Home Exchange – the Holiday Alternative
Home Exchange 50plus
is a website which enables you to holiday by swapping homes with like-minded
travellers, either in your own country or worldwide, and is specifically for
those 50 and over. Select from 750plus homes in 50plus countries from Australia
to the USA, stay free and travel more.
Home Exchange – what is it? It is when you agree to swap
homes, and often cars, with someone; you stay in their home and they stay in
yours, and no money changes hands.
Home Exchanging can take several forms:
- A traditional exchange is when you swap homes at the same time.
- A non-simultaneous exchange is when one
or both of you have alternative accommodation available, and therefore the dates
for the exchange do not have to link and the exchange happens at different times
for each party.
- Hospitality Exchange is the third type and this is when you take
turns staying as guests in each other’s homes and works particularly well for
Home Exchange – who does it? It would be incorrect to
think of those who home exchange simply as budget travellers, for that is far
from the truth: they represent a wide cross-section of the travelling public. A
recent survey showed that 70% of home exchangers are over the age of 45, 60%
regard themselves as highly educated, 25% are self employed and 24% are retired.
HomeExchange50plus have many members in their 70s and some even in their 80s,
many of whom are single, who see this as a great way to travel and make new
friends along the way.
Home Exchange – why do it? It is a great way to travel,
to experience other cultures and to see other countries differently, through
local eyes and not just as a tourist. Saving money is the obvious benefit – with
no accommodation costs, the savings can be substantial, well into the thousands
per year. Imagine how much more you will have to spend by not paying hotel bills
or villa rental! Other major savings can be achieved by swapping cars, sports
equipment and even boats, by not having to dine out every night, even by playing
as a guest at your host’s sports/golf club. The same survey listed 33% of home
exchangers’ motivation was to save money, 23% wanted to travel more often and
swapping homes allowed them to do so, and just over 18% are looking for the
authentic cultural experience that comes with staying in a home.
Brian & Catriona Luckhurst created
Home Exchange 50plus.com as
lovers of the idea of Home Exchanging and see it as a project to keep them busy
in retirement. The website has a special section for Golf Breaks, the idea being
that you can swap clubs as well as homes and maybe even temporary membership.
also includes a holiday home rental section which is open to all but aimed at
the 50plus market who are more time flexible and tend to rent at quieter times.
Are you 50plus and love to travel, are you ready for some
exciting new experiences, travelling to fabulous places and enjoying the second
half of your life to the full? Isn’t it your time for a great adventure? What
better way to travel and save money than joining Home Exchange 50plus!
