Stay Free When You Travel: New Book Guides Travelers Through Home Swaps

Boca Raton, FL – Would you like to stay free when you travel using a time tested concept proven effective by half a million people every year? A new book, the first how-to home exchange guide with an online focus authored by U.S. home exchangers M.T. Simon and T.T. Baker, helps travelers find free home accommodations in the United States and abroad by guiding them through the home exchange process. First time and repeat home exchangers can benefit from The Home Exchange Guide: How to Find Your Free Home Away From Home (Poyeen Publishing), which provides an easy-to-follow process anyone with a home can use. Home exchanging, a common practice in the U.S. and abroad for more than 50 years, allows travelers to swap homes with their counterparts in other locations during their vacation or business trip.  Every year, an estimated 250,000 home exchanges take place.

“This is the first book on the subject to combine modern tools, like email and the Internet, with time tested home exchange concepts,” said Baker. “Every year, tens of thousands of travelers take advantage of home exchanges to save on accommodation expenses; and experience the lifestyle of their host families.”

 The new book guides readers through the home exchange process to find out:  If they are good exchange candidates; how and where to look for exchangers; what to look for in a home; questions to ask; pitfalls to avoid; how to prepare their home for an exchange; what to expect and do during the exchange; and wrapping up loose ends when the exchange is over. The 187-page The Home Exchange Guide: How to Find Your Free Home Away From Home retails for $19.95 and is available through booksellers nationwide and directly from the publisher, Poyeen Publishing, at www.poyeen.com.
