Booking and Payment

Here’s some more info on what to expect about partnering with Lokal

How do travelers pay?

There are two ways we facilitate payments:

  1. Traveler pays Lokal in full – we can use our online payment system to collect the full booking price from travelers. Then we will arrange to send you your net rate through a wire transfer, PayPal or credit card payment.
  2. Traveler pays deposit to Lokal – we can collect a deposit from travelers (equal to our commission) and then have the traveler pay you your net rate in-person. 

How does the booking process work?

  1. Travelers will find your experiences on our site and be able to contact you directly to ask questions and check availability.
  2. You’ll receive an email when a traveler sends a request so you can provide more info and confirm details.
  3. If everything looks good, Lokal will collect payment and connect you directly to the traveler so you can communicate and prepare for the trip!

Can you help with promotions?

Yes! When you are approved as a Lokal provider and complete your first experience profile, we’ll send an announcement in our email newsletter and on social media to our global traveler community! Thousands of travelers will learn about your work and the experiences that you offer. 

We can also help to connect you to travel bloggers, writers and other influencers who can help to share your story.
