Contact a Community

848 Communities in 117 Countries as of April 12, 2023!

Need help? Broken down? Just want to meet some local people and find out about the area?

Here's your chance to contact travellers currently at home who WANT to help other travellers!

Important: Please remember that Community members are private individuals and receive no payment whatsoever for helping you out. They do it simply because they're nice people! Also please remember that Communities may only have one member.

Common courtesy goes a long way - you are writing a letter to someone you've never met and asking them for help - what would you be likely to respond to?

"tell me everything about your area."


"Hi, I'm Joe Bloggs on a rtw trip - web site is at - and I'm heading your way. I have a couple of questions I hope you can help with. Is there a good shop where I can repair my shock as it's leaking oil? Is there a place you know that has cheap accommodation and I can work on the bike safely? Thanks, looking forward to meeting up with you!"

If you don't receive a response they may be on the road, or you have asked a question that is unclear, or simply too big! Keep your questions simple and to the point, and you are more likely to get an answer.

Select the Community you want to Contact in the list below, fill in your name, e-mail address and your question at the bottom of the page, and click "CONTACT A COMMUNITY".

Sorry, the Community listings are currently closed

We have jast moved the entire website to a new server, and the mailing list system is completely different. So, we have a very significant rebuild of the old system to the new system, and while we expected it could take a couple or three weeks, it's taking much longer. With any luck the Community lists will be back soon.

In an emergency, write me, Grant, directly, and I can write to the Community members directly for you. Be sure to tell me which Community you want to contact - basically, roughly where / what area.

Thanks for your patience while we work through the massive task of moving and adjusting / editing 250,000 files, plus massive databases!
