The National Geographic Travel Community is an on-line community comprised of people who love National Geographic and are interested in travel. Members will be invited to share their opinions about a variety of topics. This on-line community will help us understand what is most important and interesting to you and provide a place for members to interact, share ideas, and give opinions. We are excited to hear what you have to say!

Not necessarily. We will do our best to identify studies that look like a match based on your profile, but our sponsoring clients may include criteria which is not part of our membership information. In these cases, the only way to know if you qualify will be to ask you up front in the survey. In cases when your household does not fit the criteria, we will try and notify you quickly and release you from completing any more of that survey.
On average, you will be sent a survey invitation about once or twice a month, at most. There will also be new QuickPolls posted to the site on occasion, as well as new discussion forums for you to participate in. You are welcome to take part in as many surveys and discussion forums as you like.
On average, our surveys are approximately 10-15 minutes; however, some can be as short as 5 minutes and others can be longer than 15 minutes. All surveys and activities are completely voluntary and we will let you know the approximate length of the survey in the invitation so you can plan accordingly. As well, surveys can be stopped and restarted later from where you left off if you are in a hurry.
