  • What about Insurance?
    Your homeowner's insurance will typically provide coverage when hosting guests, as distinguished from renting for payment. To ensure this, please consult with your insurance agent and acquaint yourself with your local laws. We've evaluated the provisions of typical insurance plans, and in most instances, using your own insurance proves to be more cost-effective. As we continue to enhance our platform and grow, we may revisit this strategy. At 2Xcape we prioritize safety and security. Our team is available to answer any questions you may have. For those requiring extra assurance, procuring additional insurance coverage is an option. Proper Insurance Company is one that we have found to be a reliable choice.

    We acknowledge that circumstances can arise, necessitating the cancellation of an exchange.

If the reciprocal Xcaper incurs hotel or similar accommodation expenses due to your cancellation, those costs will be deducted from your deposit. For exchanges booked 30 days or less from the exchange date, cancellations must be made 72 hours prior to the exchange date to avoid penalties. Please note: 2Xcape strongly advises members to opt for refundable modes of transportation, such as airline tickets, as we cannot reimburse transportation costs nor deduct from the security deposit to cover these expenses.
