What kind of activities can I offer?
You can offer all types of authentic local experiences to travelers like homestays, farmstays, guided tours, home dinners, cooking classes, handicraft workshops, volunteering work and many more. Most important thing is that it needs to be authentic and unique in which people can really experience your country and culture.
How does I Like Local work?If your activities meet our requirements and we have received the necessary information, we will create your I Like Local website page and promote it for you. From then onwards a traveler can send you a booking request or can send you a question per email. You have 48 hours to reject or confirm this booking. When confirmed you will receive the travelers details (phone number and email) and you can arrange meeting-point and other practical details.
How will I get paid?You will be paid on location by the traveler in cash or with card, whatever option you prefer. In case you require a deposit you will have to arrange this with the traveler as soon as the booking has been confirmed from your side. We need to mention this on your I Like Local web page.
