Traditional travel agencies sell traditional travel packages. These are not tailored to you. 

 

We listen carefully to what you like and find you the best deal.

We don't have any expensive offices, or management to pay. Our local experts are often young people who just love to help you and make some money with it. 

As we keep our expenses low, you'll save a lot of money.

We understand trying a new concept can make you somewhat uneasy, especially when it comes to your holidays. Although we're super confident you'll have a blast, there's always a 100% money-back guarantee on all our plans.

Only pay if you're satisfied

Most traditional travel agencies don't have much in-house knowledge about your travel destination. With Traviqo you get advised by someone who actually knows the place – and often lives there.

  • Do I pay to register as a local expert?
    Nope! Signing up as a local expert is totally free! We do charge a success fee after a successful booking of 20% to further develop our platform and keeping it save.
  • Do I need to provide my payment info or credit card info right away?
    No that's not necessary. To process payments to you (in case you're a local expert), we need your payout information. You can enter this at the bottom of your profile. It is not necessary to do this straight ahead, but we do need it if you've received a booking request. As a local expert, it is not necessary to share your credit card details. If you want to use Traviqo as a traveler, we need your payment information when you want to finalize a booking request. You only pay after you've received the requested services.

  • Is Stripe available for my country?
    We use Stripe to process our payments. Stripe is available in a lot of countries worldwide, but not all. To see a full list of the available countries , you can go to their website.
  • How much do I earn as a local expert?
    You are free to choose your own hourly rate. Most local experts charge between € 5,- and € 50,- per hour, depending on experience and country of origin. We allow you to help travelers with different kinds of services. For each kind of service, you are given a fixed period of time. For finding flight tickets or accommodation this is 30 minutes, for organizing activities or local transport this is 15 minutes. Each meeting also includes one standard meeting of either 30 minutes or 60 minutes. The total amount of money you make is your hourly tariff multiplied by the services requested and the meeting. A traveler can book one service multiple times. For example: your hourly rate is € 30,- per hour. A traveler contacts you to help him finding flight tickets to Bali (30 minutes), and finding two different kinds of accommodations to stay in (2x 30 minutes). He also asks you to organize a diving trip (15 minutes) and the meeting takes 30 minutes. Your total fee will then be € 67,50 (2,25 x your hourly rate). The total amount of what you'll make with a request can also be found under 'my bookings'. Please bear in mind that we charge a small fee for using Traviqo. To further develop and maintain our platform and pay for other expenses we take a commission of 20%.
