Why should I use eXpertLocal?

                    eXpertLocal is for anyone who wants to discover interesting new things within a city, uncover the latest places before the hoards or who simply wants to enjoy their city or town through the eyes of a fellow local. You can choose experiences, underground tours and things to do via interests, location and even subculture.                    

Is eXpertLocal in my area?

                    eXpertLocal is powered by every day people like you, so availability can vary based on what people decide to list. If you don't see any eXpertLocal experiences listed for your area, why not create and share your own experience?                    

What's not allowed on eXpertLocal?

                    We want to foster a community where everyone feels welcome and can find something they can be included in. We reserve the right to review and take down any material that may be deemed offensive by other members. The kinds of things that are not permitted on eXpertLocal includes but is not limited to anything we deem sexist, homophobic or could promote a culture of racism, religious intolerance, unsafe or illegal acts or acts that involve harm to another person or living creature.

If you have seen something you think breaches the eXpertLocal guidelines, please let us know via support@expertlocal.com                    

What kinds of experiences do you offer?

                    You can choose to offer or participate in a standard Paid Experience or a Free of Charge experience. The difference between the two is simply a Paid Experience has a ticket price that must be paid to participate and a Free of Charge experience is completely without charge, so no money changes hands. The person who runs the tour gets to choose if an experience is Free of Charge or a Paid Experience.

Who would use a Free of Charge experience?

                    eXpertLocal offer the Free of Charge experience option for community groups, not for profits and businesses who want to promote their experiences and tours via eXpertLocal as a way of reaching another audience. It is also designed so that individual members of eXpertLocal who want to use experiences as a way to meet people, or to have the only charge associated with an activity be set by the venue chosen (such as a cover charge at a live music venue or the admission to the zoo) as opposed to the person who wants to run the tour. We know that some of our members want to focus on making friends, building community and/or promoting fun local things as opposed to making money from eXpertLocal, so we offer Free of Charge experiences as a way to help with that!                    

How does eXpertLocal make money?

                    eXpertLocal charges a small service fee of 15% on every confirmed booking. This is used to cover our labour and operating costs, transaction fees with our secure payment gateway, and offering great customer service.
