A 'vacation home swap' (also called a 'vacation home exchange') is arrangement where you vacation using another family's home as accommodation, and they use your home.
This can be done at exactly the same time, or at different times according to what suits both families. Some families go away elsewhere while their home is being used, while some people are using their second home or vacation home for the exchange anyway.
This sort of vacation arrangement is becoming more and more popular, since it cuts out the major cost of a vacation - the accommodation.
Vacations are a time to relax and unwind oneself from the pressure of work, family etc. Every family would love to take time off for themselves and go on a vacation to places they don't frequent often. But for families that are on a tight budget, going on a vacation might seem to be just impossible, considering the huge hotel bills. Home exchange or swapping is just the right thing for people who are trying to go on a vacation on a limited budget and for those who would prefer to stay in a home rather than a hotel or a motel.
Home exchange is the latest trend in the tourism industry where people can swap their homes with others who are on the look out for a similar home to stay when on a vacation.
