A wanderguide is an online travel guide created by a local, or someone who knows a certain place pretty well, that consists of various recommendations for things to do, see, eat etc. at the destination.
The wanderguide basically allows you to create a super quick online guidebook with all your recommendations in one place and easily share it with your friends, other travelers or even your Airbnb guests.
For instance, I used to live in Milan and I know the city pretty well. When my friends go to Italy, they usually ask me for some advice so I used to write a list of things to do and see in Milan and send it to them.
After I created my Milan wanderguide, it’s way easier to share my favourite things in Milan with my friends. I basically just send them a link.
Does a wanderguide have to be about a specific place only?
Not necessarily. It’s really up to you how you structure your wanderguide and what you include in it.
Also, your wanderguide could focus on a specific topic or theme. For example, I have created a pretty generic wanderguide about my hometown Reykjavik, but I also did a different one that’s focused on where to get breakfast in Reykjavik.
Bottom line, your wanderguide is a carte blanche that you can play around with as you please. Create a wanderguide on your neighbourhood, your city, your country, your favourite ice cream shops or a hiking itinerary. Anything’s possible!

Why should you use the wanderguide for sharing travel recommendations?
1. It’s easy
Creating a wanderguide is essentially a quick and easy task. After it’s ready, you can send the link to anyone who’s interested in your travel advice.
Plus, you can add more stuff to your wanderguide or update it as you please anytime, which allows you to share recommendations that are relevant and fresh.
2. You can actually earn some cash!
Hey, did you know that if you include bookable tours from Travelade on your wanderguide, you get a 7% commission every time someone books it? How cool is that?
3. The wanderguide makes Airbnb hosting less of a hassle
If you’re an Airbnb host, you probably know that guests really appreciate to get tips and travel recommendation first hand from the host.
However, it’s insanely time consuming for Airbnb hosts to chat with every guest and tell them about where to go and what to do at the destination. Guests often forget to write these recommendations down anyway.
Sharing a link with your Airbnb guests with a wanderguide that contains all your recommendations for restaurants, tours and highlights in the area is just brilliant. It saves you time and it’s super beneficial for your guests.
4. It’s your digital travel journal
My latest wanderguide was on Lisbon. I visited the city in January, had a great time and ate at numerous superb restaurants. The wanderguide I created is a compilation of nice places I visited, some boutiques, bars, restaurants, museums etc.
When I visit the city again (which I will do some day), I’ll have everything I did during the last trip in one place. Very convenient!
