Dear fellow 'Accommodation hosts'

Do you know about the organisation called "Accommodation Swap"? Take a look at http://www.accommodationswap.com/sa_how_it_works.htm
This is one of the best kept secrets and huge perk for those of us who offer guest accommodation.
When most people hear about this, they are put off because they think it is a reciprocal swapping system but it is not! It works on a credit/debit point system
when you stay a night it will cost you one point, when you host a night, you will earn a point. The registration process is very easy.

Once you pay the admin fee, you immediately get 12 credits which gives you 12 nights free accommodation (2 people sharing) at an establishment that is a member of "Accommodation Swap". You select the accommodation establishment by browsing on www.accommodationswap.com
and contacting the host to check availability.We use it all the time for short stay-overs if we need to go somewhere on business and we also use it a lot for longer holidays.We have hosted numbers of Accommodation Swap guests and this is a great opportunity to net-work with colleagues in the hospitality industry.

A great perk is that you can also use your points to book accommodation for family and friends, which is a wonderful gift for a loved one!

It works on a night for a night system, and grading does not count, so even if you have no grading, you can do a swap with a 5-star establishment!

There are 7 establishments in McGregor who already belong to Accommodation Swap (Cape Country Cottages, The Loft, Iona Cottage,Le Bonheur, Haywards House, Temenos and Karoo Cottage) and the more there are, the merrier as it offers potential guests more choice.
It is a wonderful way of marketing our village and I encourage you all to think about joining. If you do, I would really appreciate it if you
could mention my name so that they know where the referral came from.

What does it cost? The best news is that it is really affordable: the once off joining fee is R100.00 and then the annual fee is R720.00.
12 night's accommodation for R720.00 = R60.00 per couple per night! Who can beat that?

Let me know if you have any questions, and I hope you will be happy 'swappers' soon.
Regards,
Jennifer Johnson

Hallo Mike

I think I did mention this previously. I am one of the members who accept
as many bookings as I have enquiries for, even in peak season, with the only
condition that I must have a room available when the enquiry is made. I
would never have been able to use all of my credits. However, I've been
making my points work for me. I deal with travel agencies a lot and in the
past I've always sent them a complimentary voucher for a weekend at Villa Le
View. Unfortunately the consultants cannot always afford to come to Durban.
I am now offering them a weekend close to where they are situated, thus
using Accommodation Swap points to book them for a weekend away. This way I
get back MUCH MORE in value than what I've "spent" by allowing swaps at my
facility.

I just want to say once again: Accommodation Swap is the best system I've
ever joined. I have holiday club points and at one stage we had normal time
share. We even had a house in Marloth Park that we used for family
holidays. NONE of them gave me better value for money than Accommodation
Swap

Hi Mike,

I wish to place on record that we have only been members for just over a
year and a half and have had some lovely holidays in Cape Town, two
different places in The Drakensburg, 4 in Zululand and also the South Coast
of Natal - one of which, we've returned a second time. And, we've met some
really great owners/people who have actually stayed at our venue on the
Accommodation Swap system and the places at which we have stayed. Long may
Accommodation Swap last. Certainly performing an extremely good service to
accommodation owners.

I cannot wait to 'go on holiday once again'. Just waiting for our B & B
Locum to return from her overseas trip.
Kind regards
Monique

Become members of Accommodation Swap ASAP! I have been a member for about 6 years now and have had "free" 3, 4 and 5 star accommodation across South Africa to the value of about R90 000 and have met many very friendly and interesting people in the industry. Accommodation Swap is well run and there are no catches I promise! It is a genuiune win/win situation for all - you fill empty beds during quiet times and stay at quality accommodation in return - at a minimal cost to join which includes some complimentary nights to get you going, and a very small annual subscription. What a pleasure!

Well said, Derrick and Suenette. people do not believe me when I try to explain to them about Accom swap, they always want to know "what is the catch ? ". This is truly the first "Conscious business" I have come across (other than my own, of course !!)
We all appreciate you, Mike and co

Hi Mike,

I really want to thank you for this no-nonsense barter system and your efficient maintaining of it! I can only speak of the experience we've had so far with the highest of praise. Our stay has always been excellent, the members are friendly and willing to work with the system. I even got engaged on one of our trips end last year!

Well done to your team and all the owners on this site who makes it absolutely worth it!

Dear Mike
I am so impressed with accommodation swap! It was the best decision I have made since I started my Guest House! Not only from a marketing point of view, but also meeting friends in hospitality!
Warm Regards

Thanks

On behalf of Alison and my self we would like to thank you and your team for this amazing "club" you have set up. The simplicity and ease at which it operates is truly awesome. The rules are logical, concise, easy to follow and work well.

We absolutely support any action that has to be taken to
those that break them. With out them it will all fall to pieces.
Thanks
Regards
