Boca Raton, Fla., March 11, 2019 – Flexible travel operator, Busabout, is seeking six travel-hungry social content creators to join its global team. The successful candidates will get paid to embark on an all-expenses paid trip worth up to $10,400, traveling with Busabout for as long as 11 weeks. So what’s the catch?
Brave applicants must be prepared to leave their holiday experience in the hands of Instagram’s audience. From tough decisions like skydiving or white water rafting in Lauterbrunnen, and whether or not to swallow a deep fried insect in Bangkok, Instagram users will have the power to decide what happens next. The interactive polls on Instagram Stories will allow Busabout’s audience to have a say in each and every moment of the winners’ global adventures.
Last year, Busabout assembled an Ultimate Travel Squad of four content creators who took over Busabout’s social platforms for three months while traveling across Europe. This summer, the opportunity is bigger and better than ever – Busabout is going global. The six winners of The Great Travel Experiment will travel through one of three destinations in which Busabout operates in; South East Asia, Europe, or test-drive its brand new program in the USA, all while capturing envy-inducing content for the travel company’s social media channels.
There are two positions up for grabs in each destination – an Instagram Storyteller who is confident in front of a lens, passionate about traveling and has a knack for telling a great story, and a Videographer with creative flair and experience filming and editing brilliant video content. All successful candidates, no matter their chosen position, will be required to get involved in the challenges set by Instagram’s audience.
The South East Asia and USA itineraries both last for six weeks over summer, while the 11-week Europe itinerary hits the hot spots across the continent and culminates with beers and pretzels at Oktoberfest in Munich. All six successful content creators will be paid $260 each week on top of the all-expenses paid trip.
To apply for The Great Travel Experiment simply select your position (Instagram Storyteller or Videographer), suggest a preferred destination and record a 60-second video showcasing the best bits of your very own hometown – extra points will be awarded for creativity. Candidates can apply as a dynamic duo with a fellow creative genius, or sign up solo and bond with their new colleague on the road.
Videos can be submitted on the Busabout website here and entries are open until April 8, 2019. The Busabout team will select a shortlist and leave the final decision up to public vote on the Busabout website.
