What is the Ask a Nomad App?

This information is for residents of Helpdesk Global only.

Ask A Nomad is a FREE Q&A app for travellers to get answers from locals who know.

It is a place to ask your own travel questions or help others by sharing insights and local advice from your trips.

It works by recommending questions in real-time to other members who are nearby or have knowledge of a place and likely to know about the topic of interest.

While on the road, the Ask a Nomad iPad App* will carry your travel questions & answers with you, even when offline.
