This Company Will Pay You To Take A 3-Month Road Trip Around Europe


Looking for a summer job that also doubles as an unforgettable European vacation? You may be in luck because the travel company Busabout is hiring four travel enthusiasts to go on an epic three-month road trip through 15 countries this summer — all while getting paid to document their adventures on social media!

Like last year’s winners, the four lucky ones chosen to be Busabout’s ambassadors will travel to Europe’s most iconic cities via the company’s network of private hop-on, hop-off buses. This year’s three-month itinerary kicks off in Paris with stops in other charming capitals like Amsterdam, Berlin, Rome, Prague, Barcelona and more. While it’s not clear exactly how much the travelers will be paid, Busabout notes that they will cover all travel and accommodation and will also provide a “daily allowance to cover general travel and sustenance expenses.” The travelers will also have “plenty of creative liberty and time” to enjoy themselves during the trip.

So if you’re over the age of 18, available to travel for a three-month period during May to September 2018, have a valid passport and are an expert at Instagram, blogging, making videos for YouTube, or Snapchat, then this might be the job of your dreams. But hurry — the application deadline is April 17.
