Planning an adventure? Whether it’s a six month world trip or a six week project closer to home, your friends and family will want to help you get there. With Patchwork you can show people the things they can help you fund – like tours, accommodation and vaccinations. And also the things they can do – like lending you a rucksack or helping you brush up on your Spanish.
Browse our many unique gap year and solo travel destinations and choose a readymade template to customise. Or create your own adventure wish list from scratch. With Patchwork you can invite friends and family to fund items, pay for much wanted experiences or contribute time and skills. A patchwork of images shows them the things you’d like them to fund, make or do. For example, you could include the option for people to contribute £30 towards accommodation, £5 for a street food lunch, lend you a backpack or make you a playlist for those long bus rides!
Patchwork is not tied to any travel agents and we don't hold your funds. Instead money goes directly into your PayPal account or your bank account via Stripe so you can book your trip when, where and how you like. It's free to sign up to Patchwork, we only make money when you receive yours - with a 3.6% commission on contributions you receive. You can compare partner fees here. If you have a promotion code to waive our fee, partner fees still apply.
With readymade templates for a huge range of different destinations and a gorgeous image gallery, it's easy to set up your travel fund with Patchwork. And the Pinterest-style layout and mobile friendly experience makes it easy and fun for friends to contribute, too.
