Get FREE Accommodation Around the World with Trampolinn!

Whenever I travel or go on a trip, I always try to get free accommodations since we all know how costly it could be to pay for these things. I do get complimentary stays from time to time because of partnerships that I acquire through blogging; but in times that I couldn’t be bothered reviewing hotels, resorts or whatnot, I look for opportunities where I could acquire a free stay without using my travel blog as a ‘leverage’. (Thereby placing myself in the shoes of any typical traveler out there).

Out of all the popular options available on the web that I have used and tried, I have come to love Trampolinn — an awesome new platform that I recently discovered. After days of scrutinizing how the system works, I can’t help but recommend it!!
.

What is Trampolinn?

Free Accommodation

Trampolinn is a non-profit start-up in France that aims to revolutionize house exchanges or home swaps around the world. By simply using the site’s points as ‘virtual money’, you will be able to stay in a member’s property whenever you want!

It will not only help you save money from your travel fund, but it will also link you to people from all over the world, letting you discover a country like a local or with a local.

» Why I Love Trampolinn

It’s FREE using virtual points! You will NEVER have to pay in cash since you can stay in an accommodation (couch, room, house, etc.) by just using your Trampolinn points that act as virtual money.

  • How to get points? Easy. Just by signing up, you will already get 250 points as a start. And when you add your own property as a listing, you will be awarded free 1,000 points! (You can set this to public or private). You will also be given 100 points for every successful invite or friend referrals that you make (as long as they complete their profile and listing), and then in the future, you will earn points by hosting members in your home and these points that you will gain will be equivalent to the points valuation that your listing is given with. (If you ever want to get more points, you can buy them too by packs or through a plan that’s very cheap like 3€ a month, but I don’t think there would ever be a need for that as long you host other members in your home from time to time).
  • Smart points valuation. Rest assured, Trampolinn has a smart algorithm that calculates the value of every listing so there is a sense of fairness in everything!

It’s a home exchange WITHOUT mutual and fixed exchanges. What does this mean? Unlike the typical home exchanges or home swaps that requires you to swap houses with another person at the same time and period, Trampolinn rather gives you more flexibility on this because the owner of the house that you need to stay in does NOT have to stay in your house just so you can stay in theirs. (So you don’t also need to have an active listing just to stay in someone else’s ‘home’). In a way, this is simply like a renting platform but without the involvement of money. In fact…

It’s like AirBnB BUT better! Trampolinn has a wide variety of prime and unique spaces from all over the world that members can choose from, but unlike AirBnB, you don’t have to pay at all because Trampolinn is FREE.
AirBnB vs TrampolinnIt’s secure and legal. Trampolinn is also like CouchSurfing but with more accommodation options that are more transparent and focused. Truth be told, it is a secure and trusted way for travel and ‘renting’. Why?

  • Trampolinn has strict safety features that monitors the quality and compliance of profiles and published listings. There are multiple identity checks for every member and each listing and profile have options for leaving comments, reviews, and ratings in order to put more trust and confidence in the community.
  • Trampolinn has a concept that is a perfectly legal practice. It is a housing exchange that is not viewed as a financial transaction because it is considered as a simple stay with friends or acquaintances; so, it is fully covered by your property and liability insurance. Just simply inform your insurer or insurance company that you have guests and you will be covered in any case of damage.

How to Start?

  1. Sign up to Trampolinn using either your Gmail, Facebook or email account. Do all the necessary steps to complete and verify your profile and you will earn free 250 points. Afterwards, add your listing (house, apartment, room, or couch) and then you will get additional 1,000 points to use for booking.
    NOTE: Be assured that your address will never be visible to the public. It will only be visible to approved members that you would like to host in your property.

  2. Before you embark on your trip, go and search for a free accommodation on Trampolinn and you can do this in two ways:
    • By Search Bar – simply type the location in the search bar. You can also click on ‘More Options‘ which will show you accommodations in specialized categories like Friend’s Places, Available Places, All Cities, Collections, and the World Map.
      Home Exchange
    • By Projects – By accessing the tab in your account that’s named ‘My Projects’ it will enable you to create and save travel plans. As based on your criteria (dream destinations, activities you want to do, travel dates, number of companions, preferred accommodation, etc.) the Trampolinn system will proceed to craft property suggestions that are specially tailored for you! It’s a very helpful way to organize your upcoming trip!
      Cheap Accommodation.
  3. Once you find the property listing that you like the most, you can now contact the host to ask if he/she is able to accommodate you. From this point onward, it is up to the two of you to work out the details: the period of your stay, the house rules, and more! More often than not, hosts would even gladly give you tips and recommendations while you’re in their city. Or if they will still be in the house during your stay, then it becomes even more awesome — you don’t only have a guide but you even have the opportunity to make a new foreigner friend!

All in all, with Trampolinn, it is absolutely easy to find a ‘new home’ anywhere in the globe, and it’s absolutely easy to share your home as well with like-minded individuals who love travel and networking!
