The idea

The concept

Imagine arriving in a city like Paris or Mumbai and somebody is 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.

"Testing is like searching for truffles", a friend of mine once described it: You walk in a beautiful surrounding and then suddenly stumble upon something that is irritating.

We are all looking forward to our new website. The redesign is going on and advancing ... but nothing can be put online without proper testing beforehand. And the more people test it, the more bugs or inconsistencies will be noticed.
