Swapping for the weekend with WeekendAwaySwap is an arrangement between people with  like minded views and based on an understanding and trust that both parties will treat each other’s homes with the utmost care and respect. Problems that occur during house swaps are extremely rare notwithstanding the odd broken cup but please do speak with your home insurer regarding any extra cover you feel you may require. 

WeekendAwaySwap will require verification of identity including ID and a current utility bill tied to the property from all members on the site and will ensure that these are correct.



The swap can work in two ways; a) you can select from listings posted for your preferred date, or b) propose a date to House Swap members that have indicated that they are flexible,  via direct message. 

People who home swap understand the practicalities involved and always treat any home they spend time in as if it were their own. If something were to occur such as a cup/glass breakage, then members can come to an equitable agreement to cover the cost of same. Members can of course consult their home insurer to be advised on any additional cover they feel they may require. Members who do not abide by our Terms and Conditions and Weekend Away Swap policies will have their membership suspended without refund. 

Members mostly use one of the following options

  1. Leave the key in a secure spot known only to the arrival.
  2. Give the key to a neighbour or friend who will pass it on to the arrival.
  3. The purchase of an outdoor lock box would be invaluable 

If you intend to use your membership to its full potential which could mean taking quite a few        breaks over the course of the year. You simply place the keys in the box and pass on the code to the arrival.
