With 'Home Exchange 50 Plus', baby boomers around the world have the chance to take advantage of a resource that they have in spades: time. The site connects boomers from different areas with one another and lets them exchange houses for set periods of time, allowing those over 50 to see new places while living like locals.

As compared to younger travelers, boomers typically have relatively flexible schedules. They're often retired, and their kids have usually moved out of the house, so it's easy for them to take time away from home. Rather than leaving that home empty, though, Home Exchange 50 Plus lets boomers put their homes to good use. Through the website, users can posts their own homes along with destinations that they'd like to visit. Open users can then exchange homes for whatever amount of time they agree upon; since boomers' time tends to be flexible, the site takes advantage of that benefit.
