We prefer Community Happiness, but you can also call us Support! The Community Happiness team was named as such for being the team that goes the extra mile for helping out all our users in a fun and caring way. It is available for hosts and travelers that wish to ask questions, give feedback and, mainly, to help them with problems that may occur before, during and after a trip.
The Support Team is divided in two service channels: the email email@example.com and Ben, the cat, our Travel Buddy (only available for travelers who are Verified Members). The Travel Buddy is an individual space for our travelers that wish to ask questions, give feedback and for those who need any kind of help.
Our email is available for everyone who wants to contact Worldpackers: those who still aren’t members, those who are creating their profile, those who want to become Verified Members, those who want to confirm a trip, who already have a confirmed trip, those who are back already and want to give us feedback, those who want to become hosts or who already are hosts – in other words, everyone!
If you have doubts, problems or feedback, our team will be more than willing to listen and help you out!
