Discover travel buddies and connect with other like-minded travellers across the globe.

Travel the world while meeting backpackers who want to see and do the same things as you do. Find others travelling to the same destination, collect virtual stamps and share photos with friends as you go!

Find a travel buddy

Whether you're travelling solo or in a group, Backpackr is a great way to meet nearby travellers. Browse through numerous profiles and message the people you want to meet. Grab a beer, or see the sites the city has to offer, it's up to you. The opportunities are endless.

In the Common Room, anything goes. Ask travellers what the best sites to see are, the best bar to drink in, or even organise meet-ups. The 'nearby' tab allows you to see what's going on around you whereas the 'worldwide' tab is a more universal way of finding out information from around the world.

A Backpacker Community

Online reviews can often be slightly skewed so why not get the advice of people who are there right now? The possibilites are endless.

The Common Room

Search for nearby posts or a specific country for keywords or hashtags that match your travel plans.

Meet People To Travel With

Enter a date and city and Backpackr will show you all the travellers going there at the same time. The results will show you their interests and if they match yours you can plan to meet or travel together. This feature can be a handy aid in helping to eliminate the fear of travelling alone.

Backpackr will also send you push notifications everytime someone new is en route to your destination.
