At HomeExchange, building a community based on trust is important to us. With that in mind, we offer free verification for all Members. The simple verification process boosts trust within the network and increases your chances of finding the perfect exchange.
Once our team receives your documentation (ID and a proof of residence) and confirms your identity, you will have the option of only being contacted by fellow verified Members. This option can be found in your Dashboard.

We have also improved our Calendar feature to allow you to insert the dates when your home is "Available" for all types of home exchanges or for when you are only looking for Guests ("GuestWanted").

When you wish to do a non-reciprocal exchange (one-way exchange), you will use GuestPoints (GP) instead of Balloons. If you prefer reciprocal exchanges (simultaneous and/or non-simultaneous), you can continue to exchange without needing to use GuestPoints.
Did you still have a Balloon on your old Profile? They have been converted into GuestPoints. Each Balloon in your account was given the value of 1500 GP, which could be used for a 10-day extended exchange or around 5 separate weekend exchanges. It's your decision! GuestPoints make it easier than ever to do short-term exchanges. Continue earning GuestPoints by hosting a guest at your home. Learn more about GuestPoints >
