About us Stays@FriendsWhat is Stays@Friends?
Travel more, pay less.
That's the idea at Staysatfriends.com. It's a new network that connects you to your friends and their friends, and lets you see who's got accommodation available, where and when.
Drop them a line, sort out the details, and off you go - you avoid paying hotel bills, you don't need to eat out for every meal and you can save plenty of money.
And that means you can travel more often.
It's simple and reliable. Your network consists of your friends and their friends - no further than that. If you add ten friends, and they each add ten friends, that's 100 possible destinations straight away.

What does it cost to join?
Stays@Friends has no cost, its use is completely free.
What does it cost to stay?
That's between you and your contacts.
Some people might just be happy to have someone looking after their place while they're away - it reduces the chance of burglary or makes sure the cat gets fed.
Other people might ask for some money to cover electricity and other bills. Some others might ask you to pay a bit more.
It's completely between you and them to come to a mutually acceptable arrangement. We don't dictate any kind of rates - we're just here to make the connection.
What friends should I add?
Our advice would be to pick people you trust, and choose those who live in places you might want to travel to. The broader the network, the better it will be for everyone.
By all means, invite local friends - they'll have friends elsewhere you'll then connect with - but don't just limit it to the people you see every day!
It's better to add just a handful of people you trust than import the entire contents of your address book. Remember, you'll probably have to vouch for these people at some point!
How do I know someone is legit?
Anyone who contacts you is always going to be a friend or a friend of a friend - you'll either know them, or you'll have a friend in common you can contact to check them out.
What about security?
We take your security seriously and we don't ask you to provide any information that could identify you or your property specifically.
