What is Curious Traveler?

Here, travelers (age 18 and over) across the Globe can find traveling partners or groups to share their passion for exploring, learning about new cultures, and can learn tips for their journey.

Once a member, you can post about an upcoming trip to have like-minded people join you in your endeavor. Or, simply get feedback about your publicized event. You can also find posts of other members’ adventures that you are interested in joining.

We understand meeting people online can be intimidating, so Curious Traveler ensures your travel partner’s identity with ID verification through Stripe (Third party verification).

It’s a service provided by Stripe in which a traveler’s identity is verified by uploading a valid government issued identification. The member requesting verification needs to make sure to upload a current and valid form of ID.

For Premium members this is free for the first ID verification.

For Free Members, there is a fee of $17.95 for the first ID verification.

Need to make sure to upload a current valid non-expired government issued ID.  

Should it be necessary to re-process your request because an incorrect form of Government ID was uploaded to validate your identity, there is a re-processing fee of $7.95. These fees are to cover the additional administrative costs and verification charged by Stripe.

Once an individual’s identity is verified, they will have a blue check next to their profile. This adds an extra layer of security, when deciding to invite or join others on your or their travelers.

  1. Reach out and initiate contact by sending a message through the website to a compatible travel Companion.
  2. Use instant messaging (Subscription Needed). Can use this feature to communicate instantly in order to get to know your potential travel companion better prior to exchanging personal info
  3. If you feel uncomfortable reaching out to a fellow traveler, you can request them to verify their identity through Stripe, a third-party.
  4. Once you have found the right travel companion and feel comfortable, you may want to exchange personal info ( like; phone numbers and personal emails.)
  5. Always remember, When making your trip arrangements with a member, make sure to leave the traveler partner’s/group’s information with a family member, and for further security, post your plans on our website. For example, who are you traveling with? Where are you meeting up? What travel plans have you both agreed on?  And, also email this info to yourself, as an added backup.

As a paid member, you have up to 7 days to request a refund ($29.95), but if you requested an ID check, then the refund will be less the cost of ID check ($17.95).  Thus, the total refund will be for $12.00.
