Budget Icelandic airline Wow Air is looking for a “fun pair of individuals who are able to think big” – either two content creators, or a friend along for the adventure.

Chosen applicants will move to a furnished apartment in downtown Reykjavik, Iceland, on June 1. Besides their homebase and four domestic trips around Iceland, this job package offers lots of self-autonomy.

The chosen pair will travel to any 8, spending 2-4 days in each. WOW currently serves 38 cities, including destinations like Barcelona, Los Angeles, Stockholm, and New York. Apartment cost, transportation, tour and living expenses are all thoroughly covered by the airline, on top of the monthly salary of 3,300 euros (SGD$5,330) for each traveler. 

The duo will be tasked to document along their travel, covering various areas from food, culture to nightlife and nature ideal for a budget-friendly travel. Daily KPI will be met on social media, in the form of vlogs, Instagram stories, blogs posts, photos and ‘any other form of creative media you can think of’. Final visuals and content will ultimately be curated for Travel Guide, a dedicated section on the Wow Air website, offering online tips and guides on the travel destinations.

To apply, head to the website and upload a two-minute clip offering travel tips for their hometown. The contest is open to candidates worldwide and deadline is May 14. Winners will be announced on social media on May 18, just in time for the adventure to commence on June 1.
