You consider joining ConnectingFriends. Great to see that you too are a hospitable traveler and that you want to make this world a little bit more beautiful. Each member contributes €15/quarter (€5/month) to the ConnectingFriends projects fund.
You do not pay for the membership itself. You also save each other the costs of meals and overnight stays when you are on the road, for recreational or business purposes.
Just a few steps to go
It takes just a few steps to present yourself to the other members of the platform:
- click on the green blue button SUBSCRIBE at the top of this page
- enter your first and last name
- choose a username
- enter your e-mail address
- choose and confirm your password
- meet your first quarterly contribution for the projects
- create your profile and location
As a member you do not pay a membership fee, but you donate € 5/month in the 'piggy bank' for projects with a social goal. Upon registration, you immediately pay the first quarterly donation of € 15 (for three months). Read more about the projects ...
You will soon be a hospitable traveler, just like the other members. You are interested in genuine meetings with others and in true hospitality. For this reason, members do not pay each other for meals and overnight stays. That can easily amount to saving hundreds of euros per year.
Membership is individual
Would your partner or housemate also want to become a member at the same location? He or she then also registers, meets the quarterly contribution for the projects, and adds him- or herself to your location. The fact that you both donate is logical, because you also both enjoy the (financial) benefits when you eat or stay with other hospitable travelers.
What can you do as a member of ConnectingFriends?
At this platform, it's NOT about digital relationships. It's all about genuine meetings "at each other's home, in small groups, cosy at the table or at the porch". Read what others have to say...
What are your options, as a member?
- you look for other members at the map

- you send requests to others to meet at their place
- you propose a social project
- you make others aware of ConnectingFriends to grow the network
As a hospitable traveler you support beautiful projects and you have fascinating encounters with cost savings as a bonus. Meet someone once a year? Weekly? That is entirely up to you.
Does this appeal to you? Then don't hesitate any longer. Register as a hospitable traveler, and prepare for fascinating encounters with other hospitable travelers. It does not matter whether you are traveling for business or leisure. Each meeting can be a valuable extension of your network.
Complete your profile and location
After your first donation (15) you receive an e-mail with the confirmation of your payment and with further instructions to finish your profile and to create your location. Don't forget this last step, because other members won't be able to see you untill you've created your profile and location. Watch the instructions at the website after you've logged in. They'll show you how complete your profile is. And don't hesitate to contact us if something isn't entirely clear or if you run into problems.
