SERVAS International

SERVAS is a non-profit international, non-governmental organization founded in 1949. Based on understanding, tolerance and world peace it is an organization of volunteer hosts and travellers divided into nine areas around the world with each area having its own coordinator.

"It operates through a network of Servas hosts around the world who are interested in opening their doors to travellers, and, "on the other side of the coin", many open-minded travellers who want to get to know the heart of the countries they visit. "

How does Servas work?
"Through SERVAS, travellers have opportunities to meet hosts, their familes and friends and join in their everyday life. Where convenient, hosts may offer two nights' accommodation and invite travellers to share a meal."

"Names and addresses of hosts appear in annually produced lists which are made available to approved travellers. Servas hosts are just a cross-section of ordinary people."

So if you would like to meet people from other countries or travel in a different way off the the tour route check out what SERVAS has to offer.
