YouTrip, Singapore’s leading multi-currency mobile wallet today launches a partnership with Withlocals, bringing online experiences to help curb pent up travel demand as the COVID-19 travel restrictions ensue. Withlocals is a travel marketplace based in Eindhoven, the Netherlands that connects travellers to local hosts through unique online experiences during this pandemic.
YouTrip has experienced a strong desire to travel among its community of users, many of whom had their travel plans this year deferred or cancelled. This partnership hopes to bring back the spirit and some parts of the travel experience to Singaporeans through live hosted tours online.
When the pandemic hit, Withlocals brought their experiences online to cater to the global travel ban. Similar to offline experiences, travellers can take private or group tours and activities hosted by local hosts through video conferencing in the comforts of their own homes.
Enjoy a City Like a Local
With over 100 experiences from 50 destinations to choose from, travellers can pick unique and curated experiences from top destinations like Amsterdam, Rome, and Athens. Guided by passionate local hosts, travellers can expect online experiences in the form of street-walking tours, cooking classes, mythical storytelling, or just an exchange of local cultures. Each online experience can cater to group sizes of 1 to 14 participants, and the price starts from €22 onwards (~S$34) for a 1 to 2 hours session.
From 6 June 2020 onwards, YouTrip users can enjoy a 10% discount on all online and offline experiences when they make a Withlocals booking with their YouTrip card. More information will be announced during the YouTrip x Withlocals online live event.
Keeping The Travel Spirit Alive
To mark the launch of the partnership, YouTrip and Withlocals will be a launching a free for all live event on 6 June for attendees to experience virtual travel from Withlocals. During this interactive session, attendees can expect to experience the culture of Berlin, Pompeii and Amsterdam through local hosts of each city.
