You’ll soon see how much you enjoy it!
These are the 5 tips to bear in mind when organizing a home exchange.
1. Register with MyTwinPlace
To start you need to sign up with MyTwinPlace and post the advertisement of your home. Remember to add all details. Describe what your house is like, your neighbourhood, your city and talk about your family. Don’t forget to include quality pictures, so your exchange partner can get an idea of what your home is really like.
2. Choose your destination
If you are already clear on your next vacation destination, you just have to get to work and contact the houses you like most in the area that interests you. In case you still don’t know where to go, or you’re open to any proposed trips, you can see the houses on MyTwinPlace and let yourself be tempted by the requests of other travellers. Surprise yourself and discover new places that you’d never imagined as a holiday destination.
3. Get to know your exchange partner well
Many of the contacts that are made in the world of exchanges end up becoming great friends. Remember that members of the MyTwinPlace community are people who share the same interests and passion for travelling and discovering new places as you, it’s very easy to make friends.
4. Prepare your house for your guests
We’ve already explained how you should prepare your home for future tenants. Leave everything spotless so that your guests are comfortable and feel at ease, just as if they were at home. Don’t forget to leave a book with the most important information.
5. Enjoy your trip

You have closed the exchange agreement, you have left your house ready for another family and are about to begin a journey that will definitely be the first of many.
