From the USA to Chamonix: Love Home Swap makes it easy for skiers to save while on the slopes

Home exchange site's new, dedicated Ski Swaps page lists stylish chalets worldwide.

Brighton, UK (PRWEB UK) 5 November 2012

Despite research showing skiing holidays declined by 1.8% last year, certain locations – and demographics – are bucking the trend.

Destinations including France and Austria reported growth whereas North American destinations saw fewer visitors last year, a result of tough economic conditions and a small decline in the independent travel sector. School skiing trips were also down by 6 per cent, as parents struggled to pay for them.

But there is one key group of winter sports enthusiasts that remain unaffected by financial turbulence – and their number is growing. They are the home swappers.

This year, leading home exchange company Lovehomeswap.com has recognised rising demand by introducing a dedicated Ski Swaps page.

“We read the statistics about fewer people being able to afford skiing holidays with interest,” said founder Debbie Wosskow. “Accommodation is a huge proportion of the cost of any holiday, especially if you have a family or you're going to an expensive city or country. Our service enables travellers to save money on hotel bills by swapping their property with another Love Home Swap member – with nice personal touches thrown in and more space, too. It's no wonder that smart travellers are turning to home swapping.”

The Ski Swaps page lists stylish chalets located around the world, from properties in classic USA destinations such as Colorado and Vermont to the cutest, hippest resorts and the best slopes in Europe. Members can search by location, size and other criteria including family- or pet- friendliness.

“With Love Home Swap, members can arrange unlimited exchanges in over 100+ countries, liaise directly with other members and keep in touch via our Facebook app, all for a nominal joining fee” said Debbie. “And they save an average of $3,487 per holiday! We call it ‘ski for free' – of course, the lift passes and transport are not included, but with so many savings and advantages, we know our members love to hit the slopes with more money to spend on enjoying the après-ski!”
