Home Exchange:
How it Works

Home exchange has become popular among second home owners. Whether you actively rent your home (AirBnB/VRBO) or it’s only for personal use, THIRDHOME is a great way to leverage your second-home investment to enhance your travel lifestyle.

By offering available weeks in your home, in return, you receive travel credits to stay in other members’ homes, rent-free. With over 1,700 destinations to choose from, you’ll never have to visit the same place twice.

Enjoy private family residences, villas, luxury estates, residence clubs, and even yachts. You’ll never pay rental rates but a nominal exchange fee. Expect a 90-95% savings compared to rental costs when you travel with the Club.

Booking Fees

Each stay has an exchange fee that is determined by the time of year it’s available, size, and location. These fees range from $495 to $1395 for the week, not per night. Members can expect an average savings of 90-95% off a standard rental booking rate.

I actively rent my second home on Airbnb and VRBO. Each year my wife and I find a few open weeks and make these available to other Third Home members. It is the best of both worlds as we use our home to earn income and travel the world rent-free!
