Ever wanted to take a spontaneous weekend trip, but couldn’t find an affordable option on a short notice? Enter: Swiftstay, a concierge home exchange club launching in Chattanooga where guests only pay cleaning costs to spend a weekend away.

How does it work?

  • Swiftstay is based off of a credit system, and every member starts with three credits (one credit = one night).
  • Every home is one credit per night no matter how big or small.
  • You can travel for three nights before having to list your home, and you receive more credits once your home is listed.
  • Members get .2 credits per night for listing and one credit per night a user books their home.

The membership is $300 a year, but Swiftstay is waiving the first-year membership fee for folks who apply + get accepted in the month of July, as part of its founding memberships. This means you get to travel for the weekend for the price of the cleaning fee, which ranges from $99-$150 per booking.
