Hospitality Networks

A Hospitality Exchange, or a Hospitality Network, is a service that provides a platform for travellers to connect with homeowners in the cities and countries to which they are travelling to arrange accommodation, whether free, in exchange for money or services, or home-for-home swapping.

There are many benefits to opting for a hospitality network, including saving on accommodation costs, creating personal connections with locals from a different culture, local perspective, and opportunities to stay in areas underserved by hotels or hostels.
