Imagine holidaying in a luxurious Tuscan villa, Parisian loft or Hawaiian beach retreat – all for less than a night in a hotel. Well, imagine no more and vacation wherever and whenever you like through Luxe Home Swap, the world’s leading site for stylish home exchange vacations.
Through this elite accommodations exchange service that’s leading the social travel charge, jet setters enjoy high end home exchange vacations in dream destinations worldwide. This type of barter benefits travelers with more comfortable and authentic residential settings that many globe trotters prefer – particularly for longer term jaunts.
Each year, millions of people vacation by exchanging homes through friends and family. But, until now, only those “in the know” could find their dream swap holidays via the Web. Now modernizing this age-old tradition, Luxe Home Swap is empowering vacationers all around the world by connecting them with the most spectacular home exchanges ever assembled. What’s more, members may swap as many times as they like, wherever they like!
Annual membership for the service is $159 and members can stay for free in amazing locations all around the globe, in exchange for the chance for other members to vacation in their home. Making this service even more accessible for those who want to “test the water” before diving into the proverbial deep end, Luxe Home Swap recently partnered with Elysiants, a leading social network for those who celebrate life in style, whose members can now join Home Swap for 4 weeks for only $1. Those with multiple properties may add as many homes as desired to the site easily and at no extra cost as part of the same membership.
And, arranging a swap requires only 4 simple steps: 1) Browse the LuxeHomeSwap.com site to find homes you’d like to exchange with all around the world; 2) Join LuxeHomeSwap.com with quick and secure sign up either directly, or through Elysiants.com to take advantage of special offers; 3) Contact other like-minded members to discuss swaps via secure messaging and agree the specifics with a digital contract; and 4) Pack your bags! Confirm your exchange and you’re ready to enjoy your fabulous vacation in a home away from home.
“Our members save an average of $3,000 per swap,” boasts Luxe Home Swap founder Debbie Wosskow. “Also, it’s very common for swaps to include cars, ski equipment and other benefits and amenities, so the savings can be much higher.”
Of course, before you welcome vacation exchange guests into your own home, ensure it is tidy -and leave their home in a similar manner. Be courteous and also stock up on basics such as nice kitchen staples. Also be sure to put in a call to your home insurance company to ensure you’re covered – most insurers cover an exchange with the other party regarded as a guest.
Luxe Home Swap offers savvy travelers a chance to be an “insider” in global geographies of choice. Here’s your chance to live like a local wherever in the world you want to go.
