Terms and Conditions

Off-way has developed a social traveling platform accessible through the website at and mobile application, designed to connect travelers with similar travel ideas and find ideal travel companions, in order to enable sharing of travel experiences and related costs.

Registration Conditions

The use of the service, reserved for adults, is subject to the communication of data necessary for the opening of a dedicated Account, as well as acceptance of the privacy policy. The user remains the sole subject responsible for verifying the accuracy of the data entered, for which he assumes full responsibility.

Non-commercial and Non-business purpose of the Platform

The User agrees to use the Platform solely to find new Travel Companions, on a non-business and non-commercial basis. As an Organizer, the User undertakes not to use the Platform for commercial purposes and not to profit from it, by requesting compensation from other Users. Off-Way reserves the right to suspend the Account if it deems that the User intends to generate a profit on the Platform.

Use of Services

Proposal of a Trip

All Users registered on the Platform can post a Travel Announcement in order to search for compatible Travel Companions to travel with. The content of the announcement is inserted for the User's use and care and he maintains responsibility for the content provided.

The Announcement will be published on the Platform and therefore visible to Users and all visitors, even non-users, who perform a search on the Platform and/or on Off-Way's social channels. Specifically, to complete the publication of the Travel Announcement, the User can choose:

  • Title of the Trip
  • Destination
  • Type of Travel
  • Date of Departure and Return
  • Estimated Budget
  • Expected Age Range of other Users who will participate (these are the requirements)
  • Accommodations
  • Brief Description of their Travel Idea

The User is aware that the publication of the Travel Announcement is not automatic but subject to approval by Off-Way. The User may make changes to the Travel Announcement until the departure date. Any changes will be notified to the other participants.

Off-Way reserves the unquestionable right not to authorize the publication of travel announcements or advertisements if they contain offensive texts and/or images of the image and/or reputation of natural and/or legal persons, defamatory, blasphemous or have a racist character or exalt the inferiority and/or superiority of a race, people, culture compared to others, violate the rights of minorities, manifest an apologetic character for crimes against humanity, incite hatred and/or violence, have a pornographic or pedo-pornographic character, make threats or constitute harassment, convey information or messages that give instructions on how to carry out illegal activities or incite the commission of illegal activities or that may otherwise cause harm to third parties, incite dangerous behaviors and risks of emulation by minors or the use of drugs or mistreatment of animals, are based on messages and/or images that damage the interests of minors and are in any case unsuitable for minors under eighteen years of age.

Participation in a Trip

By logging in to the Platform with their credentials, the User will see the list of Travel Announcements of other Users in the Travel Showcase, decorated with specific information inserted by the User who published the announcement, information about the Participants in the Trip and the level of Compatibility with the Trip and the Travel Group.

By clicking on the image of each Travel Announcement, the User can see the detailed information about the Trip inserted by the Organizer User, consult the list of Participants in the Trip, and access individual Profiles. If interested, the User can request to join the travel chat ("JOIN CHAT") to ask for more details from the Organizer and the group of participants, collaborate on the organization of the Trip, and eventually confirm their participation. In order to join, the User will be asked to write a brief message that will only be visible to the Trip Organizer.

Participation in the travel chat is subject to availability of remaining spots, possession of age requirements defined by the Organizer who posted the Announcement, and evaluation by the Trip Organizer.

Only after being approved by the Organizer, the User will have the opportunity, using an instant messaging system, to chat with other Participants in the same Trip in order to share any subsequent updates or changes related to the organization.

Organization of a Trip

The organization of a Trip is the responsibility of Users who have joined it by accessing the Trip chat. The Organizer User is jointly responsible with other Users for organizing the Trip.

All Users participating in the same Trip can communicate via an instant messaging system to share all the details of the organization or through other personal means such as email, phone, or social media to which they are subscribed.

Within the chat, each User can decide to confirm their participation in the Trip. From this moment, their status will change to PARTICIPANT and notification will be given to other participants.

The chat will be active until one week after the departure date of the Trip. After that, it will no longer be possible to exchange messages on it.

The Organizer of the Trip may at any time manage the participants in the Chat, removing any Users who are no longer interested or who violate these Terms and Conditions.

If the maximum number of participants in the Chat is reached, it will be up to the Organizer to evaluate the possible exclusion of Users who are no longer interested or who do not intend to confirm their participation in the Trip, in order to make new spots available to other interested Users.

The User is solely responsible for the messages exchanged and undertakes to maintain appropriate conduct aimed solely at organizing the trip.

Invitations and Social Sharing

Each User may invite other participants to the Trip they have organized or are part of as Followers or Participants, using the INVITE function, which will allow them to access a list of Users who are potentially more compatible with the Trip.

The User can view individual Profiles and choose whom to invite. If the invitation does not come from the Organizer of the Trip, the entry into the Trip chat of a new User who consents to participate in the Trip will still be subject to the evaluation of the Organizer.

In order to search for new travel companions, the User can also share the trip with friends who are not registered on the Platform through a link on social channels (Whatsapp, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram).

Abandonment of a Trip

Each User who is part of a Trip can leave the Trip Chat. The abandonment will be notified to all Users participating in the same Trip.

If the Organizer of the Trip decides to abandon the Trip Chat, the Trip will be automatically closed and all participants will be notified.

Off-Way cares about the reliability of its Users and the success of Trips organized through the Platform and makes every effort towards achieving the highest possible level of trust.

Therefore, each individual User, if they decide to abandon a Trip, is requested to promptly communicate it to the other participants and the Organizer.

Feedback and Reports

Off-Way encourages the User to leave feedback on a Trip they have participated in and on the other participants with whom they shared the Trip.

Each User present in the Chat of a Trip is required, from the return date onwards, to confirm their participation.

If the user confirms their participation, they will be encouraged to confirm the participation of other Users and to provide feedback:

  • on the Trip in general, consisting of a numerical evaluation and a note, visible only to the Platform Administrators
  • on each participating User, expressed as a numerical rating of their commitment demonstrated in organizing the Trip (ORGANIZATION) and their behavior during the Trip (ON TRIP)
  • The average of the feedback provided by other Users will be visible on each User's Profile.

DRBM Ltd is not obliged to verify, either before or after, the comments or feedback provided. If a User believes that the Feedback may be offensive to themselves or the Community, they are requested to immediately notify Off-Way by writing to customer care. Each User can also report another User, if they believe that their behavior violates these General Conditions or if they have behaved in an incorrect or offensive manner, or if they are trying to obtain economic profit, providing a reason for the report through the appropriate function present on each Profile.

Off-Way reserves the right to carry out the appropriate checks and actions by considering the opportunity of any measures that may include, depending on the cases and at Off-Way's exclusive discretion, the suspension and/or cancellation of the reported User.

Compatibility Calculation

Compatibility means the degree of affinity of a User with a Trip and the Group of Users who participate in it with the aim of increasing the success rate of travel groups.

The Compatibility percentage is calculated in real-time through a proprietary machine learning algorithm based on the profiling variables, socio-demographic data, behavioral data, and preferences of the users themselves. Compatibility defines how compatible a single user is with the type of Travel in question and with the group they belong to.

Contents published on or through the Platform

Contents from Users

The contents provided by the User during registration are used to allow other Users to know the characteristics of their potential Travel companions and to allow the calculation of Compatibility between Users and Trips, so that Users can organize their own Trip with people who share the same interests (passions, culture, sports, etc.) or are more compatible in terms of Travel style, living or being in the same location, having the same age, etc..

Users are responsible for their own content and third-party content shared on the Platform, declare to have fully and legitimately all rights related to such Content, and release Off-Way from any responsibility in relation to the illicit dissemination of third-party content that may be covered by copyright, indemnifying Off-Way from any possible request for compensation for damages deriving from unauthorized use of data or content, or from the use of the Platform in a manner contrary to the law.
