Good news for travellers ! Now on you can barter your way to a free hotel stay.
For the first time ever, global ‘Barter Week’ is all ready to take place from November 19 to 25. More than 450 properties in 60 countries have signed up for the initiative. With the new initiative, you can stay in one of these 450 properties for free in exchange for a service.
Barter Week’s organizers said that “During the third week in November, travellers can stay in B&Bs without putting their hands in their pockets if they are skilled in manual ,teaching or creative tasks, or arrive with something from home for their bed-and-breakfast hosts,”
Those travellers who are interested can select from the list of wishes that the owner has listed online and if there is no wish list then one can offer a barter of their own.
As a part of this initiative, a guesthouse in Florence is willing to offer a free stay instead of the usual cost USD 120 per night to a traveler who can help them in set up a social media campaign on Instagram.
The new initiative is a spinoff of Italy’s ‘Settimana del Baratto’, which is promoted by Bed-and-Breakfast.it which is successfully in its tenth edition.
