Questions? We’re here to help

Is there a commitment to apply?

No! There’s no commitment to swap, and applying is free.

Can I swap with Kindred if I rent my home?

Absolutely! Because there is no financial exchange between the guest and host, using Kindred is not the same as listing your home on a short-term rental website. If in doubt, we recommend chatting with your landlord or checking your rental contract.

How is Kindred different than renting out my home on Airbnb or VRBO?

Kindred is a members-only community for home swapping, not a vacation rental platform. Each member must host their own home in order to stay as a guest, increasing trust between members since everyone has skin in the game. Additionally, because there is no financial exchange between the guest and the host, members are trusted peers looking to travel more frequently vs. professional hosts looking to rent their investment home.

Can I pay to use Kindred without hosting my own home?

Not at this time. At its core, Kindred is a community based on trust and reciprocity, and we believe that sharing your own home is critical to increasing trust between members since everyone has skin in the game.
