You can save thousands of dollars on your next year vacation. You can also save on car rental too which contributes a big chunk to your vacation's expenses--unless you get a free loaner of a car. In these hard economic times you needn't miss out on an enjoyable, comfortable or even luxurious vacation.

How do you do that? The answer to these questions is quite simple: Home Swapping. With more dash than cash it's often hard to fulfill your traveling dreams and needs. Thinking of the top '100 places you should see before you die' can make one's face green with envy. Cheap package tours or camping may be an option for some, but if you have outgrown that many years ago it is not the answer. Neither does it satisfy a nagging traveling bug who reminds you of his existence when travel planning comes around. Especially if you live in "Paradise" anyway.

After a wonderful vacation in Germany which cost a bomb, I had a brainwave. Somewhere and somehow I had heard about swapping homes. Well, on TV families are known to even swap spouses. With a little bit of investigation -Internet research- I found an app for that; or rather several websites. Looking at all the beautiful homes worldwide nurtured my travel bug that bit me years ago. He started to grow and make himself heard: 'If you swap houses with some of these people, you can stay longer' Hey, there is a way to swap cars too. That takes a big load of your pocket book. The bug could no longer be ignored.

With a little bit of investigation on the Internet, it is possible to find the right website and the right exchange partner who fits your needs and expectations. Looking at all the beautiful homes worldwide that are up for grabs is gives you an idea of what is possible and an enormous sense of freedom. Doing a home swap enables you to stay longer; you can even enjoy an extended vacation for a couple of months without adding to the costs of your travel. Home swaps often include cars. That takes a big load of your pocket book. The bug could no longer be ignored. I was all for it immediately.

But: I hear you ask a) Do you want strangers in your house? b) Even sleep in your bed? Guess, how many different people share a hotel bed over time? c) What about valuables and personal stuff? Well, lock everything away! And if a glass or a vase breaks, or a book gets mislaid...so be it. In any case, people have insurance. Undoubtedly, there are risks and pitfalls. Which website to chose? Which exchange partner to go with? What are the insurance implications? I can one protect one's personal items and safeguard oneself against major damages with strangers being in your house? A new book written by first time home swappers answers these questions and gives invaluable advice as well as insider secrets.
