LONDON, September 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
A UK couple saved £1,000 in holiday costs after organising a stay for free HomeExchange with a family living just outside Strasbourg, France. They were looking for a cheaper way to holiday abroad with their family, and were also excited by the possibility of visiting places that they may never have thought of, and of experiencing life in a 'local' way.
"The Strasbourg exchange house was fantastic," says HomeExchange.com Member Jane. "Our exchange partner's instructions about the house and surroundings were clear and thoughtful and they'd gone out of their way to make us feel at home. We spent the time sightseeing and enjoying the warmth, as well as congratulating ourselves on organising a really successful exchange, which had saved us about £1,000 in rentals."
Home exchanging means that except for getting there, a holiday nearly anywhere in the world doesn't have to cost any more than staying at home. With no hotel bills, the benefit of free accommodation and the ability to exchange everything from cars to boats and bicycles, http://www.HomeExchange.com has become the best way to experience the world like a local and to stay for free.
"Living in someone's house also means that it's easy to cook and there's always lots of DVDs and toys, so you don't need to worry about taking lots of things with you," continues Jane. "It also means that if you choose to look after each other's pets you know they're being loved."
Home exchange means you get to stay in a comfortable home in a real neighborhood. It offers travelers that exclusive chance to absorb the pleasures of a particular town or city, with the added benefit of returning to the comfort of their exchange partners home.
