Local Friends come from very distinct backgrounds. You don’t need a degree to be a Friend but we do look for some attributes to make sure our friends are always going to be the best possible hosts!
As a local friend, we expect you too:
1. Have a flexible schedule
Most of our friends are freelancers or flex workers who can make time to welcome visitors during their work week. You must be available and reliable if you wish to be a Friend.
2. Enjoy travelling and making new friends
We are a travel website and our Friends are open minded people who love to travel. If you share our love for travel and are open to new cultures and new people, you are half way there to becoming a Local Friend.
3. Know how to be a great host
Local Friends are friendly hosts who love their cities and are thrilled to show them to the world. You don’t need a Masters in Hospitality to be a great host but you must be entertaining, polite and outgoing.
4. Have authentic interests
We are not saying that all Local Friends must be eccentrics but having an authentic hobby or interest will make you very appealing to visitors. If you know some cool, authentic, unique or hidden spots in town, that’s even better.
5. Speak English and other languages
English is the main language of our platform and you must be proficient in it to become a Friend. The more languages you speak the better.
