Fancy yourself a travel expert? This company wants you

Working in travel isn’t always everything it’s cracked up to be.

Free trips worldwide, constant events and great people.

Sometimes it really can get you down.

Kidding, we all know how awesome it is and what a privilege it is to work in travel.

And now, Busabout wants to find travel experts like yourself to travel globe and document the experience on social media.

Oh, and did we mention it’s all expenses paid?

The tour company is seeking a team of four talented travel addicts to Instagram, blog, Snap, or vlog their way across Europe this summer during an all-expenses-paid adventure worth $7,000!

Whether you have a way with words, are a pro at making a picture pop, or a master at inducing FOMO in a 10-second clip, there’s a spot on the squad for you.

Each member of Busabout’s Ultimate Travel Squad will be selected based on their talent for creating content in one of four social platforms: one Instagrammer, one blogger, one vlogger, and a Snapchatter or Instagram Stories creator.

If this sounds like you and three of your friends, you can even enter as a group!

The four selected members of the Ultimate Travel Squad will explore Europe on Busabout’s Hop-on Hop-off door-to-door bus network over three months, from early June to early September 2018.

Each member of the squad will experience an unforgettable adventure worth $7,000, which includes an Unlimited Hop-on Hop-off Pass, accommodation, spending money, and a bonus fee at the end of the trip!

Return flights from the US will be included on top of this.

The itinerary will tick off some of Europe’s trendiest hot spots like Lake Bled, Kraków, and San Sebastián, and venture off-the-beaten-track to hidden gems like the hikers’ paradise of Grünau in Austria, and adrenaline junkie haven of Lauterbrunnen in Switzerland.

Plus, the squad’s epic three-month adventure will culminate with a week sailing in Croatia.

To apply for a spot on the squad, all you need to do is select your preferred social platform (Instagram, YouTube, blogging or Snapchat/Instagram Stories,) and record a 60-second video showcasing why you’re the only person for the position.

Extra points will be awarded for creativity!

Those wishing to apply as a duo, trio, or group of four can submit a video together, making sure to select a different social platform for each person.

Videos can be submitted on the Busabout website here, and entries are open until mid-April 2018.

Last year, Busabout ran a similar contest, The Best Job in the World, and selected two travel addicts to be its Brand Ambassador and Video Producer for the summer.

This time the opportunity is bigger and better than ever as Busabout is doubling the number of places available and creating a whole squad of hungry content creators.
