The budget carrier will pay two friends $4,000 each per month to move to Iceland and become travel guides

Is travelling all over the world your ideal plan for the summer? And how about getting paid for it?

Icelandic low-cost carrier WOW Air is looking for people with this dream. They aim to hire two best friends to move to Reykjavik and travel the world while blogging and vlogging.

 

The budget carrier launched their WOW Travel Guide competition on 23 April and says they are looking for a “fun pair of individuals who are able to think.”

The airline said: “We are now accepting applications for a 3 month paid summer job, where you will move to Iceland and travel the world with your best friend.”

“Your mission will be to explore some of WOW Air’s 38 destinations and document your travels to create a complete digital Travel Guide.”

The winners will be relocated to Iceland on June 1 and their flat will serve as their base for other trips over North America, Europe, and Iceland itself until the end of August.

Once moved to downtown Reykjavik, the successful applicants will be allowed to pick their desired locations as Wow Air operates flights to places such as Barcelona, Los Angeles, Stockholm, or New York.

Not only the carrier will cover housing costs in Iceland and travel expenses for the flights, the new travel guides will be also paid $4,000 a month each.

Candidates are free to fill the application available here. Every applicant is required to shoot and upload a two-minute clip offering travel tips for their hometown. The contest is open to candidates everywhere.

The application deadline is scheduled for 14 May and the winners will be announced on 18 May.

WOW Air operates flights to 38 destinations and, with the cooperation with Kiwi.com, they cover the whole planet.
