Traveling to a foreign country provides an opportunity to feel like an explorer; you get to charter unknown territory, eat exotic foods and immerse yourself in a different culture. Tripping, a global community of travelers, understands this feeling better than anyone and is intent on giving explorers an authentic and unforgettable vacation. Tripping facilitates amazing traveling experiences by providing a network of fellow Trippers who can rent out their homes, enjoy free homestays or meet up for cultural exchanges.
The free website lists top vacation and short-term rental sites with over 850,000 local homes in 18,000 cities. Homeowners can make some dough on the side to fund their next overseas adventure, and prospective renters can get a unique home away from home experience.  
The hospitality network believes in homestays and cultural exchanges, giving locals the opportunity to host international visitors in their home or simply meet up for a cup of coffee and make a new friend. If the stranger danger bell is ringing off in your head, know that the Tripping system is well vetted and monitored with anonymous reviews, in addition to a 24/7 helpline for travelers out on the road. So, where are you headed next? [Source: Tripping]
