Room Swap is a pioneering company founded by Iain Fenwick and Patty Harrison, both have an extensive background in the hospitality industry.

Whilst working on a similar project, they soon recognised there were owners of hotel rooms, b&b’s and guest houses crying out for a more professional way to get extra value from their rooms, and that is exactly what Room Swap provides.

Whilst it is very seldom opportunities arise for breaks or holidays, Room Swap offers a solution. To be able to make those last minute arrangements or indeed plan a family holiday with such little fuss is a new sense of freedom members are finally able to enjoy.

What is most important to the ethos of Room Swap is the ability to meet our clients’ needs. Room Swap has a network of staff stretching across the globe, with representatives as far as Canada, USA, India, Australia and South Africa as well as all across Europe.

It is vital to us to provide a service you can use and to help you use it.
