New Way For LGBT Tourists To Discover The Real Europe


You can become an LGBT guide!

The search is on for gay people who love to show their home city to visitors and want to earn money doing so.

Just as Airbnb has transformed the holiday accommodation market by allowing local people to link up with travellers looking for a place to stay, trip4real is providing a similar platform to let local people offer tailor-made tours and creative experiences for tourists all across Europe.

Travellers can make real connections with their hosts, discover local trends, and immerse themselves in the culture of their destinations. Whether it’s learning to make home-made pasta with a local chef in Rome, or sailing to Sitges from Barcelona with your own captain, trip4real makes it easy for locals to make money as guides, and for travellers to discover the best of a place at any price point.

Now the Gay European Tourism Association (GETA) has joined forces with trip4real to encourage gay people to sign up as guides to create and promote their own unique experiences to tempt travellers. It could be a gay person’s guide to the best parts of their city, or a tour of their city’s gay life.

Local guides can make up to 700 euros a month.

GETA encourages gay travellers to use trip4real as a portal to meet local LGBT people, and to discover new destinations.

Launched in 2013 in Barcelona, trip4real is now Europe’s premier peer-to-peer experiential travel website, with 40,000 users in 50 cities and 4,000 activities, from jet-skiing to mushroom-picking, to a night on the tiles with a local DJ. The site has since expanded to London, Lisbon, Rome, Paris and the Netherlands.

Carlos Kytka, the Gay European Tourism Association’s Executive Director, hailed the partnership as a great move forward for LGBT tourism in Europe:

“GETA’s key programme of promoting innovation in LGBT tourism is designed to encourage new ideas which give gay tourists the best possible holiday in Europe. Our new partnership with trip4real gives gay travellers the opportunity to discover the real culture of a city they are visiting, guided by local gay people. And it gives local gay people the chance to make good money, show off their city, and meet other gay people from around the world”.

Trip4real founder and CEO, Gloria Molins said:

“From the start we have had some amazing experiences designed by and for gay people which have been very popular and among the best in terms of quality. This new partnership with GETA will allow us to introduce trip4real to new travelers and offer a variety of trips and experiences throughout Europe”
