This Tour Company Will Pay Your Rent While You Visit the Seven Wonders of the World
While everyone dreams of being able to pick up and travel on a moment’s notice, practical things tend to get in the way. You know, like a job, money, or who will pay your rent while you're traipsing around the globe. But now, Contiki, a social travel companyfor 18- to 35-year-olds, will take care of at least one of those problems for you if you book its trip to see all seven wonders of the world.
After you book Contiki’s new worldwide trip, the travel company will pay your rent for the duration of your two-month travels.
“The idea is simple – with the launch of its new Jordan & Israel trip, Contiki now visits all 7 New Wonders of the World, each on a different trip,” reps for Contiki said in a statement. “Think visiting Machu Picchu, the Colosseum, and the Great Wall.”
Those in the 18-to-35 category can book all seven trips for two months of “insane, around-the-world travel visiting the most iconic sites, and Contiki will cover their rent while abroad.”
Of course, every good deal comes with some fine print. Contiki’s trip around the globe starts at $13,610. It does not include international flights, transportation, accommodations, or meals in between trip itineraries.
The tour company will provide any 7 Wonders guests with a total savings of up to $2,840, which can go toward paying rent. The company came to this price point based on the national average of two months rent as of Feb. 4, 2019. Note: If your monthly rent is lower than the national average, the remaining amounts cannot be redeemed for cash and kind.
To get the deal, you must provide proof of a rental agreement or proof of monthly payments. This paperwork must be submitted before the discount is applied.
According to Contiki, 90 percent of Millennials and Gen-Xers listed visiting at least one of the wonders of the world as a bucket list item for 2019. Now, with Contiki helping you pay the rent, maybe you’ll actually be able to check them all off your list at once.
As the company explained, “Whether you’re a YoPro in between jobs, gap year traveler or need a serious break from adulthood, you can travel the world without having to feel guilty about your rent money going out the window or the stress of subletting.”
