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.

USA - California
Carlsbad, 4m, S

We live in beautiful Carlsbad, just 4 miles from the Pacific Ocean and beautiful beaches. You can surf, swim, kayak, stand-up paddle board or rent boats all along the coast. You can enjoy Legoland here in Carlsbad, or visit San Diego with the San Diego Zoo and Balboa park just 30 minutes south. (The international border to Mexico is about 20 minutes south of that). Los Angeles, Hollywood, Venice Beach, Getty Museum, Disneyland and Universal Studios are all within two hours north. Our city has weekly outdoor concerts in the park during the summer, and we will leave schedules and directions to many local events.

Our home was recently remodeled, with three bedrooms upstairs (master bathroom has a jacuzzi tub), and a large game-room down stairs with a pull out bed to sleep two more. We have a swimming pool, outdoor fireplace and barbeque, a custom built tree house with electricity (and video games), and a park directly behind our home. You can set up croquet, badminton, or play darts here at our house.
