HomeExchange.com is the world's leading network for home-exchanging, with more than 400,000 homes in 187 countries.[2]

How it works

HomeExchange is a platform that allows people to exchange their house or apartment. There are two 'plans'; 'Essential' (€10 per exchange night to purchase HomeExchange Service) and 'Optimal' (€130 per year for unlimited exchanges). Members earn points for inviting people to stay at their home or buy additional points from homeexchange.com. These points can be used to stay at other homes. Exchanges can be reciprocal or non-reciprocal.[3]

History

In 2011, Emmanuel Arnaud and 22 families experienced in home exchange established the GuestToGuest company.

In 2013, Charles-Edouard Girard joined the company as chairman.

In November 2013, GuestToGuest acquired Itamos.[4]

In June 2014, GuestToGuest raised €1 million from the Alyan Group investment fund, Aigis, and from angel investors.[5]

In June 2015, GuestToGuest raised €4 million from Mutuelle d'assurance des instituteurs de France (MAIF).[6]

In July 2015, GuestToGuest raised nearly €1 million from existing investors.[5]

In June 2016, GuestToGuest acquired Trampolinn.[7]

In March 2017, GuestToGuest merged with HomeExchange.com, founded in 1992 by Ed Kushins, and since 2019 continued under that name.[8]

In 2019, HomeExchange is part of the Next40, the annual selection of the 40 most promising start-ups in France.
