Discuss your travel plans, the time period(s) you want to swap your house and the most important house rules.


Plan your trip!

If your plans line up and your match is someone you feel comfortable opening your home to, then confirm your swap and book your trip.

Happy traveling!

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.
