Safety

Meeting in public places. No anonymous meetings. GPS. Payments. Ratings.

Meeting in public places:
For safety purposes, you and the traveler should always meet in public places.

No anonymous meetings:
When you sign up, you have to provide Hiphoster with certain information like Credit Card information and phone number. Hiphoster wants to make sure all accounts are safe and real. All travelers have provided their valid phone numbers, emails, country of residence, and credit card info as well. You and Hiphoster will always know whom you’re meeting.

GPS:
When you meet travelers, start the activity on the app and keep it running during your activities to ensure your safety through GPS data.

Payments:
You have to start the activity on the app to process the payment from the traveler. All payments are made through online banking, and you avoid the risk of handling cash.

Ratings:
Because locals rate travelers, and vice versa, you know if the person you’re meeting is cool and friendly. If a traveler has low rates, Hiphoster will review their activities. If it turns out that he violated Hiphoster’s terms and conditions, their use of the app will be limited or terminated.
