It's amazing how fast the savings add up when you choose to home swap as your preferred way to holiday.

Of course, you can never put a price tag on the fabulous, authentic cultural experiences you have when you swap homes. Nor can you put a price tag on the great, long term friendships you make by being an active member in HomeLink's 58+ year old international community.
