Kindred is a startup offering a members-only network for home swapping, enabling travelers to stay in real homes rather than hotels, for a fraction of the cost. Members can book homes without paying nightly fees, covering only cleaning and a small service charge per trip. Renters and homeowners alike can participate, with the requirement that all members must be verified and reciprocate by hosting their own homes. Before booking, new members can use credits to arrange stays and earn more by hosting. The platform emphasizes community, affordability, and trust, with no financial exchange between guests and hosts during stays.
