Why Remote Year?

Here's what you should know:

Remote Year is no longer just a year long program.

Remote Year now offers 4 and 6 month long programs enabling even more people to work and travel the world with us who can’t go for as long. While our 12-month program is for individuals looking for a life-changing experience or looking to fully immerse themselves in a work and travel lifestyle, our 4-month programs we recommend for individuals who are interested in trying out the remote work lifestyle, have limitations with how long they can travel for, or are only interested in exploring one of our regions at a time.

We only publish itineraries to our website 4-6 months prior to their departure date, however we actually have program departures planned out through 2020. Schedule time with a program consultant and they can help you figure out what program is best for you and show you all of our future departure dates.

Our team can help you go remote… no really. 

Don't currently have a remote job? No problem. We can't provide you with a remote job but our Enterprise Solutions Team of in-house experts can help you work with your manager to transition your job and make it possible to join a Remote Year program. We've worked with businesses of all sizes, from Fortune 500 companies to startups, and have over an 50% success rate getting approval from their companies.

We’ve made a lot of improvements to our core platform.

Our team realizes that our customers are leaving their homes behind to travel with us and we want to make sure that all of our participants feel as much at home as possible while on our programs. That said, we've made massive improvements to the accommodations and workspaces that we use, partnering up with established local workspaces in each country and securing leases with property managers for our accommodations to maintain more control over where our participants are living.

Your month in every city is now customizable.

Our Local Experience teams work hard to curate amazing and unique experiences for our customers to truly immerse themselves and make the best of their month. Over the past few years we've collected so many opportunities for our customers, we decided to build out the Remote Year Marketplace, a one-stop shop for local experiences curated by our team. Here, participants on our program to customize their month to suit their interests, preferences, and schedules.

Participants still enjoy programming, events, and experiences that are included on the program, but the Marketplace makes it easy to book experiences without having to go through the extra trouble of researching and arranging experiences yourself.
