FAQ

My Places

What is My Places?

My Places is your personal travel catalog. This is where you list destinations, hotels, restaurants, shops, museums, and any other points of interest that you have been to and loved around the world. My Places helps you remember where you’ve been and what you’ve done, and allows you to easily share your favorite places and experiences with others.

Who can see what I publish in My Places?

If your account is public, all AmiGo users can view what you publish in My Places. If your account is private, only your approved followers can access what you publish in My Places.

A destination is showing up in My Places that I haven’t been to. Why is that?

If you completed the Travel History import, AmiGo pulled the location data from the photos in your camera roll. If you have any saved photos that friends sent you while they were traveling, this could have caused the error. Simply delete the destination from My Places if you do not want it to display on your profile.

Why does the AmiGo database only have certain cities in it?

AmiGo’s city database has been curated to include most of the top tourist destinations around the world. This has been done to keep the app as organized and user-friendly as possible. For example, our database has Miami, Florida, but it does not have Miami Beach, Florida. This way, users looking for recommendations in the greater Miami area will be able to find them all in one place. However, we are constantly adding to and improving our database, so users can submit new cities they would like to see included.

I submitted a new city to the AmiGo database and it was rejected. Why did this happen?

Most likely, the city you submitted is a part of a larger area that already exists in the database. For example, our database has Miami, Florida, but it does not have Miami Beach, Florida. This way, users looking for recommendations in the greater Miami area will be able to find them all in one place. We also have regions in our database, so a small city might be denied if it falls within a region such as the Hamptons or the South of France.

Why are some map markers blue and others gray?

The blue markers signify destinations that have at least one recommended place. The gray markers signify destinations that you have traveled to, but have not yet added any recommended places to.

Recommending

What type of place can I recommend?

You can recommend any point of interest as long as it has a location on Foursquare or Google Maps. This can include hotels, neighborhoods, restaurants, cafés, gyms, nail salons, spas, museums, parks, movie theaters, and more. Once you publish a recommendation, it will be added to My Places in the city within which it is located and will be visible to your followers.

What does MustGo mean?

MustGo is a filter that should be used for your absolute favorite places. By using this filter, you are identifying that a place is a must-visit in the city within which it is located.

Can I recommend a place without a photo?

Yes. If you do not want to add any of your own photos, AmiGo will publish your recommendation with images from other sources, such as Foursquare and Google.

Privacy

Will my information or photos be shared?

Absolutely not, we care about protecting your information and privacy. You choose to share what you want to share with your followers, and if your account is private, no one except the people you’ve allowed to follow you will see anything you publish. For more information, see our Privacy Policy.
