Tripalocal is an online platform that connects travellers with locals for authentic local experiences. This is Airbnb for quality real experiences, offered by locals who are passionate about or have in-depth knowledge of the experiences.
Experiences are wide ranging, from learning to cook a local dish to seeing the city through the eyes of a photographer.
Locals have expertise in the experiences they provide - this platform provides an effective avenue for them to create greater value from their knowledge base.
Whilst initial launch will be in Australia, Tripalocal sees significant opportunities in Asia where currency conversions and a competitive employment market mean this platform would have significant benefits to local hosts.
Feedback from travellers shows they see this as a cost effective method for local experiences with quality that is lacking in free services. Locals with expertise in certain areas are working with us to refine experiences to match quality expectations.
