Mission Statement

The Home Exchange Rotary Fellowship is an international group dedicated to home exchanges between Rotarians. We believe home exchanges enhance the Rotary experience by opening the doors to new friendships and broadening international understanding.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

There are four types of exchanges: Simultaneous: you and another member exchange your homes at the same time. Non-simultaneous: you exchange with another member but you travel at different times. If you don't know when you'll travel for the second leg, you can leave the dates blank and bank a future exchange. Non-reciprocal: in this type of exchange, you stay in another member's home but they do not come to yours. In a non-reciprocal exchange, you have full use of the home. In People Like Us, you can host a non-reciprocal exchange just to make you feel good, or you can do it for a Globe, PLU's token system. When you earn a Globe, you can use it to travel to someone else's home. Hospitality: also a non-reciprocal exchange in that only you travel to the other member's home and they don't come to yours, but in a hospitality stay, you only have partial use of the home and the other member will also be there. You can also use a Globe for a hospitality stay.

Home exchange is a vacation accommodation solution where people swap their homes with other travellers without money changing hands. It allows families to stay in their exchange partner's home while the other party stays in theirs. Home exchange can be reciprocal (simultaneous or non-simultaneous) or non-reciprocal.

Home exchange involves a free swap of homes between two parties, whereas renting a vacation home involves paying a rental fee. Home exchange offers a cost-effective and immersive way to experience different destinations.

The exchange itself is free, but to access all the benefits of home exchange, a yearly membership fee applies when joining People Like Us. https://peoplelikeus.world/premium

Yes, home exchange can involve various accommodations like houses, apartments, villas, and houseboats. Exchanges often involve different types of homes depending on location and preferences. People Like Us offers a plethora of accommodations to explore and enjoy.

Open communication and clear expectations are vital for a memorable and enjoyable exchange. Discuss any questions or concerns with your partner beforehand. Here are a few tips to prepare your home for a successful home exchange: > Clean thoroughly: Create a welcoming space for your guests. > Clear out space: Ensure enough closet and storage room for them. > Provide clear instructions: Detailed info on amenities helps them feel at ease. > Arrange key exchange: Coordinate with your partner for a smooth arrival. > Prepare for arrival: Add a personal touch with a warm welcome gesture.

Home exchange is based on trust and reciprocity, with platforms implementing safety measures like identity verification and secure messaging. Open communication and clear expectations with potential partners ensure a safe exchange.

The Rotary Home Exchange Fellowship was started over 50 years ago. With the emergence of the Internet for arranging home exchanges the Fellowship decided to partner with commercial home exchange agencies that could provide the needed scale and technology. People Like Us Home Exchange has been chosen by the Fellowship because of the quality of its technology, management, and customer base. The management and members of People Like Us share Rotary's commitment to international friendship and integrity.

Yes. Rotary members can click on My Communities on the main menu, then on the house icon to find other Rotarians. There's also a special Rotary badge on Rotary listings, visible only to Rotary members.

Rotary members are just like any other PLU members with only one difference. They can identify each other as Rotary members but, for all other purposes, Rotary members are PLU's like any other. Rotary members can exchange with non-Rotary and vice versa. We're all a part of one big happy family.

People Like Us and Rotary share the same values. Like PLU's, Rotary is an organisation full of trusted, kind, generous, service-oriented people who will make great PLU's. We always want more people and homes on the site so we have more choice, and this is a great way for us to build our membership, and expose People Like Us to large group of people who will integrate into our community really well.
