Please remember your safety - as a host or surfer. Take a look at the safety tips pages for information.
HOW TO INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF FINDING A LAST MINUTE HOST :
PUT THE DATE IN THE SUBJECT LINE: This group is for Emergency Requests first however it is occasionally used for open request. This has been replaced now by the OPEN REQUEST Function, so all post here should be short notice - If it is a few weeks/months before you are in Shanghai, then DO NOT POST HERE.
YOUR PROFILE IS COMPLETE.
A "last minute host" will want to know as much about you as possible before agreeing to host you.
YOU TRIED COUCHSEARCH FIRST.
Your host will want to know that you've at least given the CouchSearch function a proper try before posting here. You may need to contact a large number of people before you get a 'yes'. Please ensure you try some "Maybe's" too!
YOURS IS A WELL-WRITTEN REQUEST.
