Free Vacations? Read to learn how
You can travel almost anywhere in the world and stay free in private homes or luxury hotels. How? By one or both of the following methods:
Join a Cooperative Exchange and Travel Club (listed below) for a small annual membership fee. As a Travel Club Member you will receive a list of as many as 5,000 names and addresses from all over the U.S. and throughout the world. Only members receive the list. As a member, you offer your home as a stopping point for compatible people when it is convenient for you. In return, you stay for free in any of the over 5,000 homes throughout the world! Most of the people who belong to thee clubs are interesting, adventurous and fun-loving.
On your next vacation enjoy the personal contact of staying in someone else’s home. See the world on a shoestring and enjoy yourself. Here are some of the other benefits of a Travel Club
* Develop a pen-pal relationship
* Find people with similar hobbies
* Exchange home ( instead of staying with members)
* Drop-in relationships (if you prefer not to stay with members, you might just visit with them to find out what is going on in their area, etc..An initial contact when visiting a distant place will make for a more enjoyable vacation).

Become an “Outside Agent” for a travel agency, a tour guide or co-ordinator for group tours.
Go to a large travel agency and contract with them for a free trip (All expenses paid!) in exchange for you securing 20 to 30 people to go with you on a group tour.
How to secure others to travel with you? Primarily through your personal, social and business contacts. Think of a place that contacts might like to visit. You can get a special discount group rate for them. They will save on their trip and you will travel for free.
Still again,it is possible to appoint yourself as President of your non-profit organization and have the organization supply you with a free vehicle will all expenses paid. If your organization is a church related corporation, you could tour Europe for free, to visit cathedrals, as an example. A church can raise money by “selling” charters, degress and other cheap papers for hundreds of dollars.
