TRAVELING JUST GOT SOCIAL! *********** Travel Pal helps you find new people and make friends as you travel the world! It’s based on the concept of couchsurfing, but actually takes couchsurfing to the next level.
If you are traveling, you can use Travel Pal to find a place to stay. It also helps you find a local partner or guide who knows the place. And with the assisted phrasebook guides and translation tools, you can talk to anyone in their native language in just a few minutes.
You can also list yourself on the app to be a host to other travelers and tourists and become an active member of the couchsurfing community.
With Travel Pal, you can travel freely without any language barriers.

TRAVEL THE WORLD, WITH THE WORLD *********** As a TRAVELER, you can easily find locals who are willing to help you during your stay.

Then you can either just sit back and wait for interested Hosts from that destination to contact you, or do a quick search for locals in that area. Once you find potential hosts, chat with them, confirm your booking and plan your travel.
Trips are logged on Travel Pal and subject to our User Review and Feedback system to help keep the community safe.

LET THE WORLD TRAVEL TO YOU *********** Even if we can’t travel, it doesn’t have to stop us from meeting new people and making friends around the world!
As a HOST, you’ll have the opportunity to welcome and help visitors to your city during their stay, including: • Showing them around • Meeting up for a drink or a meal • Giving advice • Offering a place to stay
In extending kindness and generosity to travelers, you’ll build lasting friendships and learn about the world, even without stepping out of your doorstep!
LANGUAGE IS NOT A BARRIER *********** Not speaking any foreign language is no longer a barrier to communicating with the people of the world and getting to know them!
Not only does Travel Pal come with a full-featured chat messaging system (with voice and video calling), but it also has built-in phrasebooks and translation tools that make communication as super easy. You can learn a foreign language before you visit that place, so you can communicate fluently during your stay.
