If you’re a frequent traveler, then you will know that there are pros and cons to both traveling with others and traveling on your own. Venturing out into the unknown solo is an exciting experience like no other, but on the other hand, it is also great to share your special memories too.
If you’ve ever wished for the best of both worlds when on your travels, then you’re in luck. There is a brand new service called GAFFLl. Let’s find out more!
What is GAFFL?
GAFFL stands for ‘Get A Friend For Life’. It’s an online platform which helps travelers find, contact, and meet others who are planning to visit the same destinations at the same time. If you’re someone who doesn’t want to adventure alone, then GAFFL can provide you with a buddy whos are also looking to spend the day doing exactly what you want to be doing too
GAFFL aims to bring like-minded people together, giving them the opportunity to find a fellow traveler who is on the same mission as them. Instead of venturing out alone, why not see if there is anyone else who is planning the same trip as you? Having someone to share the experience with can make it that extra special.
How does it work?
Using GAFFL is pretty simple. Firstly you need to select the destination and the date in which you are planning to visit. Each selected destination will then give you a list of upcoming trips that have already been planned with the selection of people who will be joining.
From here you will then have a choice – to either request to join a trip or create a trip of your own which you can invite people too.
Once a trip is created, it is a private event. You will then be provided with an online space to chat, plan and discuss the details of the trip, including a meet-up point and specific timings of the day.
Is therֳe anything else I should know?
You can use GAFFL for all sorts of different trips. You can plan to take part in a group activity or excursion. Or you can simply meet and hangout to get to know each other. It could also be a way of saving money by purchasing group discounts for accommodation or travel. It’s up to you!
If you want to use GAFFL, it will cost you just $6.99 for 30 days. However, if you want to use GAFFL long term, then there is also an option for you to pay $20 for six months, or $30 for one year. Paying more for longer will definitely be the best option if you know you will be using it across the entirety of your travels.
GAFFL has ensured its users that all safety precautions have been taken. In order to use the site, you have to pass a number of verification steps. But to keep extra safe, make sure that you only communicate and meet users who have the following:
ONE. Have an email and social account which has been verified
TWO. Have an efficient profile picture
THREE. Have agreed to meet in a public space
What are you waiting for? No more hesitating on whether you want to travel alone or with friends, use GAFFL instead!
