Senior Travel: Consider a Home Exchange

Jul 14th, 2010 | By James E Becker | Category: Senior Travel

The Seniors Vacation and Home Exchange allows you to do a straight vacation exchange of your home. Or, if you prefer, exchange hospitality vacations. You visit with them and, in return, they visit with you.  Have you longed to visit faraway places, but just couldn’t justify the cost? Maybe the Seniors Vacation and Home Exchange is the answer.  Many seniors around the country, or around the world share the same concerns about the high cost of vacations. Seniors Home Exchange can provide you with the very best alternative holiday at a cost that you never thought possible.  I have known of couples who do this and it works out well as the companies give a through examination of each and every home as well as its occupants prior to adding their names to the listing.

This directory carries 3977 exchanges from 56 countries at the moment.  Many exchanges include cars and this provides an enormous savings on rental and insurance expenses.  Nota bene: this caters to seniors!

Home Exchange is the vacation alternative where two families agree to swap homes for a vacation…  “You stay in my house while I stay in yours.”  This site has 37,000 listings with a very nice mapso you can pick your country. I like their mottos which reads…”Make yourself at home…anywhere in the world.”  Be brave and check it out.  It just might be the best idea on travel you have had in a long long time.

Only in America offers an alternative to seeking another home a long ways away.  This free home swapping service caters exclusively to travelers within the Continental United States, its Territories, Canada, Hawaii, Mexico, and the Caribbean. Their user-friendly website offers a large database of homes, apartments, and condos in attractive locations, such as California, British Columbia, Oahu, and Florida.

And lastly, HomeLinkUSA states… “OUR GUARANTEE OF YOUR SUCCESS: If you do not get an exchange in your first year, the second year is free.”  HomeLink home exchange is the largest and most respected home exchange organization in the world.  That’s a pretty good idea I’d say.  Good luck in your travels and Bon Voyage.  jeb
