Authentic encounters, unique adventures
Hello! We are Welcome & Meet
Welcome & Meet is an emerging platform that securely connects local hosts and travelers from across the world.
Welcome & Meet offers an unprecedented approach to travel:
Discover what it’s like to live like a local! This immersive experience takes you on an authentic journey as you spend a few hours discovering a new place & culture.
Local hosts are carefully selected by the Welcome & Meet team and open their doors to travelers for a few hours to share their lifestyles.
Curious travelers then connect with our local hosts to learn about their daily lives and to live an invaluable local travel experience.
Our passionate and dedicated team connects local hosts and travelers to cultivate rich and unforgettable connections.
How does it work?
The Welcome & Meet team then connects local hosts with travelers to proceed with booking. We don’t use algorithms, instead you get a real human experience throughout every step of the process.
Travelers browse our platform and select a location, the resident and the date they wish to visit.
Local hosts create their own profile on the platform to offer unique experiences they want to share (brunch, dinner, gardening, a games night…).

Once upon a time…
Welcome & Meet was born from the wandering minds of two travelers, Marie and Nelly, passionate about making new connects and discoveries. We believe that facilitating an opportunity for experience between a local host and a traveler is mutually beneficial to everyone.
