Working Conditions, Hours and Payment for Travel Jobs

While travel jobs might sound one long working vacation, there are some things that you must be aware of when you apply (reality check time). Depending on the type of job you get, you might have very long hours and not be able to explore as much as you would like. You will get the odd day off, so make the most of it. When you are working, take the opportunity to talk to people and gain the most from where you are.

Working conditions will vary depending on where you work in your resort, hotel, cruise liner or yacht. If you are in the engine department, you might spend a good deal of your time below deck, but if you are one of the recreation staff, deck barman, or waiters, you will have stunning views, and interesting sights to see. You will receive great benefits from the company that employs you for travel work, such as medical / health cover.

The payment you receive will also vary and some will work on weekly amounts, hourly wages or monthly salaries. Some companies will offer bonuses for overtime and weekend work, and you will also usually receive great tips if you are in the food and beverage section.
