Become a Local Expert

Are you an experienced local guide? Are you passionate about and knowledgeable about your region?
Do you like to meet new people and show them unique places? Do you have a rental and experience to share?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you might be the right fit for the Holidays Points network.

At Holidays Points, our job is to market your tours, rentals, and activities to travelers looking for guides in your part of the world. We have a simple online reservation system that helps you manage traveler requests, and we handle all travel payments so you can spend your time focusing on guiding rather than administration.

Holidays Points clients are travelers who appreciate the flexible nature of a private and personalized tour. They want to see new places in the company of a local expert who can offer more personal attention and the kind of uniquely local experiences that they won’t find on a large group tour. So be creative and offer a tour that reflects your passions and interests!

Once you are accepted as a Holidays Points tourist guide, your obligations are as follows:

  • to personally deliver the visits you have agreed to make in a friendly and professional manner
  • to respond quickly (within 24 hours) and professionally to customer inquiries and reservation requests
  • to keep your availability and your account up to date

In return, Holidays Points provides:

  • Tools & Training: All the tools you need to build a professional web presence
  • help you design great tour offerings.
  • Easy administration: We process all customer payments quickly through our credit card processing system. Our sophisticated calendar system allows you to control the availability of your work.
  • Marketing: Thanks to our multiple online marketing channels (social, paid advertising and editorial), we make it easy for travelers to find your tours.
  • Security: Our customer cancellation policy means you’re protected in the event of late cancellation or no-show by customers.
  • Support: Attentive and responsive customer support and guide services.

Holidays Points does not charge any upfront or ongoing fees - only a percentage of actual tour bookings.

To apply you must agree to our terms and conditions and confirm that you are legally able to give tours in your jurisdiction. Then all we need to start processing your request are your contact details, description of any visits you plan to give, and your trip advisor account.

Your privacy is important to us. Your email address will only be used for Holidays Points activities, tours, and rentals, and will not be rented, sold, or otherwise distributed. See our privacy policy.
