How it works
1. Plan & Offer
Organize your trip and calculate the Cost per TripMate (accommodation, transportation and other activities). Offer your trip to our community of like-minded travelers. It's free, including our customer support.
2. Publish & Chat
Interested TripMates ask to join your trip, chat with them and get to know each other. Choose the ones you like and get 20% of the trip cost from them, which solidifies their commitment. Use this money to cover organisation and reservation expenses. You receive the remaining amount 2-6 weeks before departure date, which you set when creating the trip.
3. Travel & Meet
Travel hassle-free with committed TripMates. Explore the world in a small group, share your experiences with like-minded travelers and collect meaningful memories. Come back home with new friends.
Words from our existing non-professional TripLeaders
"My passion? Surfing! Sharing this passion with other like-minded people and being able to fund the trip by planning it myself? Even better! I just love the idea of being able to travel with a bunch of people who share the same interests."
"JoinMyTrip was always available to support me as a TripLeader. No matter the problem, they were only ever one click away. Whenever I needed guidance or had a question relating to organizing, travel mates or anything else, they were always there for me"
"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."

Free Community & Support
Love free things? So do we. That's why using JoinMyTrip is free, including our Community Support.
JoinMyTrip is and will stay free for TripLeaders. If you offer your trip on joinmytrip.com, we even support you with the planning and the organization. Just send us a message on Facebook or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a TripLeader, you should initially only organize transport and accommodation. If you also plan several activities and support the group during the trip, this will make your trip even more attractive.
If you just want to publish a loose route online and would like to plan together with your TripMates, you should also create a post.
You can upload your trip with our easy-to-use Editor.
Make sure to display your trip with individuality. Adapting the trip to your travel style gives it personality and makes it more interesting for TripMates. If you include local recommendations, secret spots, and show you have experience leading groups or know the destination, many TripMates will want to join your trip.
For your trip to be successful, we advise you to do the following:
Upload your trip at least two months before the planned departure. Based on our experience, we know that you are going to find more TripMates this way.
Communicate clearly how active your TripMates should be. "Do you want to go hiking or just lie on the beach?"
Remember local holidays and festivals -- Ramadan, Canada Day, Christmas, Diwali or Chinese New Year -- when making plans..
Your TripMates should be with you from the beginning to the end of the trip. Of course, a TripMate may join the group late or leave early. This causes a lot of work for you. If you want to travel with as many different travelers as possible, simply split your trip by offering three shorter trips.
We recommend trips between one and four weeks long. Of course, you can also offer longer or shorter trips. However, on short trips it's difficult to get to know your TripMates well and long trips can be exhausting even for experienced travelers. Trips that are longer than 28 days need to be split up or changed to a Post.
A complete program is exciting. However, keep in mind that you're on vacation, so plan some time for relaxation and as a buffer if something doesn't go as planned.

Yes, you are in control of your trip and decide who can join. After TripMates send in a request to join, you can chat and get to know each other. Once you decided you'd like to travel with this person, you send them a payment request.
The process starts when interested TripMates ask you to join your trip. After you chat and get to know each other, you send a payment request to TripMates you'd like to travel with. To confirm a commitment to your trip, TripMates pay 20% of the cost up front. Use this money to cover organization and reservation expenses. You will receive the unpaid balance two to six weeks before the trip starts. You decide the final payment date when you create your trip.
