About Swapoffi

Frequently Asked Questions

Swapoffi is a community of verified home swappers who swap homes with each other, so we don’t have to pay for accommodation, when we work and travel.

Traditionally, home exchanges are for families for annual vacations. Swapoffi is different as our members each have a home office space in their homes, so members can work whilst we travel.
Read members swap stories.

There are two ways to swap homes with Swapoffi:

  • Two Way Swap
  • This is a direct swap when you exchange your home with another member, for the same dates and same duration. No Swappie credits are earned or spent in a two way swap.
  • One Way Swap
  • This is when you stay in another member’s home, which is available for swapping, but they do not stay in your home, at that time or maybe never.
    The host earns Swappie credits to spend in the future, with any member. The guest “spends” Swappie credits to stay.
    No money is exchanged between host and guest in any swap scenario.

Swapoffi is 100% owned by its co-founders.

We are remote workers who also love to travel. We couldn’t find a home and home office swap, and so we set up Swapoffi to solve our own problem.

Swapoffi is made from two words - ‘swap’ and ‘office’. Get it? swap office, or Swapoffi. Genius, we know ☺.

    Our members are not landlords and so do not profit from accommodation that could otherwise be used by local people.
  • Community based
  • Swapoffi is a community built on verifications, conversations and swaps amongst like-minded people. We are self-funded. Help us spread the word about Swapoffi, ask your friends to join us.
