Getting Started in 3 easy steps

Step 1 - Sign Up

Sign up using your email and password. 

Step 2 - Create your Personal Profile *

Use your Personal profile to describe yourself (and your partner) and to list your holiday and travel preferences. As a member, it's only natural that you will want to know a little about who might be staying in your home. This is the start of your communication, so the personal touch is very important. 

Step 3 - Add your Listing

After you SAVE your Profile your final step is to add a Home Swap, Rental or BnB listing. Your Personal Profile automatically attaches to your new listing and will only be seen by our members once you activate your completed property listing. Have you seen our fees

Once a home swap member...

Contact, connect & agree

This is the fun part! Think of places you know and love and places you’d love to know, then browse our listings and contact our members.

Through emails and phone calls you'll soon get to know your Home Around the World partner and you’ll soon forget that you started out as strangers. Once you feel secure knowing that your own home will be in the safe hands of another member, make whatever arrangements suit you best, grab a flight and enjoy your vacation! Just don’t forget to tell us all about it by leaving a review. All reviews earn the writer a free month's membership.

                          

Tips to create a great listing

Tip 1 - Write the perfect Personal Profile

Your Personal profile is all about YOU and not your property. What makes your ideal vacation? Where are your dream destinations? How do you like to spend your time? Culture? Partying? Clubbing? Relaxing? Making new friends? 

Upload one of our background photos that matches your interests or choose one of your own. Let all our members see who they’re talking to and upload your own picture. For Profile ideas check out Leif and Mark in California

Tip 2 - Create a great property listing

Take a little time to write a clear and informative description of your home, rental or BnB, your listing is your advertisement, so it's worth spending a few moments getting it right. What is special about your property and location that will attract interest from other members? If English is not your first language, don't worry as we will review your listing and check your spelling. For listing ideas check out David & Daryl in Melbourne.

Tip 3 - Upload the right pictures

We know you like looking at others' homes, so encourage members to contact you by uploading some great photos of your own to market your home and your location. You can upload an unlimited amount of images and you can edit and change them as many times as you like. 

Your pictures matter, because photos encourage responses and are an important and valuable aspect of your listing and our site.  And if you can't upload them, just send them to us and we'll add them for you. For photo ideas, check out Yvonne and Ariadne in Utrecht.

You just want to stay in a BnB or rent an apartment?

That's OK! As a Guest you don't need to progress to Step 3. Just SAVE your Profile. Remember you can always add your own home swap listing later if you decide to contact other home exchange members. 

*NB. Your Profile is not a property listing and will only be seen by the Rental and BnB advertisers whom you contact.
