At Canadian Traveller, we love any opportunity to get out and explore the world but of course, it’s always nice to sweeten the pot.
You know, like when there's no cost to do it.
Turns out that could be a real possibility for a few of you fine folks, because Busabout is seeking a team of four talented travel addicts to Snap, vlog, blog or Instagram their way across Europe this summer.
That’s right – an all-expenses-paid adventure worth $9,000.
The lucky members of the soon-to-be-founded Ultimate Travel Squad will explore Europe on Busabout’s Hop-on Hop-off private door-to-door coach network over three months, from early June to early September 2018. The trip will include an Unlimited Hop-on Hop-off Pass, accommodation, spending money plus a bonus fee at the end of the trip. And yes, for Canadians winning these coveted spots on the ‘squad,’ return flights from Canada will be included on top of this.
The itinerary will tick off some of Europe’s hottest hot spots like Lake Bled, Krakow and San Sebastián, and venture off-the-beaten track to hidden gems like the hikers’ paradise of Grünau in Austria, and adrenaline junkie haven of Lauterbrunnen in Switzerland. Plus, the squad’s epic three-month adventure will culminate with a week sailing in Croatia. (Hey Busabout, are we eligible to win, too?)
So how can you win?
Each member of Busabout’s ‘squad’ will be selected based on their talent for creating content in their chosen social platform; one Instagrammer, one blogger, a vlogger and a Snapchatter. (Pro tip: If this sounds like you and your best friends, you can even enter as a group! Those wishing to do so can submit a video together, ensuring to select a different social platform for each person.)
To apply for a spot on the Ultimate Travel Squad, all you need to do is select your preferred social platform (Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube or a blogging platform such as Blogspot and WordPress) and record a 60-second video showcasing why you’re the best person for the “job.” Canadians have until mid-April 2018 to apply by visiting this website.
We repeat: this is the website where the journey might begin.
Good luck, Canadian travellers!
