How it works

How It Works

Imagine traveling to a new destination and already having a friend there to show you their city — whether you meet for a meal or a tour of town — someone who might be similar to you in age, profession and interests. Triptrotting will help you feel like a local when you travel.

Not traveling? You can sign up as a host and meet up with world travelers visiting your city.


Travel like a local and enhance your experience by having a local friend show you the best of your destination city! Get recommendations, meet up and have fun or even stay with a local.



You can make new friends from all over the world without even getting on a plane! Get matched with like-minded world travelers and expand your global network.
