Contiki Euro-Trip: Get paid to Travel & Party

Written by 12 June 2011 15 Comments

Imagine the following scenario:

You have the summer off and would love to go traveling across Europe, meet a ton of people, go to festivals and have the time of your life.

Now what if I told you that you can have all that for free AND get paid on top of that? You don’t think that’s possible? Well, think again!

Our friends over at Contiki, the world’s biggest provider for young group travels, is recruiting team players for their guerilla army, a group of cool folks aged 18 to 35 who travel through various festivals in Europe this summer. Over the course of 21 days you travel, see shows, have fun and help spread the word about Contiki Tours.

The itinerary is pretty amazing: France, Austria, Italy, Germany – 3 weeks, 4 countries, 3 festivals, unlimited hours of fun with an army of new friends from all over the world.

The festivals in question are:

Garance Reggae Festival in Bagnols-sur-Ceze, Southern France.

Szene Open Air Festival in Lustenau, Austria.

SonneMondSterne Festival in Saalburg, Central Germany

On top of that you’re going to the beautiful Lake Como in Italy, the Hopfgarten in Munich and the Contiki Chateau.


You should be friendly and sociable as you will be meeting people, handing out flyers and T-shirts at the festival campsites.
3 hours work a day during the afternoons when there is no music. You will be free at all other times to enjoy the festival or relax while traveling.

Return flights/trains will be provided to the winners.

Food will be supplied on all festival days (you have to buy your own lunches though). Accommodation at festivals will be in Contiki tents, sole occupancy – although this could change depending on numbers etc. For the 21 days, participants will receive €400.

To win a spot in this unique adventure army, simply go to www.contiki.com/garmy and enter your information.

Good luck!!

Update: After getting some notices from folks who couldn’t use the link, we asked and found out that this is only open to people living in the UK and Europe. Sorry guys! We’ll keep you posted if they start something like this for a global audience, I think they’re looking into it due to the reat response to this one.

  • Katja (author) said:

    Hey guys, after some research within Contiki, it looks as if the offer is not available for Americans living in the States. Americans living in Europe can still apply though. So sorry about this!!
