FAQ | Work and Travel


In which areas is a holiday job possible?
Thanks to our excellent contacts in Chile, we are able to offer jobs in almost every area. For example, popular activities are in the following areas:

  • Tourism (outdoor agency, travel agency, hostel, hotel, ...)
  • Gastronomy
  • Working on a farm
  • Horse ranch

What are the working hours?
Working hours are generally from Monday to Friday, 6 to 8 hours per day. For some jobs, however, flexibility is necessary. So it may be that you have to work weekends and have a day off during the week.


What salary can I expect?
Most holiday jobs include free accommodation and meals. Sometimes you get a little pocket money.


Is there a minimum duration or a mandatory date?
You determine the duration and time for your working holiday yourself. But for most jobs, we recommend that you work for at least 2 months.


What language skills do I need?
The level of knowledge of Spanish required is dependent on the type of job chosen. In many areas, basic knowledge is sufficient. But even if you do not yet speak Spanish or very little, it is no problem. In our chosen Spanish language schools you will reach the required language level before starting your holiday job within a few weeks. For beginners, a minimum course duration of 6 weeks is recommended.


Where will I stay during my holiday job?
Your employer provides your accommodation free of charge. Should this not be the case, we will take care of it. Whether host family, shared flat, hostel, hotel, holiday home or apartment, we arrange accommodation according to your wishes. Our accommodations are all selected carefully. We are happy to assist you in finding the best accommodation for your needs regarding roommates, location and equipment.


What does it cost to apply?
After a binding registration a prepayment of 100 USD or 75 € has to be made. The remaining costs are incurred only after a successful placement has been arranged. If a successful placement could not be possible, you will, of course, get your prepayment back.
