The things we help with

At Traviqo we help travelers with different kinds of services. These are:

  • Providing background information

  • Fixing flight tickets

  • Finding accommodations and lodging

  • Arranging local transportation

  • Organizing awesome activities

As a local you can choose what you'd like to help with. Some feel comfortable helping with all kinds of services, while others prefer to help with only one or two. 

Travelers can indicate what they need help with, and find a local that can provide that assistance. Helping with a broader range of services is therefore sometimes useful. 

Below you find the different kinds of activities. To help you plan and organize these, you can click the 'get tips' button for extra tips for each service type.

Creating awesome trips:
The do's of awesome travel agents

Tip 1: Communication is key

Okay this may sound obvious, but  communication really is key. So: listen carefully to the wishes of the traveler. If you're not totally sure about something, don't be afraid to ask!

Tip 2: share local tips 

Our travelers choose Traviqo because they want to travel in a unique way. Away from the masses and discovering hidden gems - with a little bit of help from you. 

By adding local tips 'n' tricks you know but travelers don't you provide added value and make sure the travelers get a unique experience.

Tip 3: stay in touch

If all is well most questions the traveler may have are already answered before they leave. But  something unexpected may occur. Most travelers really appreciate if you can help out when they have questions after their arrival. 

Not sure how you can help? Just send a small text as a follow up the day after their arrival!
