Exchange Holiday Homes

How Exchange Holiday Homes works  



  • It's very simple to register your holiday home online, it's free and there's no obligation on your part. All members are second home owners only and there's no need to exchange directly with anyone.
  • As a member, you can add dates to potentially offer to other members. These dates, if selected, are always confirmed with you before being finalised, just in case you may have taken a booking and they are no longer available. You can remove dates should you get a booking or want the week/s back for any reason.
  • Once you have fully registered , you can take up to 2 exchanges immediately, as long as you keep dates on your own listing, to cover the credits used until they have been earned back. Again, you can change those dates if you want them back for a rental for example.
  • You can also go to our Late Offers section, and take advantage of the huge discounts available, you can even purchase the full credits of the discounted weeks shown there, without having to use any of your own credits. These are dates that fall into the next 6 weeks.
  • The credits you earn by allowing someone to visit your holiday home are valid for up to 3 years.
  • You can select any dates showing on our lists, or if no dates are showing against any you are interested in, request them by sending us the ID Ref No's. We will ask that member if he will consider adding suitable dates for you, and let you know. We agree many exchanges this way, most of our members are happy to consider requests.

More Information

You can earn extra credits!  Introduce a new member to us, and the first confirmed exchange booking they receive, you will receive an extra 21 credits.

  • It is free to register and you are under no obligation when you join. You do not need to add dates until you have found somewhere to go, but we do encourage you to do so to increase your dates being selected, after all you can remove them all should you need to for any reason.
  • If you have used any of your credits, you must keep enough dates (up to 1 year in advance) available to cover the value of those used credits, until you have earned them back. However, you can change any added date/s at any time, and replace them with another date/s to cover the credits. We always contact you for confirmation that a date you may have showing is still available before any exchange is tied up.
  • If you don't have enough credits to cover the holiday you are interested in and don't wish to add further dates, you can also top up the credits you do have at £52 per 7 credits, max 21 credits.
  • We have an exciting ‘Late Offers’ section, containing all dates within the next 6 weeks at heavily discounted rates. Members still receive the full original credit value for the week but it costs significantly less credits to select the week. Short breaks are not included in this section.
  • Please Note: These discounts do not apply to weeks that have been added specifically for a particular member by request, even if that week falls within the next 6 weeks.

If you don't wish to use up any of your own weeks, there is an option to purchase the full credit value of any late offer week's showing in this section. No exchange fee is payable when purchasing full credits . Full details on our Late Offers page.

Under certain circumstances (regular members only), full weeks credits can be purchased further in advance that are not in the late offers. Please contact us for more details.
