   What is European couch surfing and what are the benefits?

    • Enjoy the hospitality and the attractions of the country your host is located in.
    • Couch surfers can reduce their accommodation costs by staying in a residential setting and not a commercial locale.
    • Hosts may welcome more than one surfer allowing small group settings with people of similar interests.
    • Surfers have the opportunity understand the value hosting and could become a host themselves and vice versa.

Couch surfing is non-commercial agreement that takes place between two parties - the host who provides cost free accommodation, which is short term, and the couch surfer who is the guest of the host. Hosts are not limited to just providing a couch (some may not even provide that) but hosts generally make their homes available to couchsurfers, with varying accessibility, from just a floor to their whole home.
