Free Hotel Stay in Madrid with Melia Points

Although most of my month long trip to Spain was done with home exchange for the lodging, there were two hotel stays. The first, in Bilbao where we used IHG points to stay for free, I’ve already written about. The second was in Madrid, where we got two free nights in Melia hotels.

Final Home Exchange in Spain: Points for Hospitality

In our final house swap on this month-long Spain adventure we’re staying in Granada at the home of a man I met through the website GuestToGuest. This site uses Guest Points as the currency of exchange, allowing members to earn points by hosting people in their home and then spending those points in any place […]

Home Exchange with Points in Cádiz

Traditionally home exchange is done simultaneously, you find someone who wants to travel to your home town the same dates you want to visit their town, and you swap houses. It’s a beautifully simple proposition that carries with it some inherent security since you know exactly where this person lives. Of course the challenge is […]

Free Lodging in Sevilla via Home Exchange Hospitality

We’ve arrived in Sevilla, yet another super cute and friendly Spanish city, with delicious food, gorgeous architecture, and an abundance of beautiful churches. And in this city we have the added benefit of the hospitality of some friends we met through home exchange.

Free Month of Lodging in Spain Through Home Exchange (mostly)

I’m excited to be heading to Spain, and even more excited to be taking this trip without paying for lodging anywhere in the country. Here’s the basic outline of how we’re visiting 6 cities over a month in the country without spending any money on hotels. 

Travel on the Cheap: Sharing Economy Resources for House Swappers

I was asked to write a guest post for the HomeExchange.com blog which I never reposted here. It’s an overview of some of the best sharing economy resources for travelers who are already planning to do a home exchange as a part of their trip. You can read the full article here: Travel on the Cheap

Non-Simultaneous Home Exchange

When I first signed up for a few house swapping websites I assumed that non-simultaneous exchange wasn’t an option for me.  I have only one home, and I live in it. I admit I was a bit envious of people with the flexibility to offer a second home up for swap on any date, presumably giving […]
