According to research conducted by Knok, location is the number one factor that determines how travelers plan their vacations, and today Knok has launched the best map implementation in the home exchange industry to solve this concern. This website offers tools that allow users to search by map and distance, locate homes on a visual map, and even search for homes in a specific neighborhood, narrowing the search up to the street level.
Travelers worldwide have become very demanding in selecting the location of their vacations, with 69% of them specifying their preferred destinations 6 months ahead. There is an increasing demand amongst travelers who know exactly the village, beach, or neighborhood they want to stay in, as opposed to just visiting any general tourist location. Knok is the only home swap platform that offers a search system that can help travelers find a home exchange exactly where they wish to travel.
Knok offers a new tool that is the search by map. This allows users to search from a specific point within a map, defining the radius distance where they are interested in finding a home.
On top of that, Knok also showcases the houses available for home exchange displayed on the map in every search result page. For example, if they would like to go to West Village in New York or experiment the local lifestyle of Saint Germain in Paris, the map will display the location of the different homes available for a home swap around that specific point.
Finally, Knok includes a reverse search where members can search for homes exclusively interested in coming to their city, region or country. This tool is one of the most appreciated by users as it makes it easier for them to agree on home exchanges knowing that a family is already interested in their city (all of these 3 tools are only available for members).
Knok believes that a better map implementation is the kind of solution that not only helps members find their home swaps but also moves the home exchange sector forward. By providing users with the best tools, Knok is driving the home exchange industry to focus on the mayor need of the travelers: "stay at the best location."
