Five times the space, fraction of the cost (you won’t need to pack the toys either)

Twickenham > The Canary Islands

We swapped with a five-bedroom villa right opposite the marina and even traded cars. The weather was beautiful and the kids loved it. It was just an amazing holiday and we saved close to £17,000 over our 8-week trip.

Las Vegas > Paris

We hit the jackpot with Love Home Swap. Our swappers offered to pick us up, gave us great 'must do' lists and stayed with us for a lovely dinner! What hotel does that for free? All of this and close up views of the Eiffel Tower from our huge balcony!

Italy > France

Absolutely stunning property and lovely swapper! Cecilia is a sweetheart and very accommodating. We look forward to have a second visit sometime in the future. For anyone who likes golfing this is ideal as the course is basically inside the property. Gorgeous chateaux!

New Zealand > Switzerland

We swapped homes with Andrea for 11 weeks. She is considerate and caring and we valued our swap experience with her and the boys. A fabulous, 5-star home with oodles of room. The area is exclusive and peaceful, yet you could visit and dine in 3 counties in the one day without a rush

Top tips to get your home ready to swap in no time.

Swap simple

We've been doing this for years, so we know the sort of questions you might have. You might not think it, but home swapping is ever so easy.

No need to pack everything away

Just clear one kitchen cupboard and a little wardrobe space. That’s it. If you want to put other valuables away it’s up to you.

The better your pics, the better your swaps

While people like reading about your home, pictures really sell it. All you need is an iPhone or digital camera. If not we can send round a pro.

Keys are key

It's the most frequent question we get - 'How do we hand over the keys?' It's easy. Just leave them with a neighbour or pop a spare set in the post.

Tom and Carole

Australia

"The cottage exceeded all our expectations and suited our needs perfectly. Really comfortable, all the creature comforts and a lovely way to experience village life in Yorkshire. We loved having the peace and privacy of our own home and visit family in the UK every year, we’d like to come back!"

Charles and Glynis

France

"What a lovely area to spend a week’s skiing! Neil was great prior to our arrival giving good assistance with directions and local places to visit. The chalet is tidy and well equipped (the underfloor heating is excellent), great for eating in and has a very pleasant ambience all-round. A lovely week."

The Prince family

Thailand

"We've arranged over 30 swaps and have travelled extensively through many different countries with Love Home Swap. We’ve been travelling since March 2014 and have saved more than £35,000 to-date by swapping. We stayed in one particular home in New Zealand with the most amazing views ever."

The Demeri family

New York, USA

"Swapping has saved us around $18,000 and we’ve been able to visit many unique places outside the typical tourist locations. In Canterbury we met a local historian at the pub and we had a magical stay in Tuscany. Feeling like you are the temporary owners of that house provides something a hotel never could."
