We’re looking for 4 travel addicts to assemble The Ultimate Travel Squad

Embark on a 3-month European summer adventure and document every step of your experience on our social networks and blog

Are you looking for a chance to explore Europe with a group of travel-loving social media-savvy travellers this summer? Then look no further, because this year we’re looking for 4 travel addicts to assemble The Ultimate Travel Squad! Their mission will be to embark on a 3-month European summer adventure and document every step of the experience on our social networks and blog. If you feel like you have *exactly* what it takes to be part of The Squad, read on!

There are Four positions available:

We're looking for engaging storytellers with creative minds who are addicted to travel, adventure, and a good time! It goes without saying that being a social media junkie helps too. #wink

You love to take a snap (or ten!) and you aren’t ashamed of going the extra mile to do it “for the ‘gram”. You also have the best captions for your posts, of course!

With you no detail goes unnoticed, if something’s worth capturing then you’re getting the camera out. You live to tell a story and love to try new ways to share your experiences.

You’re crazy about writing, and the only thing you love more than the magic of travelling is being able to relive your stories when telling the world about them!

Snapchat/Instagram Stories:
You strongly believe there’s no time like the present, and that’s why you prefer to share your experiences in real-time. Spontaneity is what you live for!
