Is WeTravel the official organizer of the trips offered on www.wetravel.com?
WeTravel is a platform that connects trip organizers with travelers. WeTravel supports trip organizers in advertising trips, coordinating traveler registrations, and collecting money. We also vet every trip organizer that is listed in the WeTravel marketplace. However, the responsibility for organizing and conducting the trip lies fully with the trip organizer.
Why is my payment “pending”?
If you pay with your US checking account, the payment is processed within 3-5 business days. During this time your payment is labeled “pending.” A “pending” payment means that you have paid and completed your booking, but the funds are not yet available to the organizer. No further action is required on your part.

WeTravel does not have access at any point to the user’s financial data.

Can I join only part of a trip?
For many trips, it is possible to join only part of the trip. However, you would be responsible for all costs associated with joining a tour late or leaving early. Please contact the trip organizer for more details.
Are your trip organizers employed by a tour operator?
Many of our organizers are independent tour organizers and are not directly employed by a tour operator. They are travel aficionados that are passionate about taking you on an awesome, unique trip. We strongly believe that this provides you with a more authentic travel experience at a better price relative to commercial tour agencies. Although our organizers often work together in partnership with local travel agencies, their independent status guarantees that they will take you off the beaten path and truly show you the destination through the eyes of a local.
How is WeTravel able to offer such competitive prices?
Our unique business model offers tours that are organized directly by the trip organizer. There is no middleman, so we have much lower margins than traditional tour operators.
What if the trip turns out differently than advertised?
WeTravel takes great care in screening our trip organizers and our trips. In the unlikely case that a trip does not fulfill your expectations and differs substantially from the description on our site, we may partially or entirely refund the cost of your trip.
