised the first GuestNight in Rouen, along with the HomeExchange team."
