What people are saying…
I have been following Nomadic Matt for several years now, so joining the community is almost like a dream come true! It’s so cool to have weekly interactions with him and his team in the Facebook group and access to exclusive content. I also enjoy connecting with other members, because it’s nice to be surrounded by like-minded travelers, especially during the pandemic, as we reminisce on past travel adventures and share travel goals together. These are friends I’ll definitely meet in the future!
Finding Nomadic Matt and his travel community during the pandemic has been a silver lining during an otherwise very difficult time. Thanks to all of the benefits I received when I signed up, I have so many more resources to help me plan my future trips. I love how new content is added weekly! Plus, I feel like I’ve found and ‘unlocked’ a true community of like-minded people. I’ve made connections both online and in the real world. I’m so thankful I found Nomadic Matt and joined his travel community!
Becoming a member opens up a whole new world of adventure, support, and good friends for anyone who loves travel. I especially enjoy the new video library with all the live, interactive presentations by knowledgeable travelers, bloggers, and authors. In all honesty, my membership during the pandemic has been a virtual lifesaver for me.
Q: Which payment methods and credit cards do you accept?
A: You can pay by any major credit card.
Q: Is my payment secure?
A: Yes, we take your security very seriously. The signup page (and the entire site) is encrypted with 128-bit SSL, meaning that any information you submit is secure. We never store your credit card number or your security code (CVV code). We only use a payment “token” (an order number generated by the payment processor) that allows us to complete the payment.
Q: What if I change my mind and want my money back?
A: You can ask for your money back up to 7 days after the transaction.
Q: Is this a recurring subscription?
A: Yes, you will be billed each month (if you choose the monthly subscription) or each year (if you choose the yearly subscription). You can cancel at any time, and if you cancel you retain full access to all content for the entire paid-for period.
Q: Will you be doing any special events or meet-ups for supporters in the future?
A: Yes! I love doing meet-ups and will continue to do it in the future.
Q: What will the money be used for?
A: The money is used to serve you quality travel content. This website takes a village to run. Four of us work on it full time plus we have three part-time employees. Additionally, there’s the cost of website hosting, running events, design, social media, security, meet-ups, leading our courses, developing books and resources, hands-on travel research, and so much more! Your subscription fees are used to pay for all that so we can keep producing the content that helps you travel better and hosting events that help you meet and make friends with like-minded travelers!
