Vayable - Get Paid to Plan Trips for Others

Vayable.com connects travelers looking for a unique experience with guides who can offer something different from the standard holiday tours. According to Vayable, their guides make an average of $300 per trip and up to as much as $1200! The guides get a percentage of the book fee.

It is a flexible opportunity that allows you to work the hours you want, but you will have to prove that you know the city or area you live in and are able to craft a great customised travel itinerary.

To qualify as a Vayable guide the requirements are:

  • You must be at least 18 years old
  • You must have a thorough knowledge of where you create trips for.
  • You must be friendly and community oriented.
  • You must pass a screening call and online training which takes 3 to 5 days.

The better the service you provide, the more work you will get. Experts and travelers rate each other after the trip and you can use the traveler reviews to decide if you want to accept an assignment from them.

Payments

 

You earn money as a guide by getting 10% of the booking amount paid to Vayable, and payments are made the day after they receive it. No waiting until the end of the month.

You don´t need to be a travel expert, you just have to passionate and knowable about the area you offer expert advice on. Contact them and offer your experience of the area you live in Spain and start earning money for creating local Spanish travel itineraries.
