Aussie House Swap is Australia's most loved house swapping website. Whether it's a house swap domestically around Australia or any where in the world Aussie House Swap can meet all your needs.
What are the benefits I hear you ask? Some benefits are obvious, others will surprise you. Yes, it will save you money - lots of money. This is good. But there is much more to love about House Swapping.
House Swapping makes it possible to do what you never dreamed you could. Travel anywhere in Australia or the world, and stay in a fully functioning home in a regular neighbourhood for free. Stay at the beach, in the bush, in the city or on a farm. Take the kids, the partner or travel solo for the dream weekend or the holiday of a lifetime.
Save money -
Travelling is expensive. The minute you walk out your own front door, the meter starts ticking. House swapping (or home exchange) can change that radically with average savings of $1500 to $4000 per week. That's pretty much anywhere, for mid-range accommodation averaged across couples and families, peak and off-peak. Every week.
The savings are not just accommodation costs, there are also huge savings from preparing your own food, your own laundry, your own entertainment and, if you've negotiated a car swap, not paying for car hire.
Live with the locals, with the comfort & convenience of a functioning home. Don't just travel there - LIVE there. Get to know a place by living like a local; finding the local cafes, restaurants, parks, shops and all the secret gems known only to the natives. And you already know some of the natives - your house swapping partner is a font of local knowledge.
Living in a lived-in home brings an enormous array of benefits, which can include your own kitchen, laundry and entertainment system - and which can even extend to an open fireplace, a swimming pool, spa or cable internet. Everything is generally right at your finger-tips - people live here! Some other exciting benefits are:
CAR SWAP: Often an option.
YOUR HOUSE IS SECURE: Nothing beats occupancy to secure a property.
YOUR PETS & GARDEN COULD BE CARED FOR: Optional but it's often happily agreed to.
MAKE GREAT FRIENDS: It happens a lot.
House swapping is AWESOME for families too. Swap with another family and get the added benefits of high-chairs or play equipment, a library of kid's books or movies, or even toys!
For a weekend or a month (or 3). Get away for a couple of days, or set off on the holiday of a lifetime. House swapping is as flexible as the people you find, and there is a huge range of people right here, so your chances of finding a great swap match are high.
Do more than you EVER imagined. House Swapping makes it possible to go places you never imagined you could, to do things you've only dreamed of.
So now is a great time to turn those dreams into a HOLIDAY. We are sure that it will the first of many.
