Swap experience: lovely home swap in the Algarve
Excellent home swap in the Algarve "We had a non simutaneous home exchange with Eileen and Terry in August/September 2016. Eileen, with whom I had the communication regarding the swap, was extremely easy and pleasant to deal with and was always very responsive. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in their lovely, spacious apartment in Ferragudo, a quaint fishing village. Their home was well equipped and in an excellent location to explore the Algarve by car which we did extensively. We loved finding little bays to spend the day by the sea and also enjoyed the fantastic, fresh and reasonably priced seafood, the cataplana dishes being our favourite! Swapping with Eileen and Terry is highly recommended. Thanks again for making our Summer 2016 holiday so enjoyable." - Linda

Highlights of the home exchange:
  1. Location, location, location.
  2. The lovely apartment
  3. Fantastic seafood in the area

GuardHog: home insurance for the UK home sharing market
It's always important to make sure that your home insurance covers the period when your exchange guests will be staying in your home, and to check that it doesn't exclude things like accidental damage and public liability. Thankfully most Home Base Holidays members do not have any issues obtaining cover from their existing home insurance companies. However, on some occasions insurers unfamiliar with home swapping have been known to refuse cover and therefore we have helped GuardHog create a specific home-swapping insurance, Host Cover.  

GuardHog provides top up cover in addition to your own home insurance for the period that your guests will be staying in your home. It's a very flexible and reasonably priced service where you only pay for the nights that your guests will be in your home. It covers among others, things such as accidental damage, theft by unforced entry, and public liability.
