Exchange nights not money.
I had just found out about Nightswapping when I was back in Milano this summer and I still had no idea I was going to be traveling yet. I liked its refreshing concept. Swapping nights?
When you host someone on your home you accumulate “coins” that you can exchange once you are traveling yourself. They are about to launch the new application. Just in case, you are finding hard to decide where to go next it will give you a hand by “matching” with other hosts. Also, if you do not have the extra space to host, no worries! You can also buy or pay for the rental of the place.
Our hosts were a Russian couple, very welcoming and accommodating. We didn’t wanted to leave! The condo was located in a great area and they even had guest parking. Which for a city like LA is always a nightmare. It was an easy breezy stay. Too bad we didn’t have enough time to take advantage of the pool, ohh well next time around :)
