Q: We are considering joining Home Base Holidays and looked at listings. Do the numbers in the Party column indicate the number of people wanting to stay in our place assuming we make an arrangement? Cheers, John.
A: That's right. ‘Party’ in search results summary listings refers to the number of people who will be travelling in the exchange party. When you view a member’s full listing you will see the composition of the home exchange party - how many adults and, if children, usually their ages will be shown. You will also see the number of bedrooms in their home and how many people can be accommodated comfortably (members usually give details of the type of beds in each bedroom within their description). This information will help you decide if you look a good match before contacting a member with your home swap offer.
