I've been thinking about doing a house swap/exchange. We'd love to go to Canada next Summer, but as accomodation prices are pretty steep I wondered about doing an exchange with a family from Canada.
Does anyone have any experience of this kind of house swap? Good or bad. Any good agencies to go through. Or who/what to avoid?

But then you're both in the other's home - I think you have to have a degree of trust, don't you? And I don't swing either..:w00t:

thing is you dont know if they damage your house till your back in uk so could be too late?

nice idea, i personally would worry about what they might do in my house and what i might accidentally damage/break in theirs!!!! and hopping on the good foot in someone else's house might feel a bit weird too ;-)

I think another point to consider is that if you have home insurance you have to inform your provider that you're doing the swap. I have no idea how that affects your insurance though!
