Get Paid

Making extra money doing what you love

Detour Guide’s mission is to foster an innovative and sustainable travel industry. And a big part of that is ensuring hosts get paid in a timely and transparent way.

Happy Guest, Happy Host

When guests are happy, our hosts are happy, and that makes the Detour Guide team super happy. After a booking is completed, guests and hosts will receive an invitation to review each other. We use this to monitor the health of the platform, and gives us an opportunity to improve the booking experience for guests and hosts.

Platform fee & Transparency

Detour Guide is committed to transparency for guests and hosts. All bookings incur a 15% booking fee which goes towards maintaining the platform, adding new features, and getting maximum exposure for all of the fantastic detours on our platform. Check out our terms of service for details on our practices. If you have any questions, be sure to contact us.

Payout method

When a host’s first booking is received, the Detour Guide payments department will reach out to setup bank transfer information. Payouts are transferred in the currency they were received, and are initiated twenty-four hours after a successful detour is completed. Payouts can typically take anywhere from 2-5 business days with most banks. Please be aware that the length of time required to transfer payouts will depend upon factors that may include Bank holidays, Weekends, and the currencies that are involved in the transaction
