LONDON, July 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
A HomeExchange member is hoping to swap her UK home with a home on Martha's Vineyard-a tiny islandoff the south of Cape Cod in New England, USA in a year's time when the Olympics comes to London in July 2012. With over 40,000+ home exchange listings in 144 countries and hundreds of those requesting to exchange within the UK and Ireland, Martha's Vineyard is just one of hundreds of potential escape the Olympics destinations for home owners to choose from.
"It's a great time to home exchange as there will be so many people from around the world who will be looking to come to England for the Olympics," says HomeExchange Member Gretta. "My home is in Oxfordshire, fifty miles from London where there is a direct train from my local station to Paddington, in the centre of London, which only takes 45 minutes."
Home exchange provides an ideal way to escape the Olympics and to watch the Games on TV from the comfort of your exchange home anywhere in the world. What better time to get away and avoid the disruptions the Games will bring to the UK with more traffic, noise, crowds and just the logistics of getting around.
"We got the idea of escaping the Olympics with home exchange when some of our Members started telling us that this is what they were doing," says Ed Kushins, HomeExchangeNow.co.uk President. "With people realising they can see the Games without accommodation expenses, the opportunities are endless. People can start benefiting straightaway by swapping their home prior to as well as during and after the Games."
With no hotel bills and the benefit of free accommodation, home exchange has quickly become the best way to experience the world like a local and to stay for free. It means that except for getting there, a holiday nearly anywhere in the world doesn't have to cost any more than staying at home.
Unlimited exchanges can be taken with no additional charges of any kind for £5.95 a month. HomeExchange even guarantees that if you don't make an exchange in the first year, the second year is FREE. http://www.HomeExchange.com is the global leader in home exchange with a UK version of the website at http://www.HomeExchangeNow.co.uk
