Q: Do you arrange, or know of anyone who arranges car exchanges alone? We are travelling to Switzerland in Dec/Jan and would like a car to get around with. We can offer a lovely BMW in return, in Durban, South Africa, and it need not be during the same period that we are travelling. Any assistance or advise would be well appreciated. Thank you. Rob
A: In theory this sounds like a very good idea! We haven't actually heard of car exchanges on their own or know of a company that organises them - which doesn't mean the service doesn't exist so worth searching for in various ways. Would you perhaps consider a non-simultaneous home swap with someone in Switzerland? South Africa is a very popular destination for home exchanges.
Who knows, if it looks likely that car swaps on their own could catch on, this could be an additional service Home Base Holidays could offer!
