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.

As you can see, we've started a new donation campaign! This year, our donation goal is €1620!

In other good news: after a long procedure, Paypal acknowledged our non-profit status, which means our transaction fees are down to €0,25 + 1,4% (previously a higher basic fee and a higher percentage, dependent on the origin of the donation).
