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.
Quickly add a trip, with beginning and end date and your destination.

We work with a number of different pub crawls that offer discounted prices as we know how much backpackers like to party.
Enjoy cheap food? So do we. Make sure you’re switched on and know where to eat when arriving in a new city.
Did you know websites charge 10-20% commission per booking? Use Backpackr to book directly with hostels and pay less.
Don’t pay full price for tours. We’ve partnered with a number of reputable companies to bring you the best offers.
A number of bars & clubs have signed up to bring you cheaper drinks when you show Backpackr. Cheers!
As backpackers ourselves we know that free is our favourite word. We’ll make sure to notify you of all the free events & offers nearby.
