Top Ten reasons to use Working Traveller if you are a host


  • Why use Working Traveller? If you have a look at the help pages for travellers it says ” If you are not looking to work hard and gain reference, maybe stick to  Woofing “. Working Traveller (WT) is all about motivated young people  and hosts who want to get on and achieve. Not the travellers you read about in the use groups for Helpx etc. Our slogan is ” Do you have what it takes?” The lazy ones don’t and will soon leave. Good enough reason? No, need more? Read on 🙂
  • Working Traveller is all about skills, the skills you need for the work and hand and the skills the travellers who are coming you way have. We have nearly 1000 skills registered in the Skills section. If you can’t find the skills you are looking for -contact us and we will add it, no matter how obscure it may be. Someone out there has the knowledge you need and would love to work with you. You just need to find them – that’s what WT is all about – matching the right skills with the right host who needs them.

  •  You want lazy workers who are basically on holiday? Volunteering and cultural exchange is all very well, and for your harvesting and cleaning roles is all you need. Many Working Travellers are happy to work for their bed and board for a days work to build their CV’s. But imagine having the ability to get highly skilled professionals coming to work for you for local salary costs of even less. Skilled people you can rely on as they need their good references to make a living. They turn up on time, do the job and save you a tonne of hassle.

  •  Your a host and your sceptical about paying for anything online – we know that, we are hosts too 🙂 Working Traveller is 100% free to sign up to and use for hosts. We make our money from travellers who need to pay €10 a year to have their references appear on their profiles. So all we ask is for you to always make a work placement agreement with them in the site – other wise we are a charity 🙂

  • Traveller Search – this is where it all happens. Have a look. You type in the skills you need for the job in hand, no matter how diverse, when you need those skills and … bang – all travellers coming you way with the skills you need in the time you need them appear on the search map. No other service gets you connected to the right travellers with the right skills in a few simple clicks.

  •  We have a mobile app – designed for working travellers on the move. Travellers are all traveling and contacting you on their phone. Having a mobile app makes it super easy for them to communicate with you and they get their messages in real time so get back to you much quicker than email.

  •  Because we are free for travellers to use, we are growing daily. All services similar to Working Traveller charge travellers  €20 or more before they can contact hosts – some €20 or more each time they visit a host. Working Traveller is free for them to use and they like that – a lot.  See for your self here in the Work Search we have over 50,000 travellers sign up and we are growing ever day.

  •  We are building a wiki for every continent, every country, every region and yes – every county in the world. Its called the Work in? Wiki. It’s a huge task and when its done will provide future generations of travellers with invaluable information on what kind of work for travellers can be found in some of the most remotest parts of the world. It also means they will find your host opportunity when they search in Google. No other service provides this.

  •  Are you organised? Do you have a plan for what work you need doing for the next year and want to book up workers over six months in advance? Working Traveller is focused on getting the right skills to the right hosts at the right time. It’s not about getting travellers their next free bed, its about working smart and having the right work placements booked up way in advance before you arrive. If you like to be more organised than most WT is if you.

  • Working Traveller is run by a young fun team of travellers  and hosts, OK one host, me – just like you. This I guess is not a reason to use us, but its nice to know you are joining a community that thinks and works like you and not some stuffy corporation with offices someone where. We work as digital nomads in the winter and from our hotel in the summer and don’t waste money on offices and things stuff like that 🙂 Any money we make from the site goes straight back into development.
It's free - it will change your life. What are you waiting for?
