To list for an Exchange on this site is easy but first you need to become a member.
Already a member and you've logged in? Great! Just click HERE to start your listing.
When you list you will be asked to specify whether you are listing for: Home Exchange, Solo Hospitality, Couples Hospitality or Family Hospitality. You simply tick the listing reasons that apply to you (tick at least one but you can tick all that apply). Please note: The listing facility is generic so please ignore any reference you may see for Rental. Call or email us if you get stuck in any part of the listing process and we'll help out.
For all listings (even for Hospitality) you will be asked to enter details of your property and (if possible) upload photos because pictures do make an enormous difference to how a listing is perceived. You will be able to change the initial details you enter at any time, you simply login to this site using your selected email and password and once logged in you will then be transferred to your personal control panel where you can edit all your details. You may have one or more holiday homes so you can list up to five different properties, but for each additional property (after your first which is covered by your initial membership fee) we will charge an additional fee of £15.
Membership entitles you to list your property for any type of exchange and also contact any other member who is also listed. Your membership personal control panel allows you to edit all details relating to your listing including a facility to allow you to add attractive descriptions about your home or area, formatted as you prefer. You can also choose to receive email alerts whenever someone makes an enquiry about your listing.
If you want to indicate when you are open to an exchange on a calendar, then you can do so. Each listing has a unique calendar associated with it.
When you list for an exchange you gain access to a personal listing control panel that lets you specify exactly the sort of exchange you're interested in. So for example, you can set up the type of exchange:
- Home Exchange
- Solo Hospitality
- Couples Hospitality
- Family Hospitality
You can set up your listing so that you receive email alerts when you are sent an enquiry. You can also set out the geographic locations that you are most interested to exchange with. The control panel tools allow you to set up your listing to attract relevant enquiries (exchange dates and preferred exchange locations) and you can also set up automatic responses to enquiries you receive, if you so choose. For more information about Home or Hospitality exchanges, go to: Holiday Home Exchanges
When a U3A Member lists for an Exchange they can tick a box that will set a U3A tag that will show up in all search results. This means that anyone viewing your listing and wishing to contact you is aware that you are a U3A member. This identification means that parties have more in common which we believe 'adds value' to contacts you make.
