As Remote Year's original work and travel program, our 12-month Around the World program is our most transformative experience in which you’ll get the chance to explore several continents, try as many different types of cuisine as possible, explore new passions, learn new skills, complete personal goals, develop meaningful relationships with your community and really change your life.

If the idea of joining a traveling community of like-valued professionals for a year-long adventure around the world excites you, don’t let the initial cost hold you back from exploring the next steps that could change your life.
The down payment is paid when you officially sign up for a Remote Year program to secure your spot. When you make this first payment, it shows us your serious commitment to a program and affords us the confidence to begin booking all of your arrangements on your behalf.
The monthly payment is a fee paid at the beginning of every month as you land at each stop on your itinerary. The fee covers everything included in that city and can be thought of as "paying rent" except instead of just covering for your accommodations, you're also getting flights, workspace, events and programming, a community, on-site support, and much much more.
"I remember looking at it and thinking 'I could do this for much cheaper on my own.' However, once I actually signed up and started living the RY life I realized that there was no way I could have done even half of what I do on RY on my own. The sheer logistics that they sort out for you is unbelievable. You land in a new city every month and within 3 hours you're fully functional."

With the $5,000 Down Payment and 12 monthly payments of $2,000 (one for each month on the program) the total program cost amounts to $29,000 dollars by the end of your Remote Year experience. Here are the three different options you have to cover the cost:
If you opt to pay for the entirety of the program now you will receive a $1,000 discount and $28,000 will be charged at the time of purchase.
If you opt to pay the full down payment today you will receive a discount of $250 and $4,750 will be charged at the time of purchase.
If you opt to pay your down payment via payment plan, $1,000 will be charged at the time of purchase and the remaining will be collected in two $2,000 installments:
In any case, payment plans must be fully paid 60 days before your program launch. If you have a remaining balance on your payment plan at the “60 days out” mark, it will automatically become due and be collected.
Example: Initial payment - July 15; second installment - August 31; third installment - September 30.
