HomeLink Home Exchange News May / June 2012

Dear Visitor

Welcome to our latest newsletter. As the summer approaches, more and more of our members are now fixed up with exciting holiday home swaps all over the world. Some members have been posting their plans on our Facebook page (see www.facebook.com/HomeLinkUK) ...

"We are going to Rome in August and also swapping our cats for Italian ones for two weeks. I hope they understand English! "

‎"20kms outside Milan for us. The boys are looking forward to a trip to Monza and the Ferrari Museum, Mel can't wait for the shopping and Lake Como, and I just can't wait for a holiday!"

"Guangzhou, China for us and our three kids. We are feeling SO lucky to have found an exchange there!"

"Bergen, Norway for us! Looking forward to some kayaking on the fjords! Driving all the way there - stopping at Legoland, Denmark as a big treat for the kids."

"The university town of Landau in the German wine region for us this summer for two weeks of hot sun we believe. Oh yes, and a fair amount of wine!"

"Being lucky retirees we have five more swaps for this year, having already been to Scotland at Easter. We start off in Worcestershire, then Bavaria, then Hertfordshire, then Dorset, then Rotterdam! What a life!"

And here's where we're off to with our family...


Germany home exchange holiday

A lovely family home in a National Park in Germany. It's in a very peaceful location but with plenty of things for the children to do - not least the huge trampoline and play equipment in the garden and a large open-air pool in the village.

My children are particularly looking forward to caring for their 4 rabbits!


Insurance for home exchangers

At this time of year, the number of calls that I receive from HomeLink members increases dramatically. The first and most important point is that exchangers need to make absolutely sure that they have the cover they require and that any existing policies are valid whilst exchangers are visiting. We have a lot of experience with a wide variety of insurance questions from home exchangers (for car, home and travel) and we are always happy to share our knowledge and point you in the direction of a company who can help. We also have a Members' Discussion Forum where members share their experience of insurers - good and bad - and this is a valuable source of information on this issue where policy changes are frequent.

We know that many people contemplating a home exchange for the first time have many questions while others just like to chat through in more detail. Either way, we'd love to hear from you, so do get in touch if you'd like me to give you a call.

Best wishes
