Your membership offline and online

A core belief: Bolt's community extends beyond each individual trip. Before and after adventures, we connect primarily through our online platform. This isn't social media; it's a place to intentionally foster bonds with your fellow travelers through member profiles, video hangouts, and online chats.

At the core of Bolt's community is our Discovery Process. Every traveler on each trip and every friendly face you see on our online platform has taken the time to talk to a current member. That's how we make sure we're all aligned around our mission and ethos.

It's something new, and we call it Community Travel.

Video Hangouts

In the months leading up to each trip, Bolt members hop on a video hangout to meet fellow travelers, as well as the Bolt guides who will lead their experience.

These calls are typically about an hour long, and serve as a great way to build the group dynamic, before anyone every steps foot on a plane.

By focusing on these initial connections prior to the start of the trip, we meet the first day as friends. Along with our Slack chat, video hangouts are an important way we connect members before and after trips.

Slack Chat and Profiles

Upon joining Bolt, every member creates a profile, and receives an invite to our online chat, powered by Slack.

This chat platform is broken down by trip. Meet the members you'll travel with, collaboratively ask questions, and organize shared accommodation, meals, and activities, both before and after the experience.

You'll also find individual channels for local regions, where Bolt members come together for adventures a bit closer to home. We're always trying to find more ways to bring our community closer together.
