What to put in Subject when messaging a Workaway host

Workaway is a platform for travelers and makes traveling easier for thousands of people every year. If you want to know how to use it and why you need it, you’ll find all the answers in this full Workaway explanation.

Today, however, we’ll focus on the messaging part of the host. This is one of the most important steps you have to take on this site.

Who are the hosts?

They are the people who make it all possible. They provide housing and often food in exchange for a few hours of work per week. You don’t get paid, of course, but you get all the beauty of traveling for free. You only pay for transportation, but when you get there, you get to visit new cities, taste new incredible food, and meet wonderful people without the stress of paying for a hotel or renting a house.

On Workaway, you choose some hosts, I’ll say at least 5, that you like the most and then you create the perfect message to present yourself.

And there you go. When you click on “Contact”, Workaway will take you to a page where you have to fill in these fields:

  • Subject
  • Message body
  • Arrival/Departure

Want to travel and be financially free at the same time?

Workaway – What to put in the subject line

There are many things you can put in the subject line of a message to a host, but I think it’s better to keep it short and to the point.
You can write the month you plan to arrive in the country of your choice. So something like “Month Availability“, that way the host will know right away if he has a place for you or not.

Another, better way to introduce yourself would be to write in the subject line how you would like to help. Hosts often need help with gardening, babysitting, cooking, or housekeeping. So you could say something like “help with x“.

I have written to many Workaway hosts, and for those who have given me positive feedback, the message has looked like this

Subject: Help on the farm in October
Message:
“Hello there!
We are “your names”. We would like to help with “task they need help with”. We have experience with “Explain why you’ll be able to help them”. Our hobbies are “talk about yourself”.
We hope to hear from you, have a nice day!

In the Arrival/Departure boxes, enter the months and days if you know them, if not you can check the “I am flexible on these dates” box.

And you are done!

It’s not difficult at all, just remember to write to as many hosts as you can so that you have a higher percentage of getting a positive response back. Have a great time in your new adventure and for any questions, check this post!
