Alexandra B. DanieliHead of Business Development, Offbeat Guides

Offbeat Guides create personalized, up-to-date travel guides that cover over 30,000 travel destinations, using a combination of search technology and curation by both amateur and professional travel experts. Our guides scour the web to find the best, most up-to-date information about your destination.
You can personalize the information you want based on your travel dates, preferences, and destination. The guides come with local maps, festivals and events going on while you're there, exchange rates, key phrases in the city's language, weather forecasts and more.

Travelers need reliable, accurate, and immediate information when planning a trip. Standard guidebooks are often 12 to 18 months out of date as soon as they hit the stores. Our content is the most up-to-date because we have an enormous technology base of spiders and crawlers that find the best information out on the internet, and combine it with information from established authors and thousands of locals who are always updating the information about where they live.
We also believe strongly in Creative Commons, in which users can share, create and build information that is available for mixing and remixing into unique new applications.
As well as Creative Commons licensed information, we also use proprietary content and professional authors, which makes for accurate and authoritative information in our guides. With Offbeat Guides, you can get your guide in electronic format that you print yourself, or we can create and ship you a printed guide just in time for your trip, with all the latest information packed inside.
Frequently Asked Questions
How many days does it take for the guide to arrive?
You should receive your guide two to three days before your trip. If you want it sooner, however, there is a link with the option ‘send to the printer now.’

What are the dimensions of the guide book?
The printed guides measure 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches, which makes them very portable! The PDFs are A4, slightly smaller than a normal 8 1/2 x 11 inch piece of paper.

How many pages do the guide books have?
The number of pages in a guide depends on the destination. Well traveled cities tend to be larger, while smaller, more obscure destinations tend to be shorter. On average, guidebooks are 100 to 150 pages.

How up-to-date is the information in your guides?
The information is up-to-the-minute and is constantly being updated.

What should I put in the "where are you staying" step?
You can either enter your hotel name or the address of where you’re staying. By giving us this information, we can generate maps that are centered around your precise location.

What if I don't know where I'm staying?
This is an optional step so you can skip it and we will generate general, citywide maps for you.
