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.

How is it organised?

Dreaming alone is not enough. That's why we have founded BeVolunteer, a non-profit organisation registered in Rennes, France. Through BeVolunteer's official statutes, we provide a basis for democratic decision making, financial transparency and information security so that we can protect our members and manage the project BeWelcome effectively.

He picked up the by now almost traditional title of a BeWelcome meeting and calles it "Seek The Stoat - Seek The Bigoudène". Up to you non native speakers to find out what that means ;)
