Working holidays: send us your tips and you could win a £200 hotel voucher


This week we want to know about your experiences of working holidays and interesting ways you’ve funded your travels, whether it was your dream job … or turned into a complete nightmare. Maybe you blagged a job on a yacht, found yourself as an extra in a local movie, or taught kids in a remote village school. Whatever and wherever it may have been, we want to know all the details – including tips on how readers can do the same.

Send us your tips via GuardianWitness – including as much detail as you can (with websites if possible) and you could win a £200 hotel voucher.

The best tips will appear in print in next weekend’s Travel section and the winner, chosen by Tom Hall of Lonely Planet, will receive a £200 hotel voucher from, allowing you to stay in more than 260,000 places worldwide. Submit your tip by clicking the blue button and using the text tab.

You’re welcome to add a photo if you own the copyright to it – but it’s the text we’ll be judging!

Your tip should be around 100 words long. Terms and conditions.
