[Closed] Win Dinner and a Movie for two people at The G Hotel, Galway!

Is a Summer Home Swap the best way to holiday this year?

With the summer months fast approaching, many people are making final decisions on where to holiday this year. With the limited availability, and high prices, associated with holiday homes, many people are now looking at new alternatives for this year’s vacation. For those wishing to stay in Ireland, or travel abroad, a home swap is becoming an increasingly popular choice. Kevin Murphy, of home4home.ie, says Irish holiday makers are now prioritising value for money over any other criteria when deciding on this year’s vacation.

’The costs of booking a holiday home in July or August this year are prohibitive for many families, with holiday rentals asking for in excess of €2,000 per week at popular locations', according to Kevin.

'There is a cost-effective solution to your holiday woes, and the secret is right under your own roof', Kevin states as 'home4home.ie is a home exchange website with a selection of properties across Ireland, and is currently in the process of expanding to an international market, with several properties already listed in Spain, France, and even Australia’.

Value for money is not the only advantage

For pet-owners, home swaps can ease the worry of finding someone to watch your furry friend, or the extra expense of checking them into a Pet Hotel, as you can arrange with your exchange partner to look after your pet. Home4Home also allows you to filter for pet-friendly accommodation for those looking to bring their pets with them.

Another perk about home-swapping is it allows you to build a connection with your home-swap partner where you can gain all sorts of insider tips on the locality you’ll be travelling to, from exciting attractions off the beaten track, to contact details for babysitters in the area, which is where some of the extra cash you’ve saved will come in handy!

Home exchange is a fantastic option for those lucky enough to be in a remote-working situation as you can swap homes for anything from a few weeks, to several months, and it is also extremely beneficial for the Irish diaspora who wish to return home for longer than traditional holiday periods.

Love is in the air

Home swapping suits people at all stages of life, and the larger the family, the more money that can be saved in doing an exchange. Though home swapping is usually associated with families, retired people and those with longer than normal holiday time, it was also the theme of the romantic comedy, The Holiday, the 2006 film starring Kate Winslet, Cameron Diaz, Jude Black and Jack Law. Two lovelorn women, Winslet and Diaz, arrange a home swap between the UK and the US, to escape heartbreak during the Christmas season. Their experience turns out to be more than they bargained for, in a very positive way.

'No matter what your situation, from those with young children to retirees, home4home.ie caters for everyone’s needs, and allows you all the comfort of home while you’re away, check out the website to register’ Kevin advises as free membership closes this week, and, from May, an annual fee will be charged for membership of the site.
