Collecting audience data is the first step to hosting a trip.


Collect enough responses and gather data on your community's top destinations, desired trip length, dates, budget and more.


Use your survey data to select the perfect itinerary, choose optional activities, add in optional workshops and pick your dates.


Raise awareness about your trip and let Travelers know when they can book. Then, watch the bookings roll in and confirm your trip!

The more responses you collect, the more likely you will be to confirm your trip. Get started using the tips below.

Take Advantage of Video Text Overlay

Video outperforms static content every time!

  • Get your face on cam with a clear call to action to get your followers engaged with what you're planning.
  • Use text overlay to get the message across even if a viewer is on mute. Use captions like:
    • “Help me design our next trip”
    • "Where do you want to travel in 2022?
    • “Come travel with me!”
