Q: I am thinking of looking for a house swap. If I swap with someone in another country is it possible to swap cars? Would I be able to put the other party onto my car insurance? – Tina, Devon, England
A: Most Home Base Holidays members in the UK don't report problems in having an additional driver added to their current insurance temporarily (to drive within the UK). We have, however, had reports of some insurance companies refusing to cover visitors from outside the UK/Europe (and also there can be age restrictions). Do check with your insurance company before agreeing to include your car as part of a home exchange agreement.
