Home Exchange is the Best

I’ve done 2 exchanges and they were both easy and I had no problems with either. I like that we can either simultaneously exchange, exchange during different times or use/gain points. I really love this concept and am planning my next trip now. Some of the cleaning fees are a little extreme; $250 was requested on one. I understand when a home is used as a vacation rental and they shouldn’t have to pay money for me to stay there so I felt I needed to ask for a cleaning fee also but don’t want that to become the norm. I live in my home so it’s a little different but I hire for deep cleaning. It’s really nothing compared to staying in a hotel or Airbnb. Overall I highly recommend Home Exchange!!

When you're on the road u need a reliable app...

All travellers rely on mobile apps to manage all their multiple crucial details. This app is abysmal compared to dozens of others I use for travel. Absolute bottom of the barrel.
(Guys, It's like you're designing for 1999. The demographic for home exchange are mostly old baby boomers... Intuitive UX will be the key to retaining members. Everyone is complaining. Please hire some real UX people with actual experience!! And synch up with the equally poorly designed but generally working website. The app navigation and Web are often different. Either way it makes for such a frustrating user experience.)
Navigation is terrible. Franglais is also a consistent problem throughout the app. Programming leads to app crashes 40% of the time.
EG. Today trying to message a few favorited places and make new connections (isn't that the whole point of home exchange?) and for hours on end the app crashes as soon as you hit the MESSAGE button. Useless!! So many hours wasted.

The new web site

This web site was difficult for me to use in the beginning, however after watching the webinar I understood how to use it. 25 years ago, I watch a friend from work use a site like this and this site for home exchanges. She talk about how much fun her family had on all their travels year after year. I wanted to. So we we joined two home exchange, Home exchange was our best bet. We have traveled all over the world, have international families and have had wonderful experiences that will always be with us. It is so great to live in a neighborhood and get the feeling of the city. If you don’t mind sharing your house you won’t regret it. Happy wonderful travels. Pat Bledsoe
