I travel a lot and I find that the most affordable way to travel is to swap with other hosts (if I can convince them why they would want to come to my beautiful city). It’s a great way to network with other hosts and as well to travel on a budget. I usually end up making an agreement to swap night for night regardless on the price difference as prices vary from city to city; as long as it’s a direct trade (1 bedroom/ 1 bathroom for same). If it’s not an even trade, then I’ll pay an agreed on difference… Although I find most hosts don’t care about that too much.
Anyways, I have had a heck of a time trying to find a forum or venue to look for other hosts of like mind who want to do direct trades with other hosts. I started a Facebook group with this goal in mind.
Feel free to join, share your experiences, thoughts and your rental!!! But please, this is only for hosts who have active listings and are wanting to trade.
