Company offers free trips for travelers who let Instagram decide their fate

(WISH) — Would you let your Instagram followers decide your every move if it meant a paid vacation?

That’s what six people will do all summer as they travel by bus across parts of Europe, Southeast Asia or the western US this summer as content creators for travel operator Busabout in its Great Travel Experiment.

During an all-expenses-paid trip of up to 11 weeks, winners will create stories and videos for Busabout’s social media platforms and participate in challenges where interactive polls let the audience decide between options like “whether or not to swallow a deep fried insect in Bangkok.” 

The company is looking to fill two positions for each destination: Instagram Storyteller and Videographer. 

To apply, choose a position, a preferred destination and record a 60-second video to show off your hometown.

The Southeast Asia and U.S. trips last six weeks, while the Europe trip lasts 11 weeks and ends at Oktoberfest in Munich. In addition to the free trip, winners will be paid $260 a week.

Contestants can apply until April 8. Click here to submit your video.
