UK Couple Holiday Like There's No Recession and Save GBP1,000 With Stay-for-FREE HomeExchange

Monday, January 24, 2011

LONDON, January 25, 2011 - A UK couple saved GBP1,000 in holiday costs after organising a
stay-for-FREE HomeExchange with a family living just outside Strasbourg,
Germany. They were looking for a cheaper way to holiday abroad with their
family, and were also excited by the possibility of visiting places that they
may never have thought of, and of experiencing life in a 'local' way.

"The Strasbourg exchange house was fantastic," says
HomeExchange Member Jane. "Our exchange partner's instructions about the
house and surroundings were clear and thoughtful and they'd gone out of their
way to make us feel at home. We spent the time sightseeing and enjoying the
warmth, as well as congratulating ourselves on organising a really successful
exchange, which had saved us about GBP1,000 in rentals."

Home exchanging means that except for getting there, a holiday nearly
anywhere in the world doesn't have to cost any more than staying at home.
With no hotel bills, the benefit of free accommodation and the ability to
exchange everything from cars to boats and bicycles, home exchange has become
the best way to experience the world like a local and to stay-for-FREE.

"Living in someone's house also means that it's easy to cook
and there's always lots of DVDs and toys, so you don't need to worry about
taking lots of things with you," continues Jane. "It also means that if you
choose to look after each other's pets you know they're being loved."

Home exchange means you get to stay in a comfortable home in a real
neighborhood. It offers travelers that exclusive chance to absorb the
pleasures of a particular town or city, with the added benefit of returning
to the comfort of their exchange partners home. "Expensive hotels are out;
private houses and apartments are in; they're more appealing, more
comfortable, and less costly," says Ed Kushins, President,

Unlimited exchanges can be taken with no additional per day or per
exchange charges of any kind for only GBP5.95 a month. HomeExchange even
guarantees that if for any reason you don't make an exchange in the first
year, the second year is FREE. is the global
