Many Londoners, aware that their city is a popular vacation spot, are interested in apartment or flat swapping to have free accommodation in another destination. Family homes in London suburbs are also offered in exchange for vacations abroad. Home swapping is actually very popular in England. It is first and foremost a way to reduce travel costs but it also provides the comforts of a home and immersion into the local culture.
