Why become a Local Expert?

The Trip101 Local Expert Programme aims to bring together a group of locals passionate about his/her city to contribute to our articles. Through the programme, Local Experts can share tips, photos, and videos and even point out inaccurate information in articles about their residing city to ensure that only helpful content gets shared with our readers!

Are you an expert in your city? Think you can share helpful content that only the locals know? Join our Local Expert Programme today to create unique experiences for travelers worldwide!
