Discover house exchange
House swap enables you to spend low cost holidays : your budget only includes travel expenses !
Indeed, apart from the travel price, you save money on all your holidays :
- No rental or hotel expenses
- No more expenses on food than usual
- No transport costs once there (if you exchange vehicles too)
- As comfortable as at home
All in all, for a family of four, you can save up to 60% on your holidays !
The principle is quite simple and has existed for more than 40 years. Today, thanks to cheaper and cheaper transport costs, this kind of easy and safe holidays is booming. Moreover, all dates are now available : each country has different seasons, variable school calendars, and families travel increasingly outside of holiday periods to avoid the big rush.
Advantages/Disadvantages of swapping
The system allows many advantages for few disadvantages. First of all, the global cost of your holidays is cut down by half. You will thus enjoy other pleasures : go further, longer, or enjoy it fully there (go to restaurants, outings, etc...)
And of course do not forget that you will live in a real home : enjoy a real bathroom when coming back from a stroll, cook as you wish, no imposed hours to come back at night or leave in the morning, no forms to fill in, as comfortale as at home...
Friends passing through : invite them 'home' then! No need to go to the restaurant because of the lack of kitchen and space in the hotel room.
The only drawback is the wrong exchange. Indeed, no one can be completely protected from an exchange where the description does not correspond fully to reality, or from the risks of damages to your own place. Usually, this kind of case represents only less than 1% of the swaps. Keep in mind that you would have got in touch with the people long before to ask them more details and pictures. Moreover, damages are extremely rare.
No agency, no intermediary : you get in touch with the people directly and decide if the exchange suits you or not. Trocky allows you to have access to all ads and you can then contact as many people as you wish. You can modify your research and your ads online whenever you want.
