How it works
The basic principle of Swop Your Stay is that you allow affiliated members to stay in available rooms of your accommodation, that you earn so-called ‘credits’ and that you with these earned ‘credits’ can stay all over the world with all affiliated members of the Swop Your Stay community without payment of money.
The annual contribution at Swop Your Stay is €195, - (ex. VAT) Each member receives 6 credits annually for this.
When you register your account you will receive a welcome bonus of 10 credits.
You will receive 6 credits for recruiting a new member for Swop Your Stay.
All meals, drinks and activities are not included in the Swop and therefore are a way for the host to earn cash next to the credits the host will receive.
You pay for sleeping at an affiliated member of Swop Your Stay with so-called “credits”. You will receive so-called credits for hosting an affiliated member at your accommodation.
You pay / receive 1 credit per person who stays overnight. With a minimum of 2 credits per room.
