I’m pleased to announce the very first competition here on the blog, and it’s a really cool concept to get involved with. Nightswapping is a modern and über-convenient way to see the world, allowing you to stay in other people’s houses and be placed right in the heart of the city you want to explore. That’s why I’ve teamed up with Cosmopolit Home to offer one lucky winner the chance to bag seven nights’ free accommodation in the destination of their choice from the company’s website.
“We have a lot of travellers who go to Barcelona, Rome and Amsterdam, as the capitals and big cities are very popular,” says Sarah Leyman, who works for the company. “Equally we also have a lot of accommodation in France, including Lyon, which is a very beautiful place to visit. But the nice thing about our website is that we also have houses and guestrooms in cities that are less touristic and might surprise you, such as those in Belgium.” So you could soon be hanging out in a trendy loft apartment in Antwerp or a chic little place in Paris – the choice is yours.
What’s more, not only is the main prize up for grabs, but all entrants will be able to get their hands on a special code to receive three free nights’ accommodation in the city of their choice when they sign up their own property to the nightswapping scheme. Sounds tempting? Read on to find out more…
The competition runs from 28/01/2014 to 12/02/2014 and entering is really simple – what we want to know is where you’d most love to travel with Cosmopolit Home, so just leave a comment on this blog post and tell us where you’d pick and why.
Don’t forget to also leave your name and Twitter handle so we can get in touch if you win. After you’ve left your comment, please make sure you’re following both Cosmopolit Home and The Travelling Calavera on Facebook or Twitter. Then you’re done!

After you’ve entered, remember that you’re entitled to claim your three free nights of accommodation when you use the code pictured further up the page, so even if you don’t win the main prize you can still get into the trend of nightswapping. Good luck, and stay tuned for the winner to be revealed on Twitter on 14/02/2014! For full Ts&Cs, see below.
