Dear Traveler,

"The Spirit of Travel is Warm Hospitality."  Since our inception in 1992, this has been the motto of the Affordable Travel Club.  The Club is compiled of like-minded people who sincerely enjoy meeting other people, who enjoy sharing their homes, area, and travel experiences, and who are interested in economical travel.  When we travel, we host each other in our homes paying only a small gratuity to cover the host's costs.  In this way, there is no obligation to that host for a reciprocal visit. 

The Club has over 2000 wonderful member households in 48 states and 50 countries.  The range of members' homes is quite broad--everything from a condominium in Seattle with a "minuscule" guest bedroom to a beachfront home in Florida to a private guest apartment in Feldkirch, Austria. 

Host members are not expected to host more than three times a year.  The number of times per year a host member has guests, however, is entirely at the host's discretion and convenience.

Our Online Directory is updated daily, and includes the ATC Bulletin Board, newsletters, house and pet-sitting, and home exchange information. It also has an "Other Affordable Lodging" section, with economical hotels, B&B rentals, and other affordable accommodations recommended by our members.  The rates are reasonable but higher than the Affordable Travel Club gratuity.

There is an optional, printed directory available which is printed each December for the upcoming year.

Join our growing family of travelers today.  We look forward to welcoming you into the Affordable Travel Club!
