Thank You For Considering Becoming A Politrip 2020 Host

Without hosts providing supporter housing for our Politrippers we would not be able to run our trips and provide our volunteers with this once in a lifetime opportunity. But more than that, becoming a host is a great way for you to learn about your Politripper’s community and culture, create lasting bonds and contribute to political activism on crucial elections in your area.

Easy Access

Hear From Our Hosts

To help give you a better understanding of what it is like being a Politrip host here is what some of our previous hosts had to say about their experience

natalie politrip review

Hosting Politrip volunteers was a real treat. We would definitely do it again. We learned so much about Britain from them, and we so appreciated their helping to turn Orange County blue. Our two groups during Summer and Autumn were enthusiastic and interested, but undemanding. A terrific experience

ross politrip review

Hosting Rupert during his time in Iowa last summer was a pleasure. I found it a great way to help support the campaign in a different way and I felt like I was making a real difference. Rupert was a lovely house guest, he fitted into day to day life very quickly and I feel I have made a great friend. Hosting a Politrip volunteer has given me the confidence to provide further supporter housing in the future
