Exchange etiquette

Welcome to the world of People Like Us home exchange! Exchanging homes is a great way to spend your holiday immersing yourself in a different culture, adopting the local lifestyle and making lasting friendships along the way. However, a successful home exchange also has a number of conditions that must be met and a certain etiquette. When you agree an exchange, it is a commitment. Here are the 10 etiquette rules for a successful home exchange for all parties involved. 1. Good and clear communication from start to finish is essential: be polite and always respond as quickly as possible. 2. Be transparent and honest regarding your information and your home's (i.e. the number of people in your group, their age, travel dates, number of beds, etc.). 3. Make your wishes...

People Like Us Home Exchange update

It’s been a pretty big month here at People Like Us Home Exchange. I’ve done two big releases in the last week which have made some substantial changes to the site. The first is that you can now search with the map. After doing a search, you can move the map or zoom and it will narrow down the homes that are shown to you. I've rectified something I introduced in the last release. All the pins are back regardless of how many pages of homes there are. You'll also notice that, as you page, the homes will refresh faster without having to reload the page. I've also done a big new update to exchanges 🏡 in the People Like Us system to make things simpler and fix a few things that people have asked for quite a while. You'll see the changes if you click on Exchanges (handshake icon 🤝):...

Correction of Exchange

Is there a way to correct an exchange? We just accepted an exchange, but it will be a hosted exchange on our part. Not sure how to fix the exchange type from simultaneous vs. hosted.

Globes: What happens now?

Thanks all for the overwhelming response. The date and time you activated your listings is recorded and you don't need to do anything else. The Globes system will start in August. Until then, just use the system as you have in the past. Your Globe will be visible when the system starts but you won't see anything different until then. If you're not on our Facebook group, https://www.facebook.com/groups/peoplelikeus.world/, please join us as this is the best way to advertise your listing and discuss your plans with other members. Thanks again.

Last minute

Hi everyone, we suddenly have availability to do a swap this summer. Is there an area where we can post jsut for last minute exchanges?

Last day, last reminder: Globe PLU offer closing today

Globes will be PLU's new system of tokens for exchanges. 🌎🌍🌏 The system will start in August but to get a Globe for free at the start of the system, list and activate (press the button that says Activate) your home by the end of today. If you've already done so, you don't have to do anything. More information to follow in about a month.

PLU Globes to be allocated to all homes registered by midnight Sunday

A number of people have sent me emails to ask if homes that are already on the site also receive a Globe. The answer to that is Yes! 😃 Other people asked about what "activated" means. An active listing can be seen on the site. If you inactivate it, you can see it but others can't. Globes will be allocated, one per active listing, to all homes on the site as at midnight Sunday. If you have more than one listing in your member profile, you will receive more than one Globe. If you are already listed and activated, that counts, no matter how long ago. The home must stay activated though. They will be allocated around the end of July or beginning of August. If they are no longer active at that time a Globe will not be allocated. I hope that helps clarify things.
