The idea

The concept

Imagine arriving in a city like Paris or Mumbai and, instead of trying to find a taxi, there is somebody already waiting for you. Imagine that instead of going to eat at the place recommended by the guidebook, someone shows you their favourite restaurant. Imagine the experience staying as a personal guest of your new friend rather than sleeping in an impersonal hotel room. BeWelcome makes it possible.

Hi all,

As preparation for the next software release some work has to be done on the server side which might impede using the site for around an hour on Tuesday, 7th of October starting at 10 pm CET.

If everything works as planned the site should be usuable during that time will access might be slower as usual.

Cheers,
shevek

 PS: 10pm CET means 10am in Honolulu, 4pm in New York, 1:30 am on Wednesday, 8th in Mumbai, and 4am in Hongkong.
