FAQs
What if I paid in advance for accommodation and transportation and my TripMates don't show up?

Since you get 20% of the trip price in advance from all of your TripMates, you can use that amount to pay for accomodation and transportation.
What if I don't find enough TripMates?
Our community consists of more than 150,000 travellers. We are pretty sure you'll find the TripMates you were looking for.

In case you haven't found enough TripMates when the trips is about to start, we highly recommend to add a little comment in your trip description that the trip price might increase if the minimum amount of TripMates is not found. In that case you can talk to your exisiting TripMates directly abou the price changes. You can also set a policy in your trip description according to the specifics of that trip (e.g. "Minimum Group size is 3 people, if we do not find 3 people by 30.07.2020 you will have the option to pay a bit more on arravial or get a refund").
What happens if I don't get along with a TripMate during the trip but trip costs have been paid?
As a TripLeader, you have full control of who will join your trip. That's why we highly recommend that you get to know your future TripMates thoroughly before accepting them to join your trip. You can do so through our chat on the website. If you realise that things are not working out during the trip, talk to each other and discuss if you want to split. In this case you will have to refund the TripMate for the remaining part of the journey. Obviously, our 24/7 customer support is always available to help.
What happens if costs increase during the trip?
We recommend you to add a buffer to the trip price that can include unexpected expense.
If I have to plan accommodation and transportation, how can my trip be flexible?
The flexibility our TripMates expect on a trip is that they are free to do things based on their interests in a particular location. That's why you should make sure your trip price is realistic. You can change the trip price at any time, however once you request payment from a TripMate the price for that TripMate cannot change. However you can still adjust it for new TripMates. Before you request payment from a TripMate you have to fix the departure date to the date that you have agreed on.
