Why does HomeLink membership cost more?

Often people ask, Why is HomeLink more expensive? I can join 'XYZ' exchange network for only US$49.95 ... or GBP29 ... or FREE.

The answer is, HomeLink is the best. Simple as that.

Once you've read all our Common Questions, you will clearly see the overwhelming advantages of HomeLink compared to faceless, internet-only exchanges. HomeLink's community pioneered the concept of home exchange for more than 57 years, and has over 13,000 loyal members who will build relationships with you according to our long tradition of mutual respect and trust.

Even if you only consider one fact - that only HomeLink has highly experienced local organisers, right there to help you, in almost any country you care to visit, we think you'll agree that this alone more than justifies our price difference. A difference which, when you stop and think about it, is actually a very modest sum compared to the cost of a vacation and this is before you consider all the other advantages of HomeLink! After all, what price can you put on peace of mind? So why would you trust your home ... and vacation ... with any other exchange network?

Our thousands of loyal members around the world (many of whom have renewed every year for 3 decades!) would testify to that wonderful old saying - You only get what you pay for.

Why would you wish to penny-pinch on membership fees with a cheaper, faceless internet-only exchange network?

It's all about your precious home, and finding your once-in-a-lifetime holiday. HomeLink offers the most comprehensive local service all around the world, and the best opportunities to find exactly that.

100+ year old house/cottage in the Catskill Mountains of New York State is close to the Village of Woodstock, historic gathering place for artists, writers, and musicians, as well as the entire Hudson Valley region and New York City.

The house overlooks the Ashokan Reservoir and surrounding mountains, a spectacular view at any time of year. All three bedrooms are equipped with organic rubber mattresses (1 queen, 1 double, 1 twin), organic cotton sheets, organic wool pillows, and organic down comforters. The screened porch has a twin daybed for anyone wishing to sleep "en plein air."

Many kinds of wildlife can be observed at various times of year including eagles who venture up from their nests around the reservoir. Feeding wildlife of any kind is strictly prohibited as are outdoor cooking and camp fires.
