What are Vouches?


Long-time Couchsurfers are familiar with a feature called the “vouch,” a feature members used to indicate trust and connection to each other on profiles.


Members can no longer Vouch for each other, but if you have received a Vouch in the old system, you will see a Vouch badge in the "old school badges" section of your profile.

We removed vouching as over the years it started to be used in different ways in different parts of the world, and its distinction from references became increasingly unclear. We’re now focusing on references as a way to share information about trust and connection on Couchsurfing.
