As a Verified Member, apply and travel as much as you like for a year. Collaboration is what moves us :-)

The Couples and Friends Plan allows you to invite a partner to also become a Verified Member, so each of you don't have to get the Solo Plan separately. Sweet!

Then you can connect your profiles to apply to hosts, chat and volunteer together!

Our reimbursement policies are the same as those for canceling your annual membership. To read the full details, click here.

Don't worry. We do not renew your annual plan automatically, so you will only be charged once. One year after your first payment, your plan will expire and if you want to sign up for another year, you’ll have to go to the purchase page again to pay for another year.

It's up to you to renew your membership and continue your travels around this amazing world :)

When traveling as a couple or two friends, one of you can choose the "Couple and Friends Plan".

Once the payment is approved, the payer can invite the second traveler and thus connect the two accounts.

Once connected, you both can apply to any host that accepts doubles (:
