What does BlendWiz.Me mean for Travelers?

Often time’s travelers (business and leisure) find themselves in a new city, which they hardly know, and although the internet contains huge amounts of information, travelers often wish they had someone local to show them around and provide them with firsthand useful information about what to do, where to go, where to eat and much more. Travelers are also keen on getting to know new people and cultures. In BlendWith.Me, travelers will find local people, which for a very small hourly fee, will show them around, provide local advice and help them to Blend In – just like locals do…

We name these locals – Blenders, as they help travelers blend in.

How do I become a Blender?

If you like meeting interesting people from around the world and sharing your knowledge and passion about your home town, then this might be the thing for you.

As a Blender, you will need to offer some kind of activity for travelers. It can be just a tour in your neighborhood, a culinary tour in the local market, or a cycling tour in the park. Travelers from around the world can contact you through your profile and ask to join you in your activity.

You can offer your activity for free, charge just a nominal fee, or even take this as an opportunity to make a buck and charge like a professional tour guide.

Blending process

I am a Blender. What type of information do I need to get from travelers before an activity?

We recommend to swap phone numbers while making the arrangements for the meeting. Set up a date, time and exact location (use Google maps). Make sure to have something that will identify you, and also that you can recognize your traveler. Furthermore, if your activity demands special kind of physical state, please make sure to let the traveler know.

As a blender do I get paid directly from the travelers?

We recommend to take the payment at the end of the activity, depends on the activity type..This decision is completely up to you. The payment will be done at the day of the activity, and will be paid directly to you. Blendwiz.me is a social tourism platform and was made for the people.

Insurance / Emergencies

Am I insured during the activity time?

 

Travel insurance protects the financial investment in a trip, including lost baggage and trip cancellation. Depending on the policy, this type of insurance may or may not cover medical expenses abroad, so travelers need to carefully research the coverage offered to determine if additional travel health and medical evacuation insurance is needed.

BlendWiz.Me will not be held liable for any injuries or equipment lose/ damage of any kind. Hence we urge travelers to make sure they are properly insured for any activity they choose to take.

Members issues

Does the blender have to provide a full activity plan to the traveler?

No. Before signing up for an activity, travelers can chat freely with blenders and get all the information they wish. We urge travelers to ask as many questions regarding the activity so there will be no surprises. We recommend to speak directly with the blenders via Skype / mobile / or email conversation for fully detailed information.

I am a traveler. Can I pay directly to the blender after the activity?

Yes. BlendWiz.me is for the people. We don’t charge any fee form the blender or the traveler. You can choose to pay at the beginning of the activity or at the end.

Before you meet up with a traveler/ blender, make sure you have his/her cell phone number, so in case this happens, you can reach them via Facebook. What’s Up, or Skype and even an SMS.

Moreover, when you set up the meeting, make sure you both understand exactly where to meet and that there is no miscommunication. Regarding the place & time.
