Are you bored of the same old holiday experience? Fed up of generic, expensive hotels, overcrowded tourist spots, and never seeing the real essence of a country? Then you're in the right place.

Home swapping is a unique way of seeing the world, without having to break the bank to do so. Take away the cost of a hotel, and add in staying somewhere that isn't on the beaten track, and have yourself the holiday of a lifetime.

As long as you have somewhere nice you can provide for someone to live in - a cosy family home, stylish city apartment or a holiday home that sits empty part of the year, you can swap with thousands of people all around the world.

Home exchange can sound too good to be true, especially when you take a look at some of the amazing homes and locations on offer! We've decided to compile everything we think you need to know about home swapping into this definitive how-to guide.

If there's anything you want to know, and would like to share, drop us a message and we'll be happy to include it.
