“Accommodation in exchange”, an increasingly popular tourist phenomenon

Reading time: 3 minutes

Popular abroad, exchange accommodation is starting to be of interest to Romanians as well. They offer the apartments or houses they have for others with similar facilities in the areas they want to visit.

Anything can be exchanged for anything

A group was created on Facebook for people interested in these exchanges, notes ziare.com.

“This is a group for all those who want to go on holidays, don’t want to pay a fortune, but also want to try something new, because they will be staying in other people’s houses. Apartments, villas, cabins, palaces, yachts, boats, cabins anything can be exchanged for anything.

It can be an exchange in Romania, one between Romania or any other area in the world or one between different areas in the world.

Romanians are everywhere and go everywhere. And they help each other.

Please support each other, be honest with each other, clean up after yourselves (like at home). Those who disappoint us will be removed from the group.

After any exchange, both hosts will give feedback so that the group knows in the future if it is ok to exchange with those hosts or not. We will keep a record of the positive and negative ratings, because information is still lost on Facebook.

Those who ask for an exchange are asked to specify the period, location, number of rooms, facilities and also put a picture or two. Whoever answers, the same”, the description of the group states.
