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.

"Planning my travels with JoinMyTrip allowed me to not only help fund my backpacking trip to Norway but to meet amazing, like-minded people who wanted to share the same great experience as me. We all wanted to enjoy this adventure to the fullest while keeping it low-budget, which is exactly what happened. Simply amazing!"

"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. "

"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 am a self proclaimed adventure-addict and I'm always on the search for the next unique trip. I wanted to visit Vietnam and experience something brand new. My friends lacked enthusiasm so I decided to share my trip on this platform and found incredible travel buddies who were as excited as me. On top of this, I was able to fund the trip simply by planning it myself. Amazing!"

"Last summer I fancied relaxing on the beach in Spain; digging my toes into the sand while enjoying an ice cold drink. I shared my trip on the platform and before I knew it, I was having the best time with some amazing people. Better yet; I was able to fund the trip just by planning it myself. It was just incredible… so much so that I am already planning my next trip."

FAQs
How much does JoinMyTrip cost for TripLeaders?
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 info@joinmytrip.com.
How much do I need to organize?
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.

How do I create a trip?
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.
What should I consider while planning a 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.

How do I find TripMates?
JoinMyTrip helps you to find suitable TripMates. Our community consists of 125,000 globetrotters, all of whom can't wait to discover the world! If you post your trip on our website, you will get your own link that you can share everywhere -- Facebook, WhatsApp, forums or anywhere. Your trip will always look great, whether it's on a mobile phone, a tablet or computer.
What we do to help you find TripMates:

  • Your trip is advertised on our social media platforms and in our newsletter

  • We expertly use SEO methods on our website and social media platforms, so your trip can be found on Google

  • Your trip is advertised on our homepage

  • We have more than 100,000 visitors every month who are looking for a trip

Can I decide who can join my trip?
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.
When do TripMates transfer money for bookings?
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.
