Q: I’m looking to arrange a suitable home swap in England over the Christmas holidays, and wondered what the best way of finding people looking to also swap then? – Joy, Australia
A: You can search by swap dates to find members in the UK looking for a home exchange between December and January. The Guardian Home Exchange website has lots of home swap offers in the England with many people looking to arrange swaps over the Christmas holidays. Visit the Guardian Home Exchange search page and then use the search options in the left hand search bar to narrow down your search. Use the ‘Exchange dates’ search field to find members looking to arrange a home exchange over the festive period.
Whatever site you use to find your swap, it’s always best to keep your searches as broad as possible so that you do not accidentally miss any potentially suitable home swap offers (e.g. some people that may love to swap with you over the Christmas period but simply entered ‘Open to offers’ for their exchange dates).
