How it works
A Global Neighbourhood
If you crave colourful cultures, meaningful conversations, authentic experiences and a generous dose of good times, then you’re well on your way to being a Localoid. Our aim is simple: we want to help each other in any and every way possible, whether we’re travelling or at home in our own awesome cities. We want to create international friendships and, ultimately, a global neighbourhood.
So wherever you’re from, and wherever you’re going, you know you’ll always find people who are just like you: amigos, comrades…Localoids.
Sounds cool. So what does being a Localoid mean?
- When you travel you can:
- Meet locals who are into the same things as you;
- Get inside tips on the best things to see, do and experience in the area;
- Return the favour by helping out in any way you can, like sharing your photography or music skills, or cooking them a delicious meal;
- Share your culture and help them practice your language while you chat and explore their area; and
- Potentially even stay with a local!
- In your own city you can:
- Meet interesting people who are travelling in your area from all around the world;
- Practice a language with a traveller and learn about their culture as you show them around your city;
- Ask them for some help! Who knows...they might have writing, art or other skills or knowledge you’ve always wanted to learn;
- Help travellers discover the best bits of your home town and its culture by giving them advice and tips; and
- Host a traveller, if you like!

Want to be a Localoid in your own city?
Localoids is going global, but first, we want to make sure we’re doing it right. We’re opening in Europe soon, but it’s completely up to you which cities we’ll start in!
When we reach enough sign ups from a European location, we’ll open up there for Localoids who call that city home, as well as members who are travelling there.
This means that the faster you sign up (and get your friends to sign up too), the sooner you can enjoy the benefits of being a Localoid.
There are also other reasons to sign up now:
Have you ever ended up with a username that looks something like ‘firstnamelastname123xyz’?
Yeah, us too. No one wants that. Be one of the first Localoids and you’ll get to reserve your username before anyone else snaps it up.
And to say thanks for being one of our original members, we’ll be sending a special deal your way when we launch in early November.
