What is Remote Year
and how does it work?

Remote Year curates work and travel programs for professionals to work remotely from cities around the world without having to quit their jobs.

Join a program with your current employment situation and follow an itinerary with a group of like-minded participants from a variety of different backgrounds for a year or four-months.

World travel without the hassle.

We handle all the planning and logistics so you can focus on the experience. The monthly fee covers accommodations, transportation including flights, workspace access, local experiences, events and more in every stop on your itinerary.

A unique take on work-life balance.

Our local city teams are there to plan various activities and events throughout the week so that participants can easily enjoy the experience without interfering with their job. It's common to fit in a hike before the work day or take a cooking class during lunch.

Community bonds like no other.

Traveling with other members of your community for the duration of your itinerary will allow you to create unique relationships from professional connections to life-long friendships that will last long after the program is over.

Why Remote Year?

  • Save Time Planning

    Traveling solo means a lot of time spent researching flight deals and inspiring Airbnbs. As a member of a work and travel program, you don’t have to worry about the travel details. Your flights between destinations on your itinerary, your access to great coworking spaces, and your accommodations are carefully planned for you before you arrive in your destination by on-the-ground Remote Year staff. These are the people that you can count on if something goes awry:

  • Hit the Ground Running

    City Teams curate local Tracks™ that give you a unique perspective into the local history and culture of your destination. Think: learning how to craft knives from masters who have passed down this ancient art for generations in Hanoi. Sitting down with Nelson Mandela’s former warden in Cape Town to hear about the legendary leader firsthand. Taking a tour through Comuna 13 in Medellín, learning the stories behind the city’s violent past and how it was interpreted through graffiti murals directly from the street artists. These are the kinds of once-in-a-lifetime experiences that you can expect on a Remote Year program.

  • Travel with a Community by your Side

    Joining a work and travel program like Remote Year grants you automatic membership into a global community of like-valued professionals. Create deep and meaningful connections with your community as you travel together from city to city, in contrast to the surface-level, repetitive conversations required when meeting new solo travelers on a daily or weekly basis. When homesickness (or real sickness) kicks in during your travels you won’t be on your own - you’ll have close relationships to lean on in your time of need.
