Of course! If you want to travel with a partner, spouse, relative, friend, BFF, or anyone else, just follow these instructions:
- People above 18 years old
Each person has to have an account and profile at Worldpackers as Verified Members and apply for the same host on the same dates!
Then just let them know on your applications that you’re traveling together and wait for the host's response. You can also request to stay in the same room; it all depends on the host’s availability and willingness to accept your requests :)
Note that your host may need help with different shifts, so it’s likely that you’ll have separate daily tasks and may not be working together all the time. Ask the host about that too!
The payment of the annual fee is done individually on each account, so to confirm a trip, each person needs to pay the fee in their own account.
Important: each traveler’s profile on Worldpackers can only be linked to one person. All the information and descriptions on the profile can only be from one user. Worldpackers reserves the right to remove double accounts (of couples and/or groups) and cancel trips already confirmed without prior notice.
- Children (below 18 years old)
If you want to take your children with you, the first thing you need to do is talk to your host. Some of them, especially hostels, don’t accept underage people because the environment may not be the most adequate for minors.
On the other side, other hosts such as NGOs, farms or guesthouses can be open to them and are a good place for them to have a good experience.
As Worldpackers’ goal is to promote the exchange of skills for accommodation, it can be difficult for some hosts to accept children. That’s why it’s always important to ask before because there is a good chance they won’t be able to host you. But don’t give up! Just talk to your host and apply for different programs so as to increase your chance of being accepted.
Important: underage people cannot create a profile at Worldpackers, therefore the Worldpackers Insurance is restricted to the overage person with a confirmed trip on our platform.
The first thing you need to do is talk to your host about it. Many hosts don’t accept pets for different reasons (they can’t accommodate them, they may cause some discomfort to their other guests, etc.). However, places like farms and eco-villages may be more open to take in your furry friend.
