The Couchsurfing community is a treasure trove of people who understand the challenges of traveling and are passionate about their hometown – who better to ask for advice? From transportation tips to the best place to buy tickets, you’ll soon be able to find advice easily on Couchsurfing.
The concept of Local Advice is simple: ask a question, get an answer. We’ve included several features to ensure you receive the most accurate and up-to-date Advice as quickly as possible:
Search for Advice
Don’t wait for answers if someone else has already asked it. You’ll now be able to easily search the Local Advice page for questions with great answers.
See a question you’re curious about? Simply follow that question to receive updates as locals respond and give their own advice.
You’ll be able to write more helpful responses with the ability to tag a location, such as a restaurant or a landmark, to your response. Other members can easily click to find it on Google Maps.
Comment on Responses
Have something to add to someone else’s response? Now, you’ll be able to comment on their response to add your own related advice, or ask a follow-up question.
When you find a particularly good response, help others easily find the same great advice by upvoting it. With constant feedback from both travelers and locals, you can trust that the advice you are receiving is up-to-date and accurate.
Not only will you be able to receive advice for your next travel destination, you could learn something new about your own hometown. If you see another question you know the answer to, pay it forward and help your fellow Couchsurfer out with some Advice!
