Remember, when the accommodation costs nothing you're left with MUCH more to spend on just enjoying yourself while on vacation.
Anybody can home exchange, families with children, couples, single folk, retired people: nothing broadens your horizons like time spent living as a local.
After more than 40 successful home exchanges over 25+ years with my family, I consider myself a true veteran. I wrote Home Exchange Academy so that I could help enlighten many more people to the concept. Home Exchanging is the key to exciting, affordable travel.
The opening title describes the e-book as a "Blueprint to Swap Homes For Your Next Vacation and Get Out Of The Hotel Rut", and that’s a perfect summation. Home Exchange Academy could not be more detailed. It explains exactly how to compare all the clubs presently available, what to look for on their web sites, plus the red flags to guard against.
Once a club is chosen the e-book explains in minute detail exactly how to set up a listing, what text and information must be included. It also has some excellent suggestions for integrating more photographs and information than the website listings can accommodate.
Also extensively covered are: correspondence between members, developing likely inquiries, preparing your home for an exchange, writing Home Exchange and Car Exchange Agreements, and creating a Home Exchange Book which provides visiting guests with detailed information about your home and its idiosyncrasies, emergency contacts and phone numbers, recommended local restaurants and attractions, plus much, much more.
Samples of these documents are incorporated in the e-book, plus purchasers can download actual working copies in Microsoft Word and PDF formats from the e-book's website.
