If you are looking for free accommodation anywhere in the world and also you want to find friends and travel partners then you have come to the right post. There are a few great platforms where you can find thousands of people from around the world who can offer you free accommodation for your stay in that city/country. You can also make a lot of friends around the world using these platforms. So let’s have a look at what I have for you today.
Couchsurfing the #1 Platform for Hosts/Travelers
Couchsurfing.com is the #1 platform for finding hosts and friends from around the world, you can just create an account there, and start searching for people who can host you free of charge, you can also find events in that place which you are willing to visit in the future or right now. You can even send messages and friend requests to people you like on that platform. I’ll also suggest you to verify your account by paying a little $20 yearly fee, so that more people will be able to accept you as a guest and you can also offer your hosting services. It simply means get and give. My profile link on that Couchsurfing is this one: https://www.couchsurfing.com/people/abdul-wali
I use the above platform myself, and have found many amazing people. One advice I can give you is that please upload few photos of yourself, and also complete your profile with relevant & accurate information so that people can easily host you and can be friends with you. 🙂
Hospitality Club – Find Free Accommodation
Hospitalityclub.org is another great platform to find hosts and friends around the world. You can just register yourself on this website and then start browsing the categories for finding people of your interest. Always add your profile data accurately and with a photo of yourself, so you can easily be accepted by the community.
Helpful Facebook Groups
Facebook groups are really great for travelers, I’ve been a member of several groups in the past months, and I can say it’s an amazing experience to post & discuss with people on Facebook groups. For example, I wanted to visit Bangkok – Thailand last year, and wanted to get some real information, I instantly searched on Facebook and found many groups related to expats in Bangkok, one was this group [Bangkok & Expats Forums] I joined this group instantly, within three hours I was accepted into the group, then I asked all of my questions via a post, and I got all of the answers within a few hours from real people on the group.
You can ask any question related to that city/country on the Facebook groups, you’ll get your answer from different people living in that city/country. The above was just one example, you can search for any city or country on Facebook and You’ll find relevant groups, the groups are very effective because people participate in discussions.
