Moving mountains becomes reality for some

Moving mountains becomes reality for some

Brand new home swapping club "Snow Swappers" have created a service exclusively for home owners in ski resorts around the world. The website is designed to give owners, who feel the need for a holiday away from home, the chance to explore a new resort at minimal cost.

In the current economic climate, everyone with the exception of the super-rich will be looking to minimise their costs and be smart about their finances. Second home owners that have an apartment or chalet in a ski resort are no exception and often feel obliged to use their holiday property in order to save money. Snow Swappers are therefore hoping to provide a guilt free service which sets up home swaps on a budget.

For those who live in resorts all year round the company can also help to set up the perfect summer or winter break at minimal cost. The Snow Swappers annual membership fee is 46 Euros and for a limited time only is offering a year’s free membership. The one off fee gives access to all properties featured on the website.

There are no other charges applicable after the membership fee and arrangements between property owners can be easily organised through the websites built in functions. Whether it is an exchange with a resort in North America, Chile or as far as New Zealand the website can make it happen.

    Some eight trains a day link Vienna with Budapest (3,5 hours) .Trains are uneltifpl and point-to-point tickets are cheap (in the region of 20 euro from budapest to bratislava and 10 euro bratislava to vienna), you should not be worried by the prospect of having to buy more than one ticket to cover your trip (although you could theoretically buy one ticket budapest-vienna via bratislava which is valid 2 months, if you really want to do so). you should consider that bratislava to vienna is a very short trip and allows commuting back and forth in a day if you so wish.
