Congratulations on agreeing to trade your trip via Trips4Trade! We hope that each of you will be completely satisfied with your experience. To help make sure that happens, we want to ensure that you understand and agree to certain expectations that you each have of one another and that Trips4Trade  has of each of you. The following resource is intended to hold each Trade Partner accountable and help facilitate successful exchanges.

The points listed below conveniently highlight the Trade Partners’ obligations to each other. However, you must make sure to read the entire Member Trade Agreement before proceeding. If you have any questions, please submit them to

Trade Partners’ Obligations to each other:

  • Both trips must be completed within the time range agreed upon by the Trade Partners but no later than two years from the date of the trade. This is to ensure a mutually satisfactory and timely trade.
  • Both Trade Partners must use their best efforts to actively attempt to set firm dates for the trips.
  • Both Trade Partners must be responsive to reasonable inquiries from the other about setting trip dates, details regarding logistics for planning the trip, directions to the location of the trip, and other matters related to the execution of the agreed upon trade.
  • If one Trade Partner can no longer complete the trade after an agreement has been made, but before either Trade Partner goes on their trip, then the Trade Partner that cannot complete the trade must immediately notify the other Trade Partner and reimburse for any non-refundable expenses they have incurred related to the trip such as non-refundable transportation and lodging costs.
  • Both Trade Partners must truthfully and accurately describe their offering and have full rights to offer it to other individuals.
  • Each Trade Partner shall be responsible for their own compliance with all national, federal, state, and local laws and regulations applicable to the trip they provide and any activities associated with it.
  • Both Trade Partners must agree to pay the other for any property damage or personal injury they cause on the trip. Each Trade Partner shall indemnify, defend and hold the other Trade Partner harmless from and against any claim, demand, action, loss, cost, damage and expense (including reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses) arising out of or based upon any property damage, personal injury or death where the indemnifying Trade Partner is alleged to have caused or contributed to the damage, injury or death, except to the extent the alleged injuries, damages or death were caused by the negligence, wanton, or willful conduct by the indemnified Trade Partner.
  • Both Trade Partners agree that if one Trade Partner reasonably feels threatened or unsafe by the actions, conduct or behavior of the other Trade Partner, then the threatening party is subject to having their access to the T4T service revoked. The party who was threatened will therefore be released from the trade obligation.
