What we do:
Mytwinplace is a home exchange marketplace that connects people around the world who share the same interests or hobbies, who would like to swap their homes safely and save up to 70% on their travels. By finding their ‘Twin Place’, our members stay for FREE in amazing properties and benefit from all the comforts of home. Of course home swappers also get to live a unique experience, just like the locals, and meet many new friends.
If you are a smart traveler, sign up and start looking for your “twin place”.
Who are we?
Our passion for traveling around the world, discovering new cultures, living like a local, and making new friends along the way prompted us to try home exchange for ourselves. It took just one vacation for us to get hooked on the idea, and since then we haven’t looked back! Home exchange is definitely our preferred way to travel.
On a different though related note, we believe that existing consumerism models have to seriously change. We are convinced that we can make a better and more sustainable world thanks to peer-to-peer, or collaborative consumption, which you can learn more about here if you’re interested: http://www.collaborativeconsumption.com
We want to be part of the rise of collaborative consumption and we believe this is possible by instilling trust between people as a basis of relationships. Putting home exchange, collaborative consumption and our internet background together Mytwinplace.com was born. Not only do our members get to reduce their travel costs, they are lessening their environmental impact and helping to make the world a better place.
So who are we…
The two co-founders of Mytwinplace work with a team of passionate internet, technology, design, and travel professionals. For more than 15 years we have worked with large websites and a variety of customers in their online strategies, helping them to succeed, but now it’s our turn – today we want to participate in changing the world and fulfilling our own visions.
