No, they do not. In fact, most of our trips do not include two members staying in each other’s homes at the exact same time.

Our “give a night to get a night” policy gives members greater flexibility by allowing members to host others and bank those nights, later using them to stay at a different member home later on.

Today, one night given equals one night earned, regardless of the city or home size, and there is no way to purchase nights – members earn nights only by contributing to the community.

We believe that giving a night to a member of the community is a gift, regardless of your square footage – and we believe that those who give to the community should be able to receive from the community in return.
