They say travel is the only thing you can buy that makes you richer, but with a working holiday you can travel the world and make some pocket money too.
From teaching English in Thailand to skiing snow covered slopes in New Zealand, travel experts The Global Work & Travel Co. have plenty of trips for working holidaymakers all around the world. Here are just a few...
Au Pair in France
Famous for fashion, art, gourmet food and fine wine, France is usually on the top of everyone’s bucket list.
The opportunity to be an au pair in France not only gives you the chance to live life like a local, it also gives you the ability to base yourself in one of the most beautiful places in the world while soaking up some of the best culture Europe has to offer (and some summer sun too).
Experience life in a major city like Paris, where you can spend your weekends with a coffee in one hand and a croissant in the other.
Visit landmarks like the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and the Arc de Triomphe while practising your French and making memories with your host family and the little ones you will be looking after.
Work the ski slopes in New Zealand
New Zealand is the land of magical landscapes, the real ‘Middle Earth’, ancient M?ori culture and kiwis aplenty (both the jandal wearing locals and the native bird).
In a single day, it’s possible to stand atop soaring mountains, see gigantic glaciers, raft down raging rapids, ski on world-class snow, wonder the green rolling hills of Hobbiton, kayak alongside golden sandy beaches and bounce upside down on the end of a bungy cable.
With plenty of bustling ski resorts and quaint towns to work in and countless hidden gems for you to uncover in between, here is the perfect opportunity to experience the best of both worlds in the Land of the Long Cloud.
Tutor in Germany
Known for beer, BMWs and Beethoven, Germany is one of Europe’s most historical and colourful countries best enjoyed in summer.
If you want to explore the historic highlights and stunning attractions of Germany, tutoring is the working holiday for you.
Like au pairing, tutoring is an immersive cultural experience but is a slightly different role to suit your host family and their needs.
Experience life in a major city like Berlin or Munich, explore museums, art galleries and even go on holiday with your family.
Visit famous landmarks like the Brandenburg Gate, Berlin’s Museum Island and the famous Neuschwanstein Castle (the same castle that inspired Walt Disney to create the Magic Kingdom).
You’ll be helping your family’s kids learn but you’ll be learning at the same time too.
Teach in Thailand
Teaching in Thailand is the best way to earn some money and keep those travels rolling.
If you've ever wanted to see what life in Thailand is like, then teaching in the kingdom of happy smiles is definitely an awesome option.
As a teacher in places such as Chiang Mai or Hua Hin, you have the chance to explore Thailand’s rich culture as well as helping to reshape the future of Thai youth and thus helping them to access future higher employment opportunities.
Plus, there’s plenty to explore in your downtime such as markets, temples and some of the best street food in the world – hello Pad Thai.
