Reviews from our Local Destination Experts
James Miller
Professional Tour Guide
"Working with JoinMyTrip has been amazing. My trips get a lot of visibility because they share it in their newsletters and on their homepage. This makes it really easy and quick to find people who want to book my trips. They have so many eager travelers on their platform, ready to join in on the adventures that I offer."
Richard Hansen
Professional Skipper
"They only charge a tiny commission rate, paid by the travelers. I also really appreciate their cancellation policy which assures that I either have enough time to find a replacement or that I am secured financially. Would definitely recommend using JoinMyTrip!"

What is a Local Destination Expert?
A Local Destination Expert is either a professional tour guide, tour operator or someone who is very knowledgable about the trips that they offer.

As a Local Destination Expert you create unique experiences for your TripMates, and are required to travel with your group as well as organize accommodation and transportation.
Can I post a one-day trip or a trip that only lasts a few hours?
No, you may not post a single day trip or a trip that only lasts a few hours. Your trip should include at least a one-night stay, however, it is recommended that you offer trips of 3 days or more.

JoinMyTrip promotes group experiences where TripMates are able get to know each other as well as get to know their local destination expert. This is difficult to achieve with single-day trips, as such, we recommend trips of 3 days or more.
Do I, as a Local Destination Expert, have to plan the entire journey myself?
As a Local Destination Expert, you are required to plan the entire trip from organizing accommodation and transport to organizing all activities and destinations. For this, you can charge a TripLeader fee to cover your own travel expenses and to earn money for organising the trip.

An advance payment from trip mates creates commitment - so you make sure that nobody backs out.
Do I, as a Local Destination Expert have to travel with the group?
Yes, you are required to travel with your TripMates at all times.
Will JoinMyTrip 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 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.

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. The moment your trip is reviewed by our team & goes online, we inform our members about your plans & within a few days, you will find members requesting to join your trip. You can chat with them to get to know them better, decide who you would like to travel with & ask your trip mates to pay you in advance.

When you post your trip on our website, you'll also get your own trip-link that you can share anywhere on social media - Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, WhatsApp, in forums or anywhere else. Your journey always looks good, no matter if it's on an iPhone, Android device or a laptop.
What is the cancellation policy?
Cancellation of travel components

  • A TripMate is to be refunded the price of the trip as far as possible, taking into account that other TripMates as well as the Local Destination Expert (LDE) must not be worse off by the cancellation.

  • Both the LDE and JoinMyTrip will make all reasonable efforts to find a "replacement LDE" and thus enable a full refund of the travel price.

Cancellation of the accommodation

  • Costs for accommodation not yet booked are to be refunded in full

  • Already booked single rooms are to be refunded to the extent that the cancellation conditions of the respective provider allow it

  • Already booked double/multiple rooms/accommodations are to be refunded to the extent that the cancellation conditions of the respective provider allow and the other TripMates of the group are not put at a disadvantage. E.g. double room: if there is no other accommodation available, the cancelling TripMate will be refunded the difference between a double room and a single room.

Cancellation of the transport

  • Costs for not yet booked means of transport (car, train, plane, etc.) are to be refunded in full

  • Already booked tickets for transport are to be refunded to the extent that the cancellation conditions of the provider allow it

  • Already booked means of transport are to be refunded to the extent that the cancellation conditions of the respective provider allow it and the other TripMates of the group are not put at a disadvantage. E.g. car rental: if there is no other possibility of transportation, the cancelling TripMate will only be refunded to the extent that it does not cost the other TripMates of the group any more.

Cancellation of activities and other things

  • Costs for activities not yet booked (sightseeing, sports activities, etc.) and other costs are to be refunded in full

  • Already booked activities and any other things are to be refunded to the extent that the cancellation conditions of the respective provider allow it
