Our platform is based on verifying businesses to assure that you’re having a good time and being safe. Look out for our verified symbol which signals listings that we have visited and reviewed. We can not be responsible for your actions, but here are some safety basics for guidance.
TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS
If a person or situation seems unsafe for any reason, move on. Don’t worry about seeming rude. Be clear about your boundaries and don’t be shy about stating them. Communicate clearly with others and take care of yourself.
BE INFORMED ABOUT THE CULTURE
Do your homework, and be sure you’re aware of cultural and religious differences, sensitivities, and general safety recommendations for each place that you travel. Gender roles and expectations can differ. Consider using the following resources for safety alerts and advisories:
- U.S. Department of State: Travel Alerts and Warnings
- Government of UK: Foreign Travel Advice
- Government of Canada: Country Travel Advice and Advisories
- Auswärtiges Amt Deutschland: Reise- und Sicherheitshinweise
KNOW YOUR LIMITS
Partying like a rockstar might be fun, but it puts your safety and well-being in the hands of others.
Use the Review System to let other travelers know about your experiences with the people you meet and places you visit. Be honest and clear.
