Most Home Base Holidays members swap homes at the same time; however, non-simultaneous swaps are popular too, especially with second home owners who don’t need to vacate their home to accommodate exchange guests. Members who are able to offer their homes/second homes at different times have the advantage of being more flexible on dates to suit their guests.
The following are examples of current non-simultaneous home exchange offers:
