So after spending time looking and planning for your home swap holiday on Love Home Swap, everything is finally arranged; dates are agreed and flights are booked, luggage is packed and there's only one thing left for you to do. A quick guide to leave for your guests while they're spending time in your home, here's our top tips on things to include in your guide.

1. A list of local attractions and suggestions for easy accessible day trips with directions and maps

2. Useful shops in the area like favourite restaurants and cafes, supermarkets, nearest grocery store and a friendly neighbour contact.

3. Information about public transport; trains, buses, taxis with a rough guide on prices

4. A list of useful things to know around the house, i.e how to turn on the heating, how to lock/unlock the doors and windows and instructions on how to use electrical appliances.

5. Information about how to deal with waste, like collection times and recycling schemes

Both parties should be able to enjoy their swaps without the constant need to ask about simple and easy things. The more times you've swapped the better your guide should be!
