If you’ve always fancied a digital nomad lifestyle, or want to explore one, here’s some news you could use.
And an opportunity that you can make good use of in 2023. You could work from incredible destinations and explore the world alongside your 9-5 job.
Holiday rentals marketplace HomeToGo has announced a search for its first ever Professional Nomad: a remote or hybrid worker who’ll receive up to three months of free stays in incredible rentals via HomeToGo’s marketplace in order to experience the ultimate workation.
The opportunity, which is open for submissions via hometogo.de/nomad/en up to 15 January 2023, comes alongside new research revealing the top cities for workations across Europe in 2023.
The demand for workations is soaring, with web searches for the term seeing a year-on-year increase of 210% in 2022¹. Moreover, in a recent HomeToGo consumer survey of German residents², 75% of participants stated that they would like to go on a workation next year. To help this wave of remote working adventurers find ideal destinations for their travels, HomeToGo has researched over 150 European cities to create a ranking of the top spots for workations across the continent.
Looking for locations that offer superlative set ups for travellers working remotely, plenty of things to do and see around the 9-5, plus good value for money, HomeToGo’s 2023 Workation Index takes into consideration the number of coworking spaces per capita, internet speeds, the amount of highly-rated tourist attractions, hours of daylight, and the median price per night per person for holiday accommodation in each city.
Jonas Upmann, Travel Expert at HomeToGo, adds: “From seasoned digital nomads to those starting to think about their first trip of this kind, we hope that HomeToGo’s 2023 Workation Index will provide plenty of workation inspiration to all types of travellers. It’s clear that workations are here to stay – and with privacy, space, and functional office setups, holiday rentals are the ideal accommodation for this type of travel. We look forward to finding our first ever Professional Nomad to test this out at scale in 2023!”
