Adventure Travel with Teens made Easy with Home Exchange

At People Like Us, we understand the wonders (and challenges) of raising teenagers, and picking where the family goes for summer vacations. It’s a big responsibility. Depending on your teen, they might be highly opinionated, and difficult to please. Having them join in on the home exchange deliberation ensures everybody’s happy, and the adventure and relaxation can proceed without any hiccups. Many people and families on People Like Us are in the same boat—they’re looking for a place where an adventure can be had. Thrill-seekers often have exhausted their options locally, and are well aware of the best places to go, and are looking to branch out. Maybe you are, too, and that’s where the beauty of home exchange can happen: once you find a family that is looking for the same things, you can both guide and be guided on where the action is in your locale, and in your next travel destination! All it takes is creating an account to start connecting with other adventurous families with teenagers, and you can determine the best new place the whole family can enjoy together without breaking the bank. The best part? If both parties agree, you can stay as long as desired. You can’t really do that with hotels without incurring considerable charges, and you might not be able to best maximize the associated travel costs. People Like Us takes pride in its multicultural user base, and the guidelines that everyone has adhered to in making such a cost-effective travel alternative possible. If you believe you grasp the essence of what PLU is about, and you’re ready for adventure for the whole family, sign-up for free and unlock a whole world that you never thought possible.

An Alternative to Traditional Vacation Rentals

Does your teenager refer to 5-star hotels as “mid?” Are they only in it for the WiFi? Bring the sense of adventure back into your family vacations and experience something genuine by living like a local and leveraging your home exchange partner’s expert advice. You’ll never look at traditional accommodation (or their costs) the same way again.

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.

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.

A home exchange is a fantastic way for your family to experience exciting outdoor activities and adventures off the usual tourist path. You'll have the chance to explore local hiking trails, try out extreme sports, and even participate in community events that involve challenging outdoor activities.

Look for home listings that are close to mountains for hiking, rivers perfect for rafting, or popular rock climbing spots. Also, keep an eye out for homes near adventure parks or local events that focus on outdoor activities.
