Happy exchanging  …… Valerie      Visitors start you Free Trial 

Tips for your listing

1.      Open to offers is not enough by itself. You must have a stated destination plus ‘Open to offers’.  

2.      You need to complete your listing for it to be published.

3.      A first  photo of a splendid view or local attraction beats a kitchen or bathroom.

4.      Some Members have hidden listings.  Please make sure you complete your listing.

5.      2 Members have no listing at all ? If it is unavailable you can ‘Hide’

In all over 50% of listings need attention

What is HomeLink Local?


HomeLink NZ wants to help Local tourism & our NZ Members



Our group of NZ members, most of whom love to travel overseas have enjoyed Local, Australia/New Zealand holidays in these difficult times.  We will keep this option of Local travel permanently to suit you.


There are lots of opportunities in some fabulous tourist areas and cities. We can all help in some small way by supporting Tourist shops and restaurants and having an enjoyable holiday at 'Home'.  While we are restricted to Local travel  you can simply  enter NZ in the 
Search box .

Not a Member ?  Have a look at what is available and see if you would like to holiday with HomeLink, then click to JOIN or take a months FREE TRIAL

What's the catch ?.....

The only catch is that  you need  a home to exchange  preferably in a holiday area or a main centre because our Members are looking for a holiday.

 

If you have a Holiday Home or Motor Home you are in an unbelievable position because you can do non simultaneous exchanges so easily. You can add your Holiday home to your listing for no extra charge.  

Please tell your friends with Holiday homes about this great opportunity

Dear Members please help us to help you

It is a challenge to advertise our wonderful HomeLink holidays and we are asking for your help so that we can help you.

It is difficult to convince an increasingly non trusting population that we have a group of like minded Members
who love taking holidays in the comfort of a home and not a hotel, motel or B&B

Dear Members please help us to help you

It is a challenge to advertise our wonderful HomeLink holidays and we are asking for your help so that we can help you.



It is difficult to convince an increasingly non trusting population that we have a group of like minded Members  who love taking holidays in the comfort of a home and not a hotel, motel or B&B

        *To say that our holidays cost next to nothing makes it unbelievable for them.

        *To say that you receive a gift, a welcome meal, many other extras and a clean & tidy house at the end of it  makes it even more unbelievable.

        *To say that our Members have comfortable homes in Tourist areas cannot be believed at all!

        *  Why some of  the thousands of people with Holiday Homes don't use HomeLink for non simultaneous exchanges is beyond my comprehension!



We are so lucky but we need your help and here is how you can help us to help you.

Introduce a friend or family Member…………….

        *You get 3 months added to your Membership

        *More places for us all  to visit

        *More Members for us and more happy people

Your valuable Local knowledge may help us.  Do you know a Local publication where we can advertise. 

Please CONTACT US if you have information that can help us.  Pssst.....  The photo is not us !
