Founded in May of 2017 and based in Angers, France, Trip & Karam is a trusted hospitality community for locals and travelers to meet, host and be hosted for free around the world.
This project adresses the Muslim community primarily but remains open to everyone
Indeed, the prophet Muhammad (pbuh) has invited us to show generosity, hospitality and kindness.
Our ambition is to gather, reunite and facilitate the connection between hosts and travelers around the world in a spirit of fraternity and friendliness. That according to their beliefs and practices.
This project also aims to break stereotypes and prejudices inside and outside the umma, and to participate in the fight against "phobias" and discriminations.
For this purpose, we have set up some security mechanisms so that everyone can feel protected and secure.
The Karam team is an enterprising, dynamic, complementary and multi-talented team. We share a common project : to put these skills at the service of everyone to facilitate mutual support and welcoming of travelers.

The Karam Team is also the people who helped and supported us during the development of the project and still do: our family, friends, generous donators and active members of the Trip & Karam community.
Trip & Karam is a platform of hospitality respecting the Muslim ethic. Hence, our values are based on that. Morality is an integral part of the everyday life of the Muslim and aims to improve the greatness of soul.
If Hospitality exists since several milliners, Islam attributes a particular place to it.
Indeed, it is essential to take care of our guests and make them feel welcome. Moreover, guests have to respect their hosts and help them in the different tasks of daily life if needed.
Abu Shuraih Khuwailid Ibn ‘Amr Al-Khuza’ i (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (pbuh) said: « He who believes in Allah and the Last Day; should accommodate his guest according to his right. » He was asked « What is his right, O Messenger of Allah? » He (pbuh) replied: « It is (to accommodate him) for a day and a night, and hospitality extends for three days, and what is beyond that is charity. » (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)
Share your life, experiences, your travels, your home , your candies but also your knowledge and your kindness. We believe that if everyone show some generosity toward the others, the world will be a place much more different.
Respect the differences of everyone as well as those of your host, and his house. Try to be helpful in the places where you go in order to build a community even more supportive. Wherever you go, leave by bringing a smile to your host's face.
Meet people without prejudices, open yourself and learn even more than you would have imagined. Travelling means discovering other landscapes, other flavors but also other cultures and ways of living. Get out of your comfort zone. This is what will make the wealth of your travels.
You have a second home and you are welcome everywhere you go. Participate to the positive and vibrant atmosphere of the community and to the security of members by reporting us some possible bad behaviors.
Live unforgettable experiences and travel in another way by getting into the local culture. Be yourself and make friends all over the world.
Opening up to the others firstly means opening up to oneself, challenging oneself and learning to listen but also to teach and to grow up. But above all, learn to be patient and build a better World all together.
Our aim is to share our desire to learn constantly new things about different cultures, beliefs, traditions than ours. We think that travel has to make one curious and is is a real and deep lesson and experience.
We commit ourselves to donate 10% of our benefits to charity.
