Among the myriad of classic holiday flicks, The Holiday will always be on our list of must-watch films. It has romance, snow, cozy sweaters, and best of all, last-minute travel. If you ever dreamed of simply swapping homes with someone across the globe for a quick (or extended) getaway, you'll be happy to know that a travel swap company inspired by The Holiday now exists (Jude Law not included).
It's called Love Home Swap and it works pretty much exactly the way the fictitious travel swap service worked in the film. Pay a low monthly membership fee, use filters to find a home in your desired destination, share a description and images of your own home, and start messaging people you'd like to swap with. Once you've found a match, you can settle all the details securely through the site and prepare for a one-of-a-kind vacation. With members across the U.S. and internationally, you're just clicks away from a magical holiday of your own.
