Frequently Asked Questions

Home swapping is a unique form of travel accommodation where individuals or families exchange their homes with one another for a specified period. It offers a cost-effective and immersive way to experience new destinations while eliminating the need for traditional accommodation expenses. During a home swap, homeowners (or "hosts") stay in the swapper's property while the other party stays in their home. This arrangement allows both parties to enjoy the comforts and amenities of a real home, including access to a fully equipped kitchen, living spaces, and local neighborhoods. Home swapping provides an opportunity to explore different cultures, live like a local, and create lasting connections with fellow travelers.
Swaphouse is an online platform tailored for remote workers and digital nomads seeking work-from-home opportunities in new locations. By facilitating home swaps, Swaphouse allows users to exchange their homes with others, providing an affordable alternative to traditional accommodations like Airbnb and Booking.com. The platform focuses on homes equipped with essential amenities for remote work, such as fast Wi-Fi and dedicated workspaces. This approach enables users to embark on "workations", exploring different destinations while enjoying the comforts and functionality of a remote work environment without the financial burden of expensive accommodations.
Swaphouse connects homeowners to “swap” their homes in a 1-for-1 exchange, without paying one another. You can start your home swapping adventure in 4 easy steps: #1 Join Swaphouse Create an account and list your own home. Simply add details such as your home location, amenities, home office offerings (Wi-Fi speed, monitor, desk and chair type) and of course some photos. #2 Start exploring Once your home listing is created, you can access the "Explore" section to discover all available homes. If you see a home you’d like to stay in, hit the "heart" button. #3 Collect matches If the owners of the homes you liked also liked your home, then you have a "match"! You can then start chatting with each other to see if there's a fit and discuss travel plans. #4 Connect & plan Consider scheduling a video call with your match to build trust. If your plans line up and you feel comfortable opening your home to your match, then book that trip! ✈️
Swaphouse welcomes anyone who owns a home eligible for swapping to join our platform. Whether you're a remote worker or from any employment background, you can enjoy the benefits of home swapping. However, it's important to ensure that you have the necessary permissions and agreements in place. If you own a home, please check with your home association, mortgage provider, insurance provider(s) and relevant local authorities to ensure that home swapping is permitted and doesn't violate any agreements. It's crucial to comply with any rules or restrictions set by these entities. Besides that, for renters it's essential to consult your landlord and review your rental agreement. Seek their permission and verify if home swapping is allowed according to the terms of your lease. We recommend to receive your landlord's consent to avoid any conflicts or breaches of your rental agreement. Please be aware that Swaphouse cannot assume liability in these matters. It remains your responsibility to confirm and adhere to any (local) rules, restrictions, or agreements imposed by relevant parties. Take the necessary steps to ensure that you are compliant and can enjoy a secure and smooth home swapping experience.
At Swaphouse, we prioritize the safety and security of our users. While we strive to create a trustworthy community, it's important to know that Swaphouse does not verify user accounts, profiles, or listings. Therefore, ensuring your safety ultimately lies in your own hands. To feel more secure during the swapping process, we encourage you to establish a strong connection with potential swappers. Take the time to communicate with with each other, discuss expectations, and have video calls to get to know each other better. It can also be beneficial to request for example government identification and proof of home ownership for added confidence. It's crucial to exercise caution and trust your instincts. If you have any doubts or concerns about a potential swap, it's best to err on the side of caution and explore other matches. Your safety is of paramount importance to us, and we want you to have a positive and secure experience on Swaphouse.
