What sort of StayDeals can I get?

There are all sorts of StayDeals out there! If you can imagine it, I’m sure there is someone out there who is willing to share their home or StaySpace in exchange for your skills & talents.
Exchanges all depend on what skills & talents you have to share; the more valuable your skill or talent, the more you can ask for in exchange. For example:

  • An experienced chiropractor from London who wants to escape the winter and head to the Caribbean for a month might offer to share a couple of healing sessions a week in exchange for an ensuite bedroom in a beach house with spectacular sea views. An extra healing session might earn a scuba diving lesson.
  • A permaculture gardener from New Zealand who wants to spend the European summer travelling round Europe could negotiate five mornings a week of gardening in exchange for a comfortable bedroom and all meals.
  • A web designer from India visiting New York could expect to work twenty-five flexible hours a week in exchange for a self-contained flat and some pocket money towards travel and food.
  • A farrier from Argentina visiting the Australian outback might ask for a log cabin and all meals in exchange for looking after the hooves of ten mustering horses. Some pocket money for carrying out extra tasks on the cattle station could also be negotiated while making the StayDeal.
  • A young woman from England who sings and plays the guitar could teach English to her Host’s children in Bali five evenings a week in exchange for an ensuite bedroom in their Ubud home and all her meals. She might also offer to teach the guitar to her Host in ex-change for being shown the sites around town.

I don’t have professional skills… can I still be a StayLancer?

StayLance is not just about sharing your professional skills and experience. Do you have a unique talent that you can share? Some Hosts aren’t necessarily looking for skilled sharers but are more interested in learning a new talent or meeting interesting people from different walks of life. There are lots of other reasons a Host might be interested in offering you a StayDeal. Have a look at these example:

  1. You have a unique talent such as playing the guitar, belly dancing, natural horse-manship or cooking.
  2. You are willing to exchange your talent(s), either by teaching your Hosts how to be as talented as you, using your talent to entertain them or contributing positively to their home/lifestyle.
  3. You speak a language that your Host would love to learn and that you would be hap-py to teach them.
  4. You are willing to share something else of value, such as your stories, culture, cuisine, music, books and so on.
  5. You are the life of the party and someone that others love to be around; you just make people happy by being you - there are Hosts who are just looking for fun peo-ple to bring joy to their lives!
