What content will I get in the 2B LOCAL app?

The 2B LOCAL app provides you with authentic local tips about your next travel destination or about your hometown itself. You get reviews on restaurants, hotels, nightlife, nature or activities and even upcoming events from your friends and friends of friends, verified by the 2B LOCAL travel community. You also get inspiring travel content from established travel magazines and access to our “Local Portraits” – interviews with inspiring people from the world of arts and culture who share their favorite places in their hometown.

Can I save local tips / posts / events from other users?

Yes, to save a post, local tip or event, simply open its detailed view and click the “Bookmark” icon below the post. You can find all of your bookmarked posts behind the three vertical dots in the top right corner of your profile. Your saved posts can also be organized into personalized files.

Can I post an upcoming event on the 2B LOCAL app?

Yes, just like adding a new post, you can add an upcoming event in the future with more details like place, location, time, description and possibly a price. If the event is online, you can post a link to the specific online platform, e.g. zoom. You can also invite selected people to attend or publish the event within your 2B LOCAL network (Locals, Friends or Friends of Friends FOF).

What does „Local tip“ mean?

In the 2B LOCAL app, every user is a local somewhere, so every tip that you post in the app about your hometown will be a real “local tip”.

What does "Checks" mean?

A post can be “checked” by other users, which means that it has been verified as “real” and qualified content by the 2B LOCAL community. The more “Checks” a profile receives from other users in the 2B LOCAL community, the more trustworthy and authentic it is.

Can I share my 2B LOCAL tips with others or on social media?

Yes, you can share any post from you or other users within your 2B LOCAL network. You can also publish any post to your social media accounts or forward it to any user outside the 2B LOCAL app.

Are the posts I publish on my 2B LOCAL Account public?

When you post something on the 2B LOCAL app, your post will be visible to the public. However, you can limit the visibility and share the post only with your friends or friends of friends.

Why have you integrated affiliates & advertisements into the 2B LOCAL app?

Our intention is to keep the basic use of 2B LOCAL free for the user. We have integrated affiliates and advertising as a source of revenue. However, affiliates also complement the user journey by allowing the user to book hotels, flights and transportation directly from the app.

Can I also be interviewed for a Local Portrait on the 2B LOCAL app?

For our “Local Portraits” interviews, we are looking for interesting people from the world of arts and culture (e.g. musicians, artists, photographers, athletes, etc.) to reveal their favorite places in their hometown, such as the best local restaurants, cafes, bars, clubs, activities and events! So please send us a short application at and we will check if you fit our criteria.
