Trip report: first time swap, LA to the UK
Cheltenham home swap offer (HE24307)
"Margaret and Peter made this, our first house exchange, incredibly easy. Their home was wonderful - a beautiful house and very warm (it was a winter time exchange). They appreciated our home and we were very happy to meet and welcome them to our place before we flew to the UK. I cannot recommend them and their lovely home highly enough. Thank you both of you."   Polly  (Culver City, USA)

"Thank you Polly, we've never had a disappointing exchange but this was our longest and most successful exchange; somehow your home was the Stateside version of ours. We felt completely at home and love your special corner of LA."

Home swap tip: share local recommendations 
We always recommend that you leave a welcome pack for your home swap guests. As well as practical household information and emergency numbers, also make sure to leave your guests your local knowledge. Your 'locals' travel tips can often be some of the most rewarding parts of an exchange and help to introduce your guests to local attractions not found in most guide books.
