What makes a good TripLeader?
Set the right expectations
Make sure you set the right expectations across all your TripMates. This way everyone has a clear understanding of what to expect when going on a trip with you.
Choose the right TripMates
Make sure that you and your TripMates have the same goals for the trip. The best thing you can do is arrange a (video) call and trust your gut feeling. You're the TripLeader and you decide who you want to take on the trip.
Build trust with your TripMates
Trust is everything. How can you travel with someone you will be with 24/7 if there's no trust? You are the TripLeader who is leading the group and your TripMates should be able to rely and put their trust in you.
Be accurate and responsive
When your TripMates have a question, be sure to give an accurate answer and respond in a timely manner.
Be welcoming
Welcome your TripMates with open arms, and make them feel comfortable. Your trip will be a whole lot better if your TripMates feel like they are welcomed to be there.
