In my opinion, we are probably a huge community of owners in many countries that would like to be able to swap homes.
I for one would like to go to Eastern Europe, spend more time in France, Souther Spain, Scotland, Ireland, etc... I am willing to bet that
the owners there would consider sawaping to spend some time under the sun here in the dominican Republic.
AIRBNB should offer us this service. It should enable us to offer our properties on an exchange basis.
Like the home exchange website each owner can list the countries, regions, cities where they would like to visit and offer and offer an exchange with other owners.
Of course certain rules would need to be applied.
- The swaps valid only owner to owner (eventually family members that would need to be vetted and join the community).
- AIRBNB would charge a "service fee" for services rendered. This fee to be charged to ensure that exchanges are guarantied ....
- One just needs to go the Home Exchange website and see how it works except with AIRBNB.
Let's motivate AIRBNB to offer this servive, the choice of hundreds of thousands of homes out there are just waiting to be swapped.
I'm a member of Home Exchange and joining Love Home Swap. I have a great Airbnb in Nashville and would love to swap within this platform. Always looking for the bay area and am looking for the UK, Switzerland and Italy in 2020.
I love this idea- but more for the chance to actually host in another country. I am retiring from the Coast Guard next spring and looking to travel, but also looking to be helpful. I really was hoping to find someone who might have animals/gardening/renovations to do, or that just needed to get away and leave the Air BnB in capable hands.
Count us in as definitely supporting this idea. We would love to be able to trade/swap vacations using our airbnb listing to trade for vacations for ourselves. .
