The Tribe has spoken. It is done.
Fellow WiFi Tribers kept saying they’d love to stay longer on chapters. Four weeks is too short to stay in some of our favourite destinations with some of our favourite humans!
So, we decided to put it up for a vote and see how many of us in the Tribe were actually interested in extended stays. We asked everyone to share their travel desires in our 2021 survey – and 76.6% of the Tribe asked for Chapters to last longer than four weeks!
There’s no arguing with numbers. That’s why we have decided to offer six-week Chapters beginning in 2021. Like most of our big decisions, this shift was created by the community.
Extended Stays with the Tribe!
What can we say? The Tribe is a bunch of trendsetters. While we’ve all been asking for longer stays in certain destinations, and setting up shop before and after Chapters for longer stays, “slow travel” has been all the rage on travel sites and magazines. While extending Chapters by two weeks isn’t exactly the slowest of travel, it does emphasize the importance of taking more time to explore locations – and it will make a big difference in how we all, as Tribe members, get to experience our favourite destinations.
Why the Tribe Wants Six-Week Chapters
- We’ll form even stronger bonds with the extra two weeks together – here’s to all of you who’ve said “I just wish we had more time together” at the end of every Chapter
- We’ll get more productive work in, as we’ll be settled in our new homes for longer
- We’ll enjoy a slower pace and feel less rushed to do everything in just four weeks
- We’ll get to know a city and its country more and feel like we’re really living there
- We can spend a weekend at “home” without that fear of missing out on those must-do trips, as there are more weekends to explore the destination
Six-week Chapters will be set up in select locations alongside our four-week Chapters. We can’t wait to bring these back in 2021!
Check out the FAQs below for more information.
What is the pricing for six-week Chapters?
Pricing will continue to follow the current 4 week Chapter format with the additional 2 weeks being pro-rated on top of it. Take the 4-week Chapter price according to your Chapter plan, tier, and desired room and multiply it by 1.5.
Can I join for only 4 weeks of a 6-week Chapter?
Our 6-week Chapters will be treated the same way as our current 4-week Chapters – meaning that we ask members to join for the duration of the Chapter. If you aren’t able to join us for the full time, and we still have space 2 weeks out, we may be able to make accommodations for 4-week stays on a case-by-case basis. However, for new members we do require you to join us for the full duration of your first Chapter!
Why did the team choose these particular locations for 6-week Chapters?
We thought long and hard about which chapters we’d love to stay longer on, and have selected the locations that have a great balance of liveability, amazing adventures and places to explore on the weekends, and generally have the kind of vibe that makes you want to settle in and stay longer to really soak in the experience of living there. The kind of liveable places with too many weekend trips to do in just 4 weeks where we’ve often heard Tribers say “I wish this chapter was longer”. See the 6 week chapter locations on our calendar.
Can I arrive at the accommodations early or stay later than the selected dates?
At this time we are only securing our accommodation for the dates selected, so there won’t be a gap week opportunity as there has been for back-to-back Chapters, unless there is another chapter in the same location right after.
Will there be 4-week Chapters in 2021 as well?
Yes, we’ll have a combination of 4-week and 6-week chapters in the coming year to offer a blend of slower travel with our normal pace!
Can I sign up for 2021 Chapters already?
You sure can! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot!
When will the rest of the 2021 calendar be released?
We’ll keep you posted – the 2021 calendar will be released as soon as we’ve decided on all the locations, and we’ll let you know by email or Slack when those will be coming out.
