Somewhat okay app. 1) The app says it gives a free 7 days trail which is possible only when you invite your friends to sign up and they have to verify their phone number!!! This is too much of marketing technique :/ 2) I can contact other travelers only with premium features. Also the app is quite slow and has minor bugs that has to be fixed. 3) Most important is that the search option is not working properly. I live in Lausanne, Switzerland and could not find this city in the search bar.

Hi Bhushan, thank you so much for your review. You can start trips, create a local listing to help travelers, like trips, and even get a verification badge for free. Some features are premium. Premium subscribers love GAFFL. They help GAFFL sustain as a business and make GAFFL better. We also added Lausanne for you! You can find it now. : )

One of the best services to find travel companions. GAFFL gives me opportunity to find real friends worldwide; offers me to visit places in a cost-efficient manner by sharing resource with people having similar travel itinerary. I can meet local peoples who are willing to guide during my travel or find a buddy for my interstate travels. It’s good to see that GAFFL is now offering app-based support. But some of the app features need improvements. Like navigating to the web while accessing “Settings” or “Help & Feedback” from the app is slightly inconvenient. But overall, it’s a five-star experience.

Redundant, useless, rip off, no support. Nice concept, but needs a massive overhaul. Most people needing it won't want to fork out cash to find a travel mate, and you can't do anything without paying. No function to report people (which you'll need because the only people that seem to pay are there to spam or scam you), and no way to contact support. Everything it offers you can already do through Facebook and Gumtree for free, with a much bigger audience.
