Home exchange for tennis travelers
How’d you like to live like a local and stay for FREE when attending a tennis tournament? HomeExchange is a home swapping club, I’ve just learned about. Basically, you swap a stay in your home with a stay in someone else’s. The exchange is a great way to find a place to stay around any of the majors: Wimbledon, U.S. Open, Australian Open and French Open.
There are multiple homes in the Queens region of New York, for example, and over 700 listings in Manhattan.
Exchanges can be simultaneous (where you swap during the same time period) or non-simultaneous (you stay in their home while they are away, with a commitment to open up your home to them at a later date), allowing travelers to map out their next vacation.
The site has 66K+ active property listings around the world that take accommodation expense out of the travel equation by offering members ($150 annually) unlimited home exchanges.
I personally have four cities in mind of course: London, Paris, New York and Melbourne.
