How it works - Accommodation

Swop and Stay is an exclusive platform that facilitates a trade exchange between holiday accommodation establishments. No money is exchanged for accommodation. As a member, you use your tokens to pay. Membership costs less than the average of 2 nights’ accommodation and when you register you receive tokens to the value of 10 nights’ accommodation for two people.

Upon registration 20 tokens are allocated to your account.
  • Step 1: Search for accommodation and request availability
  • Step 2: Once availability is confirmed you can make your booking via the website

What does it cost to swop:
  • 1-2 guests: 2 tokens per night
  • Thereafter: 1 token per person per night
Examples:
  • 1 guest stays for two nights: 2 tokens per night = 4 tokens total spend
  • 2 guests stay for two nights: 2 tokens per night = 4 tokens total spend
  • 4 guests stay for two nights: 4 tokens per night = 8 tokens total spend
How to earn additional tokens:
