Who are Xploreo Homestay Families?
Xploreo homestay families are locals who are interested in meeting students and travelers just like yourself. Our hosts come from all walks of life. They are young and old, singles/couples/families with children, from rural and urban areas, male and female. If you aren’t planning a trip right now and you have a spare room in your house that’s home to your next garage sale, sign up today and start hosting guests in your home!
Xploreo flips the status quo voluntourism model on its head, putting the volunteer and the grassroots charity at the center.
Who is Xploreo Local Living Best For?
We require that all Xplorers be of at least 18 years of age. Xploreo is especially created for independent travelers who are comfortable landing somewhere new and exploring it without the (sometimes overbearing) hand of a (rather expensive) travel agent or third-party company. We allow travelers to directly connect with locals, without a middleman, and we believe anyone with their wits about them, over the age of 18, can and should engage in this kind of meaningful travel!
How do I book a Homestay Family?
You can book a homestay by entering your chosen host’s profile, check the availability for the dates you’re interested and the booking will be added to your cart. After that, you can click on the View Cart button and proceed to checkout. If you want to make any changes to your booking, you can click on the Update Cart button.
Can I rate my homestay family after the experience?
Most definitely! We encourage you to! Xploreo’s community is built on community knowledge sharing. Have a great experience? Help your homestay family and future xplorers find each other! After you have completed your Xploreo program, please rate and provide feedback for your host and the Xploreo community.They are legit, and real people! We encourage Xplorers to reach out and start a conversation with potential NGO hosts on our messaging platform. Get to know them, let them get to know you. Only when you feel comfortable and ready to go, you can book on the Xploreo platform.
