From the 1st of May travel-hungry Brits who are fully vaccinated will be able to holiday in Cyprus without needing to have a negative Covid test or quarantine.
To avoid over paying for accommodation or worse not being able to book anywhere due to accommodation shortages why not give home swapping a go instead? Global home-swapping platform Love Home Swap has a selection of private properties in Cyprus in less crowded destinations, away from busy hotels.
From spacious stone villas to sea-view apartments, Love Home Swap has a home for everybody seeking a sunny Cyprus getaway post lockdown. Please see below for a short description of each home and do let me know if you need anymore information or images!
What is a home-swap? Members can choose from a classic, simultaneous swap, where they swap houses with someone else, either at the same time or on different dates, or a non-simultaneous points swap, allowing them to travel without having to match their plans with another member.
How much does it cost? Standard membership is £10 a month billed annually and members earn points for hosting, which they redeem when they decide to travel – they simply pay a small service fee based on the length of trip. Home swapping is a simple, cost-effective way for our members to travel at a fraction of the traditional price. With 36% of our members travelling four times a year, the average Love Home Swap member saves £3,400 on holiday accommodation by choosing to home swap.
