Community Guidelines

At TrovaTrip, everything we do is designed to enhance lives through meaningful connection, learning and exploration. We’re constantly working to make travel safer and more accessible, and as members of the TrovaTrip community, we need your help to create a safe and respectful environment.

We encourage an open dialogue and strive for transparency. We will not tolerate bullying, harassment, discrimination or intimidation by any member. If we determine that any content shared by a community member, including reviews, has been created in bad faith or with the intent to cause harm to another community member, TrovaTrip reserves the right to remove such content immediately.

We expect that all community members will follow our community guidelines so that together, we can create an environment that feels safe for everyone. This means adhering to these guidelines while on the TrovaTrip platform, social media, traveling with us or anytime you’re interacting with other community members, Hosts or Travelers. The world needs more kindness. So let it start with you.

 

Bringing people together through travel and exploration.

 

Let’s cover the basics:

  • Be respectful. Whether you’re using our online platform, scrolling on social media, or on a trip, we expect that you will treat others the way you want to be treated.
  • Be kind. Lead with empathy and goodwill toward others.
  • Be aware. Be intentional with your words and actions. Strive to build and uplift, not tear down.
  • Be responsible. Take accountability for your actions.
  • Be inclusive. Come as you are and allow others to do the same.

Here’s what we absolutely will not tolerate:

  • Harassing or bullying:
    • No harassment or bullying of any kind. This includes written or verbal harassment, hate speech, violence, sexual harassment, negative behaviors toward others based on their race, ethnicity, immigration status, religion, caste, body size or appearance, gender (please share your pronouns if you wish), sexual orientation, disability, or disease.
    • No malicious content, unverifiable or irrelevant reviews, or content that is inappropriately biased, or information that is not helpful or could harm the mental, physical and financial health and wellbeing of another person. Such content is subject to removal by TrovaTrip in its discretion.
    • No content that is disrespectful toward another community member.
  • Discrimination:

    • No resharing of personal or intimate stories shared by a community member or Traveler that were shared in good-faith or in confidence on tour.
    • Please respect others, including TrovaTrip community members and local residents when capturing content.

Do not share content that contains the location, address, phone number, or any other personal information or personally identifiable information of any other person or community member.

    • No violent or overtly aggressive behavior directed towards another person, no matter how such behavior is conveyed.
    • No guns or weapons are allowed on any trip.
    • No vulgar language with malicious intent.
