Thanks for your interest in working with us!

Thrifty Nomads is an inspiration hub for affordable travel created by a husband-wife team, Jen & Ted. Our goal is to not only motivate people to travel, but to show them exactly how to do it. If this is a concept you’re passionate about, let’s talk!

Current writing jobs (February 2018)

At the moment, we are seeking freelance writers to author pieces in any of the following areas:

  • Specific “how to” guides on visiting particular places: Mount Everest, the Amazon, Antarctica
  • Long-form destination guides with detailed information (example here and here). Regions of interest include Iceland, USA, Southeast Asia.
  • A guide on U.S. credit cards, American points programs and how to efficiently use cards and points to travel cheaply or free. More detailed job listing here.
  • How-to guides on various topics (e.g. how to travel cheaply with children, how to travel if you have debt).
  • Work & travel topics (e.g. how to teach overseas, how to work remotely & travel).
  • Inspirational posts (e.g. why grief inspired me to travel).
  • Any “travel hack” type posts

What we look for

We seek writers who can create digestible, practical information. All articles should be concise, accurate, and sensibly broken up with headings. Our aim is to have readers gain new knowledge from our articles, without having to sift through “fluff”.

Professional writing experience is ideal but not essential if you can provide samples demonstrating your writing abilities. We supply a detailed template and contract for proposed blog posts to successful applicants.

Rate of pay & how to apply

As hard-working bloggers ourselves, we don’t believe in making people write for us in exchange for free “exposure”. Your time is money. Serious applicants will be provided with information on rates, and all our writers are paid.

Interested? Send us the following information to [email protected]:

  1. Background info about yourself including writing experience and where you’re from, trips you’ve done (including destination(s) and length of stay in a particular region if you wish to write a destination guide on it)
  2. Minimum 2 samples of your writing OR a draft/outline of any of our required article types listed above
  3. Ideas for blog post(s) you are interested in writing

Due to the large volume of e-mails we receive, only successful applicants will be contacted. Thank you!
