Please visit our Contact us page. We’re available every day from 9-5.
If we’re not able to get back to your message straight away, we’ll aim to reply within 24 hours.
If you have an emergency, please call emergency services.
How do reviews work?
At the end of each visit, you’ll be prompted to leave a review of your experience.
You’ll be asked whether you’d recommend or use the companion or organiser again via:
- A ‘thumbs up’ or a ‘thumbs down’
- A comment box
Both companions and organisers review you in the same way. It’s a system that encourages the best behaviour on both sides and will ensure that both companions and organisers get the best experience possible.
Your review is then visible to other people on the app to help guide them to make good decisions.
Writing a review
To leave a review for a recent visit, go to your reviews.
Reviews are limited to 500 words and must follow companiions Review Policy. The best reviews include information that will help future companions and organisers.
Finding past reviews
To read reviews you've written or reviews about you, go to your reviews in the app
Responding to or disputing a review
Our community relies on honest, transparent reviews. To report a review you think goes against our review policy please contact us
How can I keep my account secure?
Review the tips below to learn more about how you can help keep your account and information secure.
Make sure your password is at least 8 characters long, and try to use a mix of letters, numbers, and capitals/non capitals. The password you use for your companiions account should be different than the passwords you use for other websites, like your email, bank account, or social media. That way, if one of your other accounts is compromised, it's less likely to impact your companiions account.
A few general guidelines to help you stay safe online:
- Always log in at https://companiions.com/: or via your app. Check any page's URL before you enter your login info – when in doubt, you can always type https://www.companiions.com directly into your browser.
- Look for “https://” at the beginning of the URL. This means that your connection is encrypted, protecting the integrity and confidentiality of data sent between your computer and companiions. Some browsers may also show a lock icon next to the URL to confirm that it’s secure. companiions will try and force your browser to use HTTPS, but this may not work for all browsers.
- Keep your devices and software up to date: Device manufacturers and software providers often provide updates that address security risks and introduce new security protections.
- Install antivirus software: Install antivirus software from a trustworthy source to detect, prevent, and remove common viruses or other types of attacks.
- Check the sender: Don't click any links or download any attachments unless you know and trust the source.
Off-site payments and messages
companiions will never ask you to pay elsewhere – and we ask that you keep all payment and communication on the companiions platform. Don't share your email address before a visit is accepted or transfer funds outside the companiions system, and always carefully examine emails claiming to be from companiions. We’ll never ask you to exchange money outside of companiions or send us your password information over email.
If you encounter a suspicious profile, listing, or message thread or if someone emails you asking you to pay or accept payment off-site, let us know right away by contacting us
