HomeExchange has unveiled the Passport™ Program, allowing world travel for free through a brilliantly simple system where no money changes hands. Members now earn the opportunity to stay in the destinations of their choice just by hosting different members.
Members coordinate two-way exchanges, either simultaneously or with a commitment to host at a later date. The Passport Program allows members to use one “Balloon” to stay in any other members’ homes without necessarily hosting them in return.
A "Balloon" is earned by hosting another member, also in a one-way exchange, thus expanding the world of exchange opportunities. Balloons are earned regardless of length of stay, type of accommodation or location. Each time HomeExchange members host at their homes, they earn a Balloon that can be redeemed on a stay with any other members open to hosting the Balloon holder.
With the HomeExchange Passport Program, communication between members is essential, so exchange inquiries are made through a completely redesigned secure messaging and guestbook system.
Now everyone who joins HomeExchange gets Passport access, and a first Balloon is earned after committing to host another member or renewing membership for a second year. At any time, members can of course, still do direct exchange, simultaneous or not.
