Stay 4 FreeFree: All time (US$60/year membership)

If you’re leaving your home empty when travelling, you may want to consider using Stay 4 Free. It’s a site that lets homeowners exchange their homes when vacationing. That way, instead of paying for hotels or hostels, you’ll get to live like locals do in your travel destination, for free. Stay 4 Free offers free basic membership that allows you to send and receive home exchange requests. However, in order to reply of these requests, you’ll be prompted to pay for the premium membership that cost $60/year. It may be worth looking into if you’re a homeowner and you travel quite a bit.
