Let's create some awesome activities

At Traviqo we help travelers with unique holiday experiences. With a little bit of help from you. At this page we help you organize holiday activities, as part of the different packages.


In short: 

The 'activities package' includes all the different kind of things that a traveler would like to do at his destination. Whether that is  a wine tasting tour at some local vineyards, scuba diving or hiking a trail to discover ancient ruins. Some travelers don’t know exactly what they would like to do, apart from doing something adventurous. It’s up to you to surprise them with all the awesome things they can do at their destination!

First things first: what you should know

Before you can start there are a few essential things you should know. Don't know the answer to one of the questions? Just ask during the initial meeting.

The things you should know: 

  • What are the kind of activities the traveler or travel company likes?

  • What is the destination? 

  • When is the trip taking place? 

  • Who is joining?

  • What is the budget?

  • What are any other wishes?

Let's share some great ideas

Obviously, the activities you select for the traveler are tailored to his needs. That being said, we thought we might share some ideas that might be used as inspiration.  

 

1.  An alternative city tour

City tours always are a great way to explore a city. It's just that sometimes get a bit, well.. boring? But did you know there are plenty of alternative city tours? Discover the cities night life or its local cuisine. Or even see it through the eyes of those who have no home. Make sure the tour matches what the traveler is looking for, is something special and high quality. 

2. A wine tasting tour through various estates

Who doesn't love a good glass of wine? There are plenty of regions around the world which are famous for its wines. In most of these regions you can  go visit the wine estates, which is awesome if you're a fan of the grape. The best tours are tailored to the preferences of the traveler, so call the estates you love to see whether you can visit them.

3. Design an unforgettable road trip

A personal favorite. You arrange a lease car (or motor bike!) based on the preferences of the traveler, plan the route, make reservations at awesome accommodations along the way and share info on things to visit during the trip. We always love road tripping as it is a perfect way to discover a country, but a creative alternative might be a train trip which is at least as awesome. 

4.Hike & camp in nature

Hiking in nature can be so relaxing. You can use existing routes or design one based on the preferences of the traveler through the most impressive woods, hills and mountains. Arrange for a place to sleep, places to eat and plenty of things to see. Some countries allow for wild camping which is a lot of fun! 

5. Don't be afraid to ask

We are always happy to help out in case you have any questions, run into an issue or just wanna chat. So don't be afraid to reach out! You can reach me personally via jesse@traviqo.com

Important stuff: what you should include

Convince

Convince the traveler why what you have composed is just awesome to do.  

Cash

Tell the traveler how much he or she can expect to pay for the activities included in your plan

Contact

You include all the links to the activities, or other contact details if no site is available

to Come

Tell the traveler what the next steps are and what happens from here.

What can you expect?

Step 1: Traveler chooses Wizard

After you have created a Wizard profile on our platform, travelers may reach out to you for help. When someone does, we will send you an email with a booking request, which you can either accept or decline.

Step 4: intake chat

This is the main way to really get to know the traveler and his or her wishes. During this chat you can give a summary of your findings so far and ask for feedback. Make sure that after this chat you really know how you can help the traveler. The chat usually takes around 30 minutes and is done via a platform such as Google Meet. Don't forget to discuss when the traveler can expect your itinerary.

Step 2: Traveler shares wishlist

When the traveler sends a request, we require him/her to share a bit of what they need help with (info, tickets, accommodations or activities), some details of the trip (such as date and destination) and their budget. 

Step 5: finetune itinerary

Now it is time to make your magic happen! After the chat you now have a clear idea of how you can help. Use your experience and creativity to find awesome activities. Don't be afraid to get off the beaten track! The best things to do aren't the one that everyone may find on Tripadvisor, but the things you know from own experience. Best stuff? Things that you arrange yourself.

Step 3: prepare for intake

You can use this info to start looking around a bit and start composing a rough outline. No need to go into too much details, but it's really helpful for you to come to the intake chat prepared. 

 

Step 6: share & feedback

The last step in this awesome journey is sharing your findings and recommendations with the traveler. We are sure he or she will love it, so no need to stress. It's always really good to ask for feedback, it helps you improve and get even better! Also, if the traveler thinks something is not perfect yet, this is a good moment to help out and go that extra mile. 

Requirements

There are a few elements you will need to include when you will share your plans with the traveler. We include them below: 

 

  1. Name of activity

  2. Description of activity

  3. Why you think this is awesome

  4. Location

  5. Contact info (direct url, phone number)

  6. Costs

  7. Other relevant info

IMPORTANT: some activities can get fully booked or become unavailable for another reason. Make sure you share your activities as soon as possible, to ensure it is available when the traveler wants to book it.

Share your expertise

When creating a profile on our platform, you will be asked how you can help travelers. Some love composing activities or finding that sweet home abroad, while others are allrounders. By telling us what you love we are better able to create good matches. 

Time slots

We have reserved  certain amounts of time for different kinds of packages. For flight tickets this is 30 minutes, local transport 15 minutes, finding accommodation 30 minutes, and an activity 15 minutes. Travelers can choose multiple items, so if they'd like to stay at 3 different places, the total amount will be 90 minutes.

You decide what you'll earn per hour. Based on the packages added by the traveler, we can then calculate what you'll make. Say a traveler needs help with 2 accommodations, 2 tickets and 3 activities. The total amount of time is then: 60 min + 60 min + 45 min = 165 minutes. When you charge USD 30  p/h, you will make 85 USD in total.

pay day

We usually pay within 2 weeks after submitting your final itinerary. Make sure you enter your banking details at your profile, as we need this info for the payout.
