The idea of the Friendly Travelers community is very simple - you find a person living in the place you want to visit, get to know more about each other and then swap your homes for a period of time.


What are the benefits of this kind of travelling?

  • You are free to choose time, destination and duration of your stay.
  • You are not limited by travel agencies offers and "must see" tourist attractions.
  • You make new friends and have an opportunity to feel a new culture from the inside.
  • You save money on hotels and catering.
  • It's the ideal way to travel for families with children. You decide where to go, what to do and what to eat.
  • Your exchange partner will take care of your pets if you can't take them with you.
  • It's free!

Is it secure?

That is the main question that first-time travellers ask. The answer is positive.

In order to achieve the highest level of security you should sign an Exchange Agreement with your exchange partner. Please also make sure that your exchange is covered by house insurance. In general insurance companies are happy to have somebody in your house when you are away.


Small tip
You can ask one of your friends to visit your guests in your house in order to help them with any questions they might have on arrival. Your friend can also check if everything is OK in your home.
