5 ways to get free holidays

Have you ever wish to go to Slovenia, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada, Norway, Sweden, Germany, France or Italy? Ever wish to go on holidays for free? There’re several ways to get a trip for free. Here are the ways to get free holidays with links to now open opportunities.

1 -Taking pictures for a company

I see more often in facebook and internet companies looking for photographers to join a trip and take pictures while on the road. The photographer (amateur or professional) gets a free holiday and the company gets the pictures with all rights. Maybe it’s not so profitable for a professional photographer, but for an amateur could be a good option.

In the past,  Camper Verhuur Amsterdam offered a two weeks campervan trip . You could choose to take the campervan either to North Europe (Germany, Sweden, Denmark and Norway) or South Europe (Belgium, France, Italy and Austria). The company paid the rental of the campervan as well as up to 500€ of diesel.

2 – Being a model for a company

If you aren’t a photographer but don’t mind to be on the other side of the camera, you can apply to be a model for a holiday company. Normally they will pay the travel expenses and the accommodation, and in return, you will have to spend a number of hours posing for pictures. You can check Lukkien Casting’s facebook as they are looking for families, couples and young people to join their photoshoot in Italy.

3 – Being an ambassador of a destination

Do you love the outdoors and/or cycling? You can apply to be a Cycling Ambassador of Slovenia or keep an eye on Vakantieland Duitsland’s facebook as they look frequently hiking ambassadors.

4 – Relocating a car or campervan

Relocating a car or campervan is very popular in Australia and New Zealand, but you can also find some opportunities in USA, Canada and Europe. I normally check Imoova’s website. For Europe, there isn’t so much, but you can regularly book a relocation from Italy or Spain to The Netherlands or UK.

5 – Win a travel contest

There’re so many travel contests. For some contests, the winner is just randomly picked, but for others, you need to submit a picture or a do something. I have to admit that I love the second ones and that I have already won a couple of contests 🙂 You can search on twitter and Instagram for these contests.

I entered the contest for a 5 days trip along Ireland’s Coast, you need to guess how many people will join the contest. Hmmm, I hadn’t the right answer 😀

Update: let’s call it magic, but a couple of weeks after this post I got a phone call. “Do you remember you entered our giveaway?” …. “You’ve won the first price!”. Really?? Yes, I won a cruise with MSC. We will cruise in Juni from Venice to the Greek Islands and Montenegro . Where we will stay for another week. Doesn’t sound like a wonderful plan?
