We want to give you all the support you need before, during and after all your travels.
Because that's what we're here for: to make you travel more and more - with security, peace of mind and having awesome experiences :)
No matter when or where you're going, there will be a Worldpackers’ family member there for you - even if it's just for helping you pack your stuff.
We want to create a global community where travelers and hosts will be connected by their willingness to collaborate.
We like to think of this as making a more human connection. We want to continue providing volunteers more Worldpackers’ hosts, in more countries and with unique characteristics. Likewise, we want to provide hosts with more multi-skilled volunteers from all over the world.
We want to give everyone more choices and opportunities to have meaningful experiences. And all this comes at a cost, but nearly all of it is reinvested into the platform to improve your user experience and strengthen the community.
On the host's side, we have to ensure that travellers actually show up when they are supposed to.
Can you imagine how hard it is to find another volunteer to cover the shift they have already prepared for you? It's not an easy job.
Usually, when this happens, other volunteers who are there, employees and even the owner have to work overtime to cover the traveler who did not show up. This makes their lives really difficult.
Finally, creating honest relations is our main focus.
That’s why we are passionate about our members looking after their online reputation. We reward proactive, helpful members with excellent online reputations.
Building this relies on positive reviews and recommendations within our community. This is what we believe the sharing economy is all about.
Our fee will give you the power to have all of that. We want to continue developing features such as reviews and endorsements, which will allow you to build up a trustworthy reputation.
More importantly, Worldpackers is a growing community that is constantly learning from your feedback.
You probably don't think so, but your help can really transform Worldpackers.
If you have any doubts, suggestions, constructive criticism or tips, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org at anytime & we'll use it to keep improving our platform :)
