Home Exchange is a Great Way to Save Money

Our Florida Home Exchange Property

In the current economic climate home exchange is a great way of saving money, as a family we have visited Orlando Florida on many occasions, we have always had self catering holidays but the accommodation costs can be very expensive the average price for a small villa with a pool is about £600 per week.
We did arrange an exchange to Florida which saved us nearly £1,200 in accommodation costs we did not exchange cars but many people do, the hire car costs are around £350 per week depending on vehicle size but potentially we could have saved £1,900 off the price of the holiday the total cost with
accommodation costs and car hire would be around £4,000 including spending money.
So the overall cost could have been reduced to £2,100 for a family of 4 that’s just £525 per person for a 2 week holiday including Disney World and Universal Studio passes for 7 days that is a bargain.
So do give this type of holiday a try you will save a lot of money and have a great time in the process.


How to create a good home exchange listing

28 08 2010

Do spend time on your home exchange listing, add details of the property and it’s location do include details of any local places of interest and local services.

Do add content about your self and family and do add as many photos of your property as you can, if you can set a main image for your listing do so, this will greatly increase your chances of arranging an exchange.

Do review your listing and check for any spelling mistakes and poor grammar when you are happy then post your listing, just so you are aware you are 50% more likely to get an exchange request if your listing has a main image set and you have uploaded photos to your listing.
