Common Locals

Connect travellers with local people to help them plan their trip

Common Locals is a marketplace where travellers can contact local people with similar interests to work together on the trip planning and choose the guidance level they want. This way, travellers can ensure they will do a customized and authentic trip without spending lots of hours searching for information and cheaper than with any kind of agency.

Hi all! This is Daniel from Common Locals. I'll be glad to ask you any question you might have.

Wanna join us to this trip?
I really like this idea. Services like TripAdvisor and Foursquare tend to be mostly written by tourists (especially when visiting touristy places). @Daniel_Romero92 how do you find the right locals for this?

P.S.
I know @levelsio was working on something similar a while back. Curious about the status of that project Pieter :wink:
Hello Marc, I'm so happy you like it! For us, the most important thing is that locals have things in common with travellers. In other words, like having a friend in destination who can imagine what is going to amaze you.
Your idea, which by the way is great bcs curated content is more individualized, is heavily depending on # of locals you can attract to share their knowledge. How do you plan to get them? I just remember some AirBnB hosts you provided some individual itinerary for their guests. For them, your service would be a win-win bcs they could share their knowlegde and push their occupancy
@rml723 You are right Reinhard, we will need to attract many locals to make this work. However, we are having so many applications because it's easier to create itineraries and share knowledge in comparison to renting your house. And I'm happy you mention AirBnB hosts because some of them are already sharing this knowledge with their guests. We are now testing many different ways to attract them, but any idea is more than welcome :)
I think that getting local insights is the best way to get info for travellling to special places. This is really appealing to alternative nomadists and millenials who wish to get the best out of their trips nowadays.
Many thanks @findthatlead ! We are open to any kind of feedback or suggestion!
well, this is on of the best products i've seen lately.
should be the Airbnb stepbrother!

good luck!
Thank you @ishalomdan ! We would love to listen more about your feedback & suggestions. We also invite you to join our community!
Wow! It's the first time I see a peer-to-peer marketplace for tourism like this. I travel a lot and I am tired of visiting the typical places and staying in hotels who can't tell me what really likes me. I will definitely use it as a traveler, and maybe, when I know more about my city, as a local :) Good luck with your adventure and keep us posted!!
Thanks @SharingAcademy for your feedback! Hope we keep in touch for next updates!
