While we hope this never happends of course it does. Since we only charge a modest reservation fee we hope to provide flexibility with you plans.

Do Xchange partners ever have a car available?

Yes. But that really depends on your partner and where you go. Some places it is best to use the local transportation and sometimes people do not have a local driver’s license.

How do we find an Xchange partner?

We look through our listings and email potential Xchange partners to you through email. After that it is up to you to contact your potential partner and see what works out.

We have already started planning our next Xchange.
