Getting Started in 2 easy steps

Step 1 - Sign Up

Sign up using your email and password. 

Step 2 - Add your home swap listing

Begin by describing yourself (and your partner) and list your holiday and travel preferences. As a member, it's only natural that others will want to know a little about who might be staying in their home. This is the start of your communication, so the personal touch is very important. Your next step is to describe your home and your area, upload some great images and finally preview and publish your listing.

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 - Describe yourself 

Be creative and enjoy writing about yourself. 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? Let all our members see who they’re talking to and upload your own picture. For ideas check out Leif and Mark in California. If you are looking to advertise your rental or BnB you can skip this part and just jump to describing your property.

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.
