In HomeExchange, you have two types of exchanges: a Reciprocal Exchange, where you exchange homes with another Member, or a Non-Reciprocal Exchange where you receive GuestPoints for welcoming a Member into your home without traveling to theirs.
There are several ways to arranged your exchange here are a few options:
John from Colorado is traveling to Marseille on his backpacking trip and has planned to stay at Gabrielle’s home. Gabrielle does not want to visit Colorado though, she would prefer to spend her time in Croatia. John can give Gabrielle GuestPoints for his stay at her home and Gabrielle can then use these GuestPoints towards her stay in Croatia.
John lives in Colorado and wishes to travel to Marseille. Gabrielle lives in Marseille and is planning to visit Colorado. John and Gabrielle can do a reciprocal exchange, at either the same time or at different times. If John wants to visit Marseille for the summer and Gabrielle wants to visit Colorado during the winter, this is still considered a reciprocal exchange.
John wants to visit Marseille for a weekend while backpacking across Europe. Gabrielle is planning to visit Colorado for a week to go skiing. John can ask Gabrielle for GuestPoints in exchange for the extra nights she would like to stay in his home.
