Company Summary

Knok offers a great way of travelling: home exchange. You stay at my place, I stay at yours. An old idea, it's still a niche that Knok is extending to a wider audience. You save in accomodation expenses, travel like a local not like a tourist, and stay at a larger, more comfortable place than a hotel. Our customers are families with kids, young couples and seniors, who pay a yearly fee for unlimited exchanges.
