INTERVAC began in Europe in the early 1950s with a group of teachers who had ample vacation time and were seeking cost-effective ways to travel internationally. After a few exchanges, they realized that living in each other's homes was fantastic for cultivating international friendships. Our concept has continued to grow since then, initially through word of mouth from satisfied members. Currently, INTERVAC offers its services worldwide to around 12,000 members, facilitating home exchanges for all types of families.
