I hope you will find this post helpful if you are one of the people who have asked lately:
What Do Those Badges Mean?
Platinum members have made more than 11 exchanges. Some of them way more than 11 exchanges. We have platinum members with over 100 exchanges behind them. Some have been Intervac members for many, many years.
Lucky us to have so many precious gold members. They have all made between 6 and 10 exchanges. When you talk to them you’ll discover they are enthusiastic home exchangers and have plenty of great stories to tell.
Silver members have usually been swapping thier homes for a couple of years. They have experience (3 - 5 exchanges). They have made the kinds of friends and memories that happen with home exchange.
These members have a bit of experience now and know the ropes. With 1 or 2 exchanges they have some stories and probably still have some questions.
These members are brand new to home exchange and have never swapped their house before. We appreciate their trust in our members and encourage experienced members to help out by making offers to new members.
And Our Trial Members
And these are our trial members. They are brand new and are just having a look around. The trial member badges count down the number of days left on thier trial membership. These nice people are in the decision making process and are looking for feedback, they are testing the waters and hoping for interest…
If you are already a full member and you see a trial member’s listing that you think would be just the perfect house for your next vacation, be sure to contact them. Your welcoming offer may be exactly what they need to join Intervac and become part of our international community.
