Words from our existing non-professional TripLeaders
"I shared my sailing trip on the platform and was able to fund the entire trip, just by planning it myself. I think what I love most about this concept is that you can travel with a bunch of people who share the same passions as you. Sailing has brought us together and friendship will keep us this way."
"I have been a member for 2 years now. Whenever I organise trips, I get to travel with people from different backgrounds and cultures which I think is exactly what travelling is all about. What I like the most is that you can chat with your travel mates in advance, so you can decide who you would like to take on your trip. This way it is easy to find people who you know you will get on well with."
"The support network on JoinMyTrip is amazing. I was worried that being so far away from home in a country I had never been to before would make me feel uncomfortable but this was not the case. They always made me feel like I could ask any question or come to them with any concern I had. Knowing that there was always someone on the other end of the line made me feel safe which meant I could fully concentrate on having the best time with my TripMates."

Members who offer planned trips on joinmytrip.com are called TripLeaders. They plan the trip, book accommodations, transportation in advance and support the TripMates during the trip.
Do I, as TripLeader, have to plan the entire journey myself?
No! As a TripLeader, you should primarily only book accommodation and transport for everyone. For this, you can charge a TripLeader fee to cover your own travel expenses or to earn money for organising the trip.
An advance payment from trip mates creates commitment - so you make sure that nobody backs out.
How does JMT earn it's money?
The answer may surprise you at first: at the moment we don't earn a single penny! That's why the service is completely free for everyone. This is the hard startup life :)
We are passionate travellers ourselves & to keep the travellers spirit alive forever, we don't want annoying advertisements on this site. However, we know that at some point, we wont be able to pay the bills out of our own pocket anymore. Which is why we will have to take a small service fee from the Trip Mates & Trip Leaders in future. But of course, this fee will not be as high as with Airbnb or BlaBlaCar.
Will JMT support me if something goes wrong
We are here for you! If something goes wrong, just let us know by dropping an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to help you out. Our community is big & growing. Members support each other in difficult times as we all know that travel can sometimes offer unexpected situations.
How do I create a trip?
Within a few minutes, you can put your trip online using our trip editor. Our trip editor enables you to add a day by day itinerary, activities, things to do etc. It's super easy & fun to use.
Customise your trip to your travel style - this personal touch makes your trip more interesting for the TripMates.
How do I find TripMates?
JoinMyTrip helps you in finding suitable TripMates. We are a growing strong community of 125,000+ trustworthy members who are always looking for interesting trips.
