HOME EXCHANGE: House swapping holidays for seniors
Holiday house exchange specifically for senior travellers and aimed at people over 50 years of age.
House swapping and exchange can be a great way to travel the world at a reasonable cost and often suits retired seniors who have flexibility with their time. House swaps can take place anywhere, so you might swap your country cottage for a city apartment, a property by the golf course or a luxury beach-side villa. Properties are available all over the world; the most popular destinations on the site include the UK, Australia, Canada, France, Ireland, Italy, Spain, New Zealand and the USA.
A house swap happens by the exchange of a main residence or a holiday home with another home owner for a pre-agreed holiday period, allowing both to enjoying an inexpensive holiday. As well as the house itself, cars, boats, motorhomes, bikes and other sporting gear can often be included in the exchange if agreed; sometimes even pets and pet care can be exchanged!
