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.

Dear members, since about one week we encounter some issues with some Hotmail accounts. All messages and notifications sent to these e-mail addresses are blocked by Hotmail. Probably their system misinterprets those messages as spam.

If you signed up on BeWelcome using a Hotmail account, please check your spam folder from time to time and tell Hotmail our messages are no spam. We recommend all members to regularly check your spam-folder to see if all our messages find their ways to your inbox.
