Listen Now: Paid Vacation: This Company Will Pay Your Rent As You Travel
Real life getting in the way of your travel plans? One company is helping get you on the road.
Contiki, a social travel company for eighteen to thirty-five-year-olds, is offering a trip to see the seven wonders of the world. That includes sites such as the Great Wall of China, Machu Picchu and the Roman Colosseum. And here’s the best part, the company will pay your rent for the entire time you’re gone.
So how does it work? The trip to all seven sites is broken up into two-month vacations. The only way to make sure your rent is covered is to book all seven trips for a one-of-a-kind two months of travel experience. But like any good deal, remember to read the fine print.
The trip costs thirteen thousand dollars not including airfare. Plus the company will only pay up to twenty eight hundred dollars towards rent, based on the current national average.
So if you live in a city where your rent is well above the national average you might want to consider finding a temporary roommate.
