SwitcHome was created in 2002, while commercial exchange sites are developing on the Internet. There was no free alternative for people wishing to trade without paying a single denier.
The passion and the different skills of the creators have made it possible to offer the first completely free exchange platform for home exchange.
Members are more and more numerous and want more services (mapping, forum, free management of ads, assessments between members ...). We had to completely rethink our services offered online.
A work with the IGN (National Geographical Institute), and competent volunteers in development, database, has made it possible to offer services far superior to commercial exchange offers.
SwitcHome then favors the qualitative to the quantitative. Rather than displaying thousands of more or less active customers, SwitcHome requires members to renew their ads every year. We do not hesitate to remove from our database, people who do not respect the spirit of the exchange house.
To become a member SwitcHome, it is not the CB (blue card) that interests us, but be motivated to exchange, make proposals for exchange (and respond to proposals) and be active in the update of its offer exchange.
From then on, SwitcHome becomes a major player in the home exchange.
Our objectives remained intact:
New services for members (simplified management of ads with photos and video, internal messaging, automatic translation, quality of offers in their presentation and description etc.).
A responsive site to adapt to all media (PC, tablet and smartphone).
SwitcHome still has one step ahead of commercial sites and is proud to post quality offers rather than an obsolete offer quantity. We are leader in home exchange with always up-to-date and quality proposals.
