Verification

Verification: become a trustworthy member

What is the verification?

If you are a new member or you enjoy plenty of home exchanges, you should consider becoming a verified member!

It ́s an optional service that GuesttoGuest offers to its members.

For the verification, our team will check if your home address and your personal identity are real, in order to make you a more trustworthy member.

For example: I want to go to the other part of the world and the plane tickets are expensive and I am not sure about my host. If I contact verified members I am sure that the guest and the house have been checked by the GuesttoGuest team and that they have genuine intentions as hosts.

Why become a verified member?

The service enables you to show other members that you are a real person, whose ID has been checked and approved by the GuesttoGuest team and that also your house is real.

Our vision is a social network with millions of trustworthy members who can exchange their homes for as free as possible. Become a verified member, contribute to the creation of this social network, and help us offer you a quality service that makes your dream vacation come true!

Benefits of becoming a verified member

  • You will have the green check mark on your profile to allow other members to recognize you as a verified member.
  • You earn 500 GuestPoints.
  • Your home will be at the top of search results. Also, you have the option to request to be contacted only by other verified members.

For example: I have a house in Rome but there are a lot of members with a house in Rome. My house appears on the last page of the search results so I have problems to organize an exchange. Being a verified member I will be at the top in the searches.

Process

1. Payment of 25 euros, only once*, and you are verified member for life!

2. Send to verification@guesttoguest.com

  • A document of identity (a scan or a picture of your ID OR PASSPORT)
