We founded WeSwap to put power back in the hands of ordinary travellers like you and us. Nobody should be worrying about poor exchange rates when there’s a fantastic pizza menu to deliberate over.
So to celebrate, we’re delivering People-Powered Surprises to WeSwappers all around the world! This map shows where we've been so far - click on each WeSwap marker tag to find out where we've been and where we might be heading 😉

Back in May, we emailed out asking you guys what your summer holiday plans were. Not because we were being nosey, but because we wanted to plan some super-cool surprises. We're covering all of it on social media but here are some of the best bits.
Super Swapper Britta surprises Robin in San Francisco
Delivering a killer surprise in the FinTech capital of the world was high on our 'Really, Really Want To Do That' list but it was always going to be tough to pull off. But friend of WeSwap Britta came up trumps and surprised WeSwapper Robin on his WestCoast adventure! Britta took along a bottle of delicious Napa Valley wine, a big ol' list of local tips and insights (blog post coming soon) aaaaaand, dinner on us! Whoop.
Super Swapper Jess meeting Francis in Barcelona...
— Jessica Bowler (@HolaYessica) July 13, 2016
Jess is California-born and UK-raised but now calls Barcelona home! Here she is delivering a People Powered Surprise to WeSwapper Francis who has spent the last few weeks backpacking. We know what it's like living on a backpacker's' budget so it was great that Jess could deliver some local tips, some of which can be found on her blog!
WeSwapper Sunil was in for a surprise last Saturday...
— Claire (@iwanderandroam) July 9, 2016
Like Jess, Claire is a British girl living in one of Europe's coolest cities. She is a self-proclaimed foodie and her blog points out a load of Amsterdam's hidden gems. Sunil was obviously thrilled to have that injection of local knowledge and we were only to happy to connect the two!
