HOME EXCHANGE FAMILY EXPERIENCE

Our family's experience with home exchanges began about 5 years ago and has done wonders for our holiday experiences ! Having three active boys, many hotel rooms didn't provide enough space for them and with a family of five we were faced with having to rent two hotel rooms sometimes. After reading about home exchanges in a family magazine, we joined an online service that we still have our home listed on today!

Exchanging houses and cars can help you save a big chunk of money, often there is more space, your get to meet interesting and helpful local people and it may allow you to go away more often or visit a location that might otherwise be outside of your family budget.

There are challenges too in home exchanging ! It is best if you are flexible about your location and open to offers. It can be difficult to find an exchange home in popular locations. You have to be ready to share your space and it requires a good dose of trust. The biggest challenge we ran into was that many of the offers we received or lisitngs we found either did not take children or the space was not kid-friendly.

The best exchanges we have had have been with other families with similar aged children and similar interests. A bucket of toys and a backyard play area go a long way to making the trip a restful experience for mom and dad. Bicycles, scooters, kayaks etc. also add to the fun. Kids think it is very exciting to be in someone else's home.rWhat funtripswithkids wants to bring you are listings that are exclusively for people for kids. You won't have to worry about a sea of glass coffee tables or having to repeat, "don't touch" a few hundred times a day.
