***This giveaway is now closed.***
This week, I’m giving away a free year’s membership to HomeExchange.com, a £100 value. HomeExchange.com is a global community of 65,000 like-minded people around the world across 150 countries.You may have heard of or experienced house swapping yourself. It’s incredibly fun and cheap and means you can go anywhere, live like a local, and stay for free. The money you save on accommodation can be spent on meals out, sampling the local cuisine, regional specialities, wine tasting or even the local beer! See end of post for contest logistics.
Members’ homes come in all shapes and sizes, from cozy apartments to sprawling estates and everything in between. Home exchanging means that other than the cost of getting there, a holiday anywhere in the world doesn’t have to cost anymore than staying at home.
HomeExchange.com have nearly 16,000 Members who list their homes as Gourmet friendly or who are foodie fans. Have a browse of their Gourmet friendly listings for inspiration.
Home exchanging is similar to Couchsurfing because it’s free, but it’s also reciprocal. It’s also similar to Airbnb because you host like-minded people at your home, but it does not cost you any money to stay at someone else’s place. Check out these links for more info.
