Profile and Endorsements

Worldpacker traveler profiles are complete with information about their travel and work experience, skills and personality. All of which can be endorsed by their friends.

Chat, attachments and video

Chat, accept and decline a traveler's application in a few clicks. You can also ask for the traveler to record a video for you with the application or attach a file (such as a CV).

Android and iOS mobile apps

Our mobile app for Hosts make it easier and faster to answer requests. Download our app and find the perfect volunteer whilst on the go.


Rules to ensure traveler commitment


Trip Confirmation

When volunteers confirm their stay, you'll have an official agreement (and not just a text message). Know exactly to which volunteer position they've agreed to and their arrival and departure dates.

Worldpackers Fee

Our travelers pay us a fee when they confirm a stay through our platform. We think it's fair to charge them on a per trip basis : ) And it's also a great way to make sure they'll show up and do what was agreed with you.

No spammy applications

We value your time so travelers can only make a limited amount of application every day. This encourages them to take their time and think hard about where they really want to apply.

A proper profile for a proper Host

Volunteer Positions

Clearly present the open staff positions you have. Create as many volunteer positions as you need, whether you need 2 for the same job or several with different skills, availabilities and requirements.

Profile tags

Whether your place is great for partying, business or nature, let our travelers know by using our profile tags.

Be seen by millions

We don't hide your business name and info. All of the visitors that pass through your Worldpackers profile will get to know and recognize your name and brand. And we receive over 1 million visitors every month!

Reviews from Staff

Former volunteers leave public reviews of their staff experience on your profile. You might even receive an award such as Most Desired Places to Collaborate.
