Many UK Home Base Holidays members took part in the first series of Home Away from Home and a second series is now in production. As before, you must be a UK resident to take part but other criteria is wider than before, e.g. couples (married, partners, friends) and families with children are invited; both experienced and first-time home swappers are welcome to take part. Also, if you have a second home, you can use this for the swap provided you don't let it out commercially.
The perks: As well as taking part in filming being an interesting experience, all reasonable expenses are covered including food, travel and entry to attractions.
To help you decide if this is of interest, and if you didn't see any of the programmes in the first series, check it out here:
BBC One's Home Away from Home is back! And we're looking for people who want to try out a home swap holiday in the UK.
Do you live in a home you'd be happy to swap with someone elsewhere in the UK for a short break?
Would you like the chance to have a new experience and discover local cuisine, sight-seeing that goes beyond the guide book, and an authentic place to stay?
With Home Away from Home you could be enjoying a unique holiday experience in a stunning part of the UK.
For an application form or an initial chat, please contact Home Base Holidays (TV series in the subject line) and we’ll forward your message to Emma, the Assistant Producer, who will then contact your directly. We look forward to hearing from you.
