Word of Mouth!!

Word of mouth recommendation is our best form of promotion, and we really appreciate the fact that many of you recommend us to your friends and acquaintances. This enables us to spread the word without escalating our marketing and subscription costs, thereby increasing the exchange choices available to all. As so many of you have taken the trouble to keep in touch with us over so many years, we are sure that Green Theme International Home Exchangers are some of the nicest people around. We are always very happy to hear of your exchange experiences that you think may be of interest to others (these provide good copy for the GTI Newsletter), or to receive and pass on any advice that you feel may be of benefit to other prospective home exchangers via the Green Theme International Home Exchange Blog, 'Home Exchange Travel' .


Just FYI we have arranged another swap for next year in Northland of NZ. The folks have a daughter living near us here in the State. It is a non-simultaneous exchange and they even know the other couple we exchanged with 3 years ago! It starts to feel like a group of friends after a while. Thanks, Ann

"Our travelling days are over for awhile, but we've been very happy with GTI and have recommended you to many people in Victoria and elsewhere. We arranged a great exchange with some wonderful people in England last summer. Once we're back in the travelling mode, we'll be joining again. Thank you!

"Yesterday evening I joined your organization. I must say that that was véry easy, so many thanks for that! A perfect internet system. Now we're hoping to find a nice holiday address...
met vriendelijke groet, Ysbrand Visser, Netherlands"

"Our exchange was fantastic - we went to Dana Point, one hour south of Los Angeles, California. Absolutely wonderful house with pool, private beach access and great car exchange. We are trying again for this summer, so fingers crossed. Best wishes.

"We have negotiated a home swap with HE451 and will be spending about 7 weeks at Bath, UK, in August/Sept. We are very excited about our forthcoming holiday and have recommended your site to some of our friends who are considering following us into the home swap fraternity.
Regards Warren (Australia)"

"We're just back from our first exchange with a couple from Ramsbottom, England. The entire holiday was more then we had hoped for. It was fantastic all the way. Now we'll start looking into our next exchange. Thank you.

"Of course, we are interested to renew our membership of Green Theme International. We had received a lot of offers during the last year. In fact, we may go to England the next summer. We think this way of travelling is very interesting. We have speak about it with many friends and one of them has became a membership of Green Theme too. By the way it´s not only the trip, writing and on the chat with the other family you could improve a foreign language.
Kind regards. Carmen Ruiz Muñoz."

"We have had some really great home exchanges through Green Theme International to Italy, Switzerland and Spain but this year we had the best exchange ever to Hong Kong. It was the holiday of a lifetime! It was a tremendous success and no hitches at all from the minute we both agreed to exchange to on our return finding an immaculate house! We love our exchange holidays because "homes" are so much more comfortable and friendly than accommodation on package holidays etc. We are already looking forward to next year's holiday - long may your organisation continue!"

"Dear Kath.............thanks for your reminder. We have just started our exciting 3 months exchange with NZ couple. As always thanks for all your help. Very best wishes.

"Pleased to say first 2 exchanges here (Melbourne and Canberra) have gone well. Leave here mid January for Sydney and Blue Mountains and up East Coast to 3rd exchange, then fly to Perth for 4th exchange and home on 6 April (for a rest) via Singapore and Malaysia! "

"Just taking this opportunity to say how pleased we (and our exchangers) have been with various holidays over the last 3 years. . . we are not renewing our membership again this year as we have already made arrangements for the next 2 years!! The places we have visited (mainly France, Prague and UK) have all lived up to our expectations and we are still in correspondence with previous exchangers who hope to return to our farmhouse in Tuscany at some future date. We shall be back no doubt when our contacts run out. Thanks for your efficiency and goodwill."

"We have just returned from 8 weeks at UK Bath-HE12451. Our first home swap and thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. We did not meet our swap partners but every thing was fine when we returned home, just as we left it. We are looking at swapping to Honolulu next year, I have up dated our site but would like to include some photos. how can I do this?
