Creating the account on TripAways
The profile of the guest and the owner on TripAways is an extended version of a business card that allows other users to get all the information about the owner of the account, and make sure that he or she is a real person. That’s why one needs to create an account before booking or renting out an apartment.
The more information is available in the profile, the more trustful and credible is the user in the system. We recommend following these simple rules:
- Indicate your real name and surname in English in order to make them clear for people from all over the world.
- Upload a portrait photo with the clear image of the face. The users will be able to see their potential host or guest.
- Provide various means of communication, including messengers, phone numbers and email. Users of TripAways will always choose a person with several contacts.
- Write a couple of sentences about yourself, your hobbies, favorite things, and something that makes you annoyed. Let other users know something about you.
Use only real information in the profile. Please note that any misleading information will result in additional problems during the booking, checking-in or staying.
The process of account creation on TripAways is not really complex, and won’t take more than 10 minutes. Please note that the profile or account is your representation on the website, and it serves as your virtual identity.
The account in the system can be shown in several languages. You can use your mother language, and the system will offer an automated translation. We recommend using the English version of your name and surname and make sure that they correspond with your documents.
The part of the information is obligatory, while the rest is clearly optional. We kindly ask you to provide as much information as possible in order to make things clear for other users.
After completing the account, you can start the process of communication with other users. In order to add accommodation and send booking requests, you need to verify your account.
