Welcome to The Jolly Guest, the leading platform in the spirit of home exchange with which you will travel around the world, in an easier, safer and more friendly way.
My family and I have traveled home swapping all over the world and that has made us love home exchange. To this day, we cannot conceive of any other way of traveling and for this reason, we decided to create The Jolly Guest, a totally altruistic exchange community in which human sentiment, trust and generosity prevail over any other value.

The Jolly Guest was created for the love of home exchange and to enjoy it with thousands of people. For this reason, there is no annual payment or fee and we only ask you to use the community as well as the web correctly to continue growing in a healthy, respectful and friendly way.
Of course! The more the better. The more people we are the better, and the more opportunities we will have to exchange in different places. You will receive 1 Extra JollyKeys for each friend who joins the comunity. You can see all the information here.

No. Only the photo you choose as your cover picture will be shown publicly on the web. The rest of the photos and information about your home can only be viewed by registered members of TheJolly Guest community.
It is the verification badge, which is very important for users. It means that email, phone and home are verified by The Jolly Guest team.
Of course, you just have to write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org explaining your needs.
All exchanges must be agreed within the platform in order to be properly registered, but once the date of your trip approaches, you can always keep a closer communication through another channel.
We know that traveling in good company can be funnier. The Jolly Guest does not put any obstacle as long as the person requesting the exchange, is registered on the platform and offers his home. However, the final decision is always made by the host who will receive you in his home. Therefore, it is with him whom you should discuss the conditions of the exchange.
Yes, when you register your home there is the option to mark "dog, cat or gluten free home". So, when the search filter is activated with any of these three options, only the homes free of allergies will be shown.
Of course, in the search filter you can select the option "pets welcome". This way, it will be much easier for you to find homes where they will always be welcome.
You can narrow down the home exchange search by activating the filters you need, such as the number of people you will be traveling, if they accept pets, if you are allergic to cats or if you need an elevator.
However, we recommend activating only the necessary filters, so as not to limit the results too much.
To help you in your exchanges in case it is not possible to do it reciprocal, we created the JollyKeys system. You will be able to stay at another member's home without them staying at yours. You will transfer as many JollyKeys as nights you stay at their home. Your host can use them to travel to other destination of their choice.
For full details on how to use the JollyKeys and how to get them, see this file.
Canceling an exchange always generates serious extortion in travel plans, therefore, it is only advisable to cancel it due to force majeure, and always discuss it with your guest or host beforehand. Remember that good communication is the basis of home exchange.
You should always keep in mind that a cancellation with advance notification, and due to force majeure, is not the same as a last minute cancellation, due to a change of decision. Therefore, if you cancel your exchange as a guest, the decision to return the JollyKeys will be up to your host. In that case, your host must write us an email with your personal data, exchange code and cancellation reason. Our team will return the JollyKeys to your account.
We are very close! Send us an email to email@example.com and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
