Reverse Search: You can also choose to show only listings belonging to members who have your area in their Destinations Wishlist.

Exchange Filters: If you want to see only listings open for exchange, put a checkmark in the box next to “Open for exchange”. This will remove all offers not currently open for exchange from your search results.

Hotlist: You can also choose to show only the listings of members looking for a last minute exchange.

And you can sort the listings that you see by:

Most recent: These are the newest and freshest listings in our database and this is the default sort order. You can be sure that the listings you see first, no matter what your search criteria are the newest we have to offer.
Country: This is useful if you have not specified a country for your search.
Listing number: Especially good if you are looking for your own listing. You can place your search and sort by listing number to make it easier to find your listing in all the others.

Yes, you can save and name your search criteria for quick access to the latest listings! Read all about Saved Searches.

How to handle your messages


Intervac is known to have the most responsive members. It is important that you also do your part and reply to all messages.

Keep in mind that there are several ways to quickly reply to your messages.

Inbox

Your Intervac messages go to your Intervac Inbox. The Inbox actually stores all the messages exchanged with other members. It includes both the ones started by them and the ones started by you.

In this Inbox there are 35 unread messages

Exchange requests and conversation messages

When you receive an exchange request or a conversation message from another member, you also get a notification via e-mail. This notification goes to the primary e-mail address that you have on your account. It also goes to the secondary e-mail address if you have indicated one. Please note that you can indicate a secondary e-mail in the Emails and Logins section.

If the other member sent message as a conversation message the notification will simply show a summary card of the listing that is sending you this message and the message sent.

Conversation message

To reply to this message you either use the Reply function of your e-mail client or you click on the link provided to go into your Inbox and reply there.

If the message was sent as an exchange request, you can still reply using these two ways but the notification will have buttons that also allow you to reply.

Exchange request for a Portuguese member with Yes (“Sim”), Maybe (“Talvez”) and No (“Não”) buttons

The quick reply buttons correspond to the Yes / Maybe / No options and they are shown in the language of the person who is receiving the offer.

Clicking on the green Yes button will send a short message on your behalf. Below each button, you can see the text of that message. The same happens for the yellow Maybe button and the red No button.

You can see all these messages when you log in to your account and go to your Inbox.

Templates

If you prefer to send your own message but would like to use the same one multiple times, you can do so by using templates. A template is simply a model message that you can reuse. When you use a template you are able to change its text a little if you want.

Inside the Messages section you can find your Templates

On the right side, you can find the list of templates, with a link next to each one to allow you to delete that template if you no longer need it.

List of templates

Also on the right side, you will find the Create template button. Clicking on this button will allow you to create a new template you can use later when sending your messages. The name you choose for each template should make it easy for you to know which template it is.

YOUR STORY

Miguel, Margaret his wife, and we are all experienced exchangers. I know Intervac since 1988 and made nearly 40 swaps since…
As we are retired now, we make more exchanges than when we worked: we can travel all year round. We don’t live anymore in Paris but in Provence. In a big house + garden and pool.
Miguel and Margaret did not plan at all to come to France, I saw their preferences on their listing but dared contact them. I wanted to swim a little and chose to go to Mojacar, in Andalucia, which looked a nice destination. As he was an archeologist, I sent him infos on the archeologic sites of our region.
they wanted to spend at least 3 weeks in our home, we prefered a little less, but they suggested we could also go their main home, in Sevilla. We accepted their proposal, with enthousiasm
We welcomed them the day of their arrival, my husband has prepared a nice dinner. We spent the evening talking, it’s always nice to know better your exchangers than just leave keys to perfect strangers.
We left the following morning to drive to Spain (our house is divided in 2 independent flats)
As we faced a grey and rainy weather in their summer home in Mojacar, as we told them that on our way to Sevilla, we would visit Ronda, where Miguel was born, he was kind enough to call his brother who runs an hotel in that town. As they felt miserable for the rain, we were invited for free in the hotel in Ronda. How nice.
We met Miguel’s family in Ronda and also in Seville: on the day of our arrival, their eldest daughter welcomed us in the house, offered red wine to drink and jamon iberico.
On our side, we gave his daughter who was going the following day to Paris, some infos about nice bars and restaurants we knew. Their Seville home was perfect, in a nice and quiet burrough, in the center, but not too surrounded by tourists.
We kept in touch during our trip (they sent us news about our cat) and all of us were pleased to have known new friends : they’ve decided to learn french !!

Live chat support


On January 17, 2018, we launched a new support system. This Live chat option was added to provide a better service for all our members and those who simply have questions about home exchange.

When no support agent is available, the system switches to offline mode. This means you can leave messages using a form and contact us even after office hours. We will do our best to reply promptly.

You can also reach to our support team by writing an e-mail to support@intervac.com. And you can, of course, also contact your National Representative like you always did!
