January / February 2014
Happy New Year (and a special offer)!
January is one of the busiest times for members planning their trips for the forthcoming year, so if you are thinking of returning to HomeLink then now is a great time to get your listing back up and running. We have a special New Year offer of £99 for returning members taking out a one year membership, running until the end of January. Just enter NEWYEAR14 on our renewal form.
Christmas Down Under
Many retired members spend some, or all, of the British winter in Australia and / or New Zealand. There are always families wanting to come North to spend time with families over Christmas or teachers who can only take a long trip during their long summer holiday i.e our winter. Here's a snippet from one such happy member:
Just to say how much we are enjoying ourselves exchanging in Oz again this Winter.
We're at a fantastic house in Sussex Inlet, South of Sydney near all the most beautiful beaches in the world and we're spoiled by the amount of wineries to visit. The weather is around 29 every day and we have to say it's like paradise here. We have got wild parrots eating out of our hand on the balcony (see photo).
We have also become part of the small community here inasmuch they couldn't get anybody young enough to put the Christmas decorations up on the local Church then along came this Welshman - all done!
We move to our next exchange at Copacabana Beach North of Sydney in January and then to Coffs Harbour and home the last day of February.
Now that can't be bad!
Seeking a UK home swap holiday...
If you are thinking of rejoining, here are a few tempting homes to whet your appetite!

Second homes and holiday homes
As we finalise our launch plans for our new website in the first half of this year, we are no longer charging for second listings. You can now list up to three homes for a single membership fee. If you would like to add a second listing to your membership, just let me know.
Having a second home can increase your exchange options as it often removes the need to match dates with your exchange partner. One enthusiastic British member with a second home in Portugal, is just about to set off on an epic tour Down Under with 13 exchanges in New Zealand and another 2 in Australia - what better way to spend the British winter!
However you decide to holiday this year, we wish you a happy and healthy 2014. Do get in touch if there is anything that you would like to discuss.
