be a traveler, not a tourist!
It is as easy as entering the city you want to meet people in and then connecting with them! Our platform will show you thousands of localites, whose profiles you can check before requesting to meet them!
Once you feel like you have found the perfect match, it is time to send a trip request! For this, you will need to provide where you’re going (from and to), the number of travelers there will be, and some information about you and why you have requested to take a trip with this localite!
Once the localite accepts your trip request, you can chat in real-time on our plaform and decide when and where to meet; without sharing your contact information. We recommend not to share contact information unless you feel safe.
You do not need to make a payment using localites, you make your payment offline. You and the localite can decide the amount and when you pay it. We suggest you discuss payments on the first time you meet or when the trip has been completed.
On localites you can find people who would like to host you at their places. Stay with locals to know how a local family experiences the day-to-day life.
People would love to meet you and take you through their cities even from your point of arrival. Apply filters in the search to look for those who can pick-up you. It really makes traveling easy!
Did everything go great? Make sure you leave a reference! References are vital to the community, as other people in the community can view them and decide if they might want to connect with the same localite as you did.
What you'll take back in the end are memories and friends you make during travel. So everything went well, go and explore the city with your new friend. Have a safe trip!
hear from someone else
localites is an excellent platform for people who want to experience the hidden sides of a city. It has given me a lot of friends and made my international trips so convenient.
When you travel on your own, you see and experience less. But when you have a localite to show you the city, you save a lot of time and experience true things about a city. I would definately say, localites had made my travel more simpler and less hectic.
I love traveling and meet new people! I always preferred traveling with someone who knows the city well and through. localites has solved now all problems of finding someone who can take us through the city deeply. Thanks you guys! Keep it up.
because nowhere else you can travel and earn
localites is a user friendly platform designed to help travelers. The aim is to ensure travelers are making new connections, seeing hidden gems around the world and essentially enabling people to travel for free! As it is a worldwide platform, we are able to help facilitate travel all over the world.
Our team is dedicated to the user-friendly experience and ensures that everyone on the app is as safe as can be. Your contact information will never be shared with anyone. So, you are always fully protected from our side. If you want to share your information, you are free to share.
You can utilize the time you would normally use watching Netflix or sitting at home by meeting new people, showing them your city and filling your pocket with money! Don't depend on one income source to survive in this expensive world.
It is also important to note that you can work/socialise on your terms! If you are busy or can’t accept trip requests for some reason, all you have to do is change your status to ‘Not Accepting Trip Requests’. It is totally up to you!
We make sure that no one can browse your profile unless he/she is a part of the community because we know it matters to you and so it to us.
We know the pain of watching/seeing ads and that's why we do not show any ads on our community platform. Neither on the website nor on our mobile applications.
Most travel agents just want our money and that's why we strictly do not allow any travel agent (who wants to use this platform for commercial purposes; we're fine if you want to join as an individual) or company to sign-in or use our platform.
Communities grow when there are genuine human beings involved in it. localites is all about people. Our team carefully look at every profile we receive. If we suspect any activity which is against our community guidelines, we act immediately.
