The first motivation to start Quouch was simply to create another homestay platform like Couchsurfing (CS) for queer people & women (FLINTA*). We, as a female and queer founders team, ended up on some strange person's (mostly cis-male) couch a million times when using CS and eventually got pretty fed up with this. But also, there is this initial layer of trust and understanding that you as a member of the LGBTQIA+ community feel when you meet another queer person. It is really hard to find that by coincidence. Building this travel platform where queer hosts and travellers can meet each other is one way to faciliate this - but then we thought, can’t we make it even easier? We decided to develop a matching algorithm, so that you really meet the people you click with.
So how do we make sure you do connect and have a really good time together?
We match hosts and travellers based on humour, preferences and personality. We developed a research-backed humour test to bring you together with someone who cracks up laughing about the same things you do.
Take the test and find out what humour type you are.
