If you've never hosted group trips before, you'll need to survey your audience to get started. A minimum of 100+ responses is required to begin planning. Survey responses need to be adults 18+ with budgets that align with where you want to go.
You can choose an advancement of your earnings to cover flights. The advancement will be paid as soon as your trip reaches confirmed. Hello credit card and travel points!
In some instances, you may be able to add or remove meals, activities and days. If you'd like to add, remove or replace an activity please indicate this on your trip request and the Operator will confirm if it's possible. Once the trip is launched we will be unable to make any adjustments.
All trips include a certified guide who speaks the language and is with you throughout the entire duration of your trip. Your guide will be introduced to the group chat prior to the trip start.
You don't need to be a destination expert, that’s what the local guide is for! Kick back, relax, and let your guide do the leading.
Yes! We offer amazing itineraries across the world that are open to both local Hosts and those from outside of the country.
Plus-ones are welcome. However, the more people you include on the trip, the higher the cost to operate because we have to factor in their free trip as well. Ultimately, it depends on what you’d like to achieve out of the experience and the price you feel confident selling your trip at.
It’s important to allow your audience enough time to make a purchasing decision which is why we plan 8+ months for international and 6+ months for domestic.
Most trips require a minimum of 8 bookings to reach confirmed. Successful trips typically reach confirmed within the first 3 months of launching.
You have until 90 days before the trip starts to hit the minimum number of Travelers needed for the trip to happen. If you do not reach the minimum, you'll have the option to reschedule or cancel your trip. Travelers will have the option to receive a full refund or credit.
All trips must collect the minimum number of bookings required to operate by 90 days prior to the trip start date.
If a trip does not confirm by 90 days before its start date, the trip will automatically be cancelled and all Travelers will receive a full refund.
You set your earnings by choosing the trip price.
We’ll pay you 50% of your earnings for each paid-in-full customer prior to the trip starting and the other 50% at trip completion. Earnings are calculated 30 days before the trip and first payment will be sent 5-10 business days following.
Refer a friend to host a trip and we'll kick back $500 once their trip gets confirmed to say thanks! To be eligible for the referral cash, the referred Host must not be in the process of working with us (meaning they have not started surveying or planning their trip with us).
Be sure to let us know as soon as you speak with them to confirm the referral is valid!
All meals included on the itinerary for Travelers are also included for you.
Accommodations vary depending on the destination and itinerary. You have the option to request preferred accommodation type when you submit the trip request. Please note accommodations are subject to change depending on group size and for various reasons outside of our control.
As we will be using shared transfers and spaces throughout our tour we recommend all travelers pack as lightly as possible. All travelers are allowed to bring one large piece of luggage (not exceeding 50lbs (23kg) in weight, with the dimensions (30” x 18” x 10”), one small carry-on (12”x11”x6), and a personal item.
