Wyndham's RCI acquires Love Home Swap, terms not disclosed
RCI, part of the Wyndham Worldwide family of brands, has acquired London-based Love Home Swap, one of the world's largest home exchange programs. Through the acquisition, RCI adds a company that complements its existing business, broadens its appeal to a new base of holidaymakers and strengthens its position as a leader within the global alternative holiday accommodation sector. Love Home Swap, which has established a strong, loyal consumer base, will continue to run as an independent brand and be marketed separately from RCI. However, the similarities among these exchange-oriented businesses will allow for greater collaboration between the companies to foster growth and provide future travel benefits to their respective members.
