How does trip visibility work?

So that you feel safe, when creating a trip you can define which Amshapopo users will be able to see it. There are three types of visibility: "Public trip", "Visible to friends of friends" and "Visible to friends". You can define who your friends are, sending friend requests within the platform and, if you linked your facebook account, the platform will also take into account your friends who are in Amshapopo.

  • "Public Trip" → ALL Amshapopo users will be able to see and request this trip.
  • "Visible tp friends of friends" → your friends and their friends from Amshapopo and Facebook (if you signed up using Facebook) they will be able to see and request this trip.
  • "Visible to friends" → only your friends from Amshapopo and Facebook (if you signed up using Facebook) who use Amshapopo can see and request this trip.

Can I search for a particular trip?


Indeed! Using the travel search engine. On the main screen of the platform you will be able to enter "Origin", "Destination" and / or "Date" (all fields are optional) of the trip you are looking for. For example if you want to go a long weekend to anywhere in Bagamoyo, enter your place of origin and the date you want to leave. The search engine will be in charge of showing you all the trips that leave to that place on that date. In addition, it will show you trips related to alternative dates. You can also look for trips of drivers with free seats or people looking to take them.

You can do it through our rating system. For that, enter the platform within the My Trips section, after the trip, whether as a driver or passenger. A dialog box will appear in which you can rate positively or negatively, and add a comment to broaden your opinion about the experience. Press the button Rate and go, your rating and comments will be sent. Your rating will appear in the profile of the user you rated. Remember that if you are a driver you can rate all the passengers you took, and if you are a passenger you can rate the driver.

If you had problems with any of the passengers or the driver of the trip, write us an email, making it clear what happened. If we consider that it warrants further action and there is evidence of what happened, we can suspend that user for some time or indefinitely or take it up to authorities.
