Search Preferences

Reverse Search: You can also choose to show only listings belonging to members who have your area in their Destinations Wishlist .

Exchange Filters: If you want to see only listings open for exchange, put a checkmark in the box next to "Open for exchange". This will remove all offers not currently open for exchange from your search results.

Hotlist: You can also choose to show only the listings of members looking for a last minute exchange .

And you can sort the listings that you see by:

  • Most recent: These are the newest and freshest listings in our database and this is the default sort order. You can be sure that the listings you see first, no matter what your search criteria are the newest we have to offer.
  • Country: This is useful if you have not specified a country for your search.
  • Listing number: Especially good if you are looking for your own listing. You can place your search and sort by listing number to make it easier to find your listing in all the others.
