How We Work

10 years ago, Virgin Airlines' Voyeur magazine said, "Trade to Travel (TTT) is a trend that will change the way people travel, it is an up-market 'you wish' kind of experience. Swaps with TTT are on everyone's wish list."

For 30 years, we've arranged fabulous exchanges and exceptional vacation rentals around the globe for owners of luxury properties and celebrities like Tommy Lee Jones and Robert Downey Jr.  Now we're delighted to make it possible for everyone everywhere to trade everything using points or cash.



Our secure messaging application puts you directly in touch with your fellow members, business owners and entrepreneurs, providers of all sorts of products and services.  We charge no fee or commission.

Direct and Indirect Trades:  Members may swap with each other directly (for example, trade apples for oranges) or use points or cash, or a combination of points and cash.  Using our messaging system, you can ask questions, make offers and purchases, and arrange deals amongst yourselves.



Points = Dollars.  Each point represents one dollar of barter value.  Points never expire.

The only time you pay us anything is if you would like to purchase points to increase your trade account balance.  When you purchase points, we double your money by giving you double points.  For example, the cost to purchase 2000 points would be $1000.  

In other words, you save 50% when using purchased points to buy goods and services!




FreeTrades is a vetted Exchange Club.  Members agree to deal honestly and do nothing illegal using our website or our name.  If a member does anything dishonest or illegal using our site, their membership will be terminated and their points will all be forfeited.  This helps assure members that you are safe when using our exchange.

Referral Rewards: Tell family and friends about us to receive 100 points for each referral who registers.

What products, properties, and services would you like to advertise for free?  What would you like to buy, sell, rent or swap?  With FreeTrades, the world is your marketplace.

We wish you happy trading!
