Host Frequently Asked Questions


How many followers do I need to run a trip?

There is no minimum number of social media followers required. We want to work with anyone that is passionate about travel and good with people.

Do I have to have previously visited a destination to take a trip somewhere?

Absolutely not. You can select a new destination to visit or return to somewhere you know and love.

Are all costs covered?

The costs covered for the Host are exactly the same as those of the travellers. This will typically (but not always) be accommodation, some meals, transport and experiences.

Do you provide Public Liability insurance for me as a host?

We do. You never know when the unexpected might occur and our Public Liability Insurance is designed to provide our Hosts with peace of mind. With that said, we strongly encourage you to review our policy (available upon request) to ensure it provides protection to your level of satisfaction. We also recommend taking out your own personal travel insurance for yourself and it is required that all guests have travel insurance.

Can I co-host with a friend/colleague?

Working with another Host is a great idea to help bring along more travellers as well as delivering a more personal experience for each of your guests.
