Ensuite Room Bookings

If you've booked a private room, you can now upgrade to an ensuite with private bathroom for an additional $200. Email us at hello@wifitribe.co to reserve your ensuite room.

Free Gap Week

This year, we're running several chapters consecutively – including Colombia, Bali, and South Africa. 

If you book TWO chapters in a row, you'll get the gap week between for FREE!

If you book just one chapter, you can extend your stay by adding on the week before or after the chapter at the following rate:

Tier 1:  $40/night

Tier 2: $45/night

Experience Guarantee (New Member Downgrade Possibility) 

New members now have the opportunity to begin with a higher chapter plan, and decide up to 2 weeks after their first chapter if they want to downgrade back to a lower plan. In this case, we refund the additional deposits (less the difference in chapter price.) This gives the opportunity to gain the best pricing benefits up front – without the risk. See additional details in FAQ below.
