We take professionalism very seriously, and should a guide or traveller suggest that transactions be done without the use of MeGuideU.com, we bear no responsibilities in any transactions and disputes that occur. We encourage all users to report errant guides or travellers to us.

If your guide does not show up in 30 minutes, you are allowed to take this as a “no show” whereby you will receive a full refund.
However we advise travelers to try and contact the guide, and we also advise travelers to re-arrange the timings with the guides so that the guide job can still be carried out. In the event the guide is a no show and remains un-contactable, travelers should log into their profile page and click on “no show” for that particular job.

MeGuideU doesn’t charge the traveler a cent! However in cases such as late cancellation, we will administer a fee charged to your booking down payment.
