See Italy for cheap during Barter Week
Want to stay at a villa in Tuscany? Take a beach vacation in Sardinia? See Juliet's balcony in Verona? Now, it's easier than ever, no matter your budget.
From Nov. 14 to 20, 2016, hundreds of bed & breakfasts in Italy will take part in Barter Week. During this time, owners of these small businesses will offer free lodging to guests in exchange for needed goods and services. Requests range from the expertise of a social media marketer to small plumbing jobs, fresh-baked muffins or a case of German wine.
To take advantage of this great travel opportunity, head to the official website. Once there, you can do one of the following:
- Browse available properties and contact the owner with your bartering offer.
- Review current requests from property owners to find one that fits your skills and availability.
- Propose your offer and wait to see if a property owner is interested in the trade.
Even more good news — many of these B&Bs take part in the barter system year round.
