Travel companions FAQ

Posted by somtam2000 on 25/2/2009 at 08:04 admin

Just a quick note, this forum is for people looking for others to travel with -- not sleep with... by that I mean it's not a dating forum!

So, if you're looking for a travelmate, post as much information as you're comfortable doing. As we don't have a "private messaging" thing on Travelfish, you will have to post email addresses at some stage (or organise to meet-up somewhere), but I'd suggest not entering your email address in your opening post -- wait till you've had some responses -- and use the "notification" function, so you receive an email whenever someone responds to your thread.

You'll be more likely to get good responses if you make use of a good topic title -- so "Guy heading to Thailand, for 14 days, in July" is more likely than something like "Looking for a travelmate".

Lastly, please be sensible about how much information you reveal online about yourself.

Good luck!

How do travel buddies work? I'm quite hesitant on traveling with someone who I barely know. How would you know that the person you are with is harmless?

"How would you know that the person you are with is harmless?"
You don't.
Trust your instincts. If it doesn't feel right then it probably isn't.
