If you've been working remotely lately, you may be looking for a responsible and adventurous way to shake up your normal WFH routine. If you're looking to work remotely from somewhere new and closer to nature with a group of like-minded people, you're looking for a TWC Remote Work Experience!

Each month we invite a small group (8-12 people) to join us in a different location around the world to live, work, and explore for the month. Those looking to join should have the ability to work remotely for at least a few weeks (remote job, freelancer, startup project, etc). Outside of work, we adventure together (learning new languages, hiking, surfing, scuba diving, biking, road-tripping) and seeing new places. These months differ from our usual Group Trips by being about living in these destinations, so you have all the flexibility and independence you could want each day (but also an inspiring group to be with when you do want the company). 

We've created a package that includes a furnished room for the month, access to a dedicated co-working space meant for full-time workers, daily wellness classes (yoga, meditation, etc), a group of peers to be a nomad with, a TWC host in each destination, airport transfers, and a hand-picked-by-TWC weekend trip in the country (with accommodation if necessary, transportation, and activities included for that weekend). 

The properties have onsite amenities (kitchens, pools, libraries, restaurants, wellness areas, movie rooms, etc depending on location)! The locations are beautifully designed, conveniently located, and can help you connect with other remote workers and nomads. Just below are photos from various properties (or activities near properties) that we plan to go to!

Can I stay for less than a month?

These offers can no longer be pro-rated for less than the 1 month (30 nights) stay. You can stay for less than the 30 nights, but the cost will be the same. In our opinion, these deals are so unreal that they are worth it even if you stay less than a month.

Will I receive travel preparation guidance and advice?

Yes! Included in the monthly package is online information to help you prepare for your trip to your specific location(s), including a detailed packing list and information on culture, weather, health, safety, and emergencies, a 1-hour pre-departure call with TWC to further go over the preparation information regarding country-specific COVID-19 guidelines, entry requirements, travel insurance, phone data, currency, general safety, and more, correspondence with TWC via email for any questions and concerns pre-departure, and TWC Host at your destination (note that the Host is not a tour guide).

What is the bathroom situation?

The Small Private Room comes with a bathroom that is shared with typically 3 other Small Private Rooms. However, if you want a private ensuite bathroom, there are Standard Private Rooms. The Standard Private Room is an upgrade with a private ensuite bathroom and a desk area in the room. See pricing above for each room type.

Can I share a room?

Yes, 2 people can split any of the private rooms and split some costs that way. However, there are different prices for people splitting a room, which are listed out above under #2. This is so that the second person can have all of the extras that come with the package that would typically only apply to 1 guest. Please note that having guests stay in your room without having them join the TWC group goes against TWC guidelines. 

What COVID-19 precautions are in place?

COVID-19 precautions are set by the Co-living space and the government of the location, so they will vary from country to country. In most of the countries on the schedule above, there is a mask mandate (meaning people typically wear a mask even when outdoors, walking in the street, hiking, etc), mandatory temperature checks plus hand sanitizer before entering shops and restaurants, and health screenings for all arrivals (including a negative PCR test). Many restaurants, cafes, etc are outdoors as well. Some countries, like Costa Rica, additionally have mandatory travel insurance requirements.

The COVID-19 protocols for the accommodation and co-working space are set by the Co-living space management. All precautions pertaining to the rooms, co-working space, and anywhere on the property are set and the responsibility of the Co-living management. Please request the PDF written by the Co-living space outlining their COVID-19 protocols when finalizing your itinerary with TWC.

The regulations that TWC adds on top of accommodation and government regulations include requiring a negative COVID-19 test to join the group (at the cost of the traveler if there are any costs associated), even if it is not required by the destination country itself. We also encourage to stay masked as much as possible, gather only outdoors for the most part, don't share food/drinks, and take private transportation as much as possible.

Do I need travel insurance?

We 100% recommend travel insurance. Exploring travel insurance policies could give you more peace of mind. There are insurance policies that include things like "cancel for any reason" clauses, specific medical coverage for COVID-19, repatriation coverage, policies that cover quarantine expenses, and more. Travel insurance is one topic that we discuss in our pre-departure calls with Remote Work Experience travelers

What is the cancellation policy? 

Our accommodation partner let TWC know that should it become impossible for someone to make it to their booking (for only specific reasons, such as a positive Covid test or a country's border closing), then they will work with the traveler to allow them to change their dates. For the work that TWC does, there is a community fee and monthly deposit that are non-refundable. There may be other non-refundable costs for canceling for other reasons as you get closer to your departure date (refer to your itinerary contract), but TWC is also willing to work with a traveler on a change of dates for the specific reasons that our accommodation partner is.

How long will these packages be available?

TWC Remote Work Experiences are now a staple TWC service that we plan to offer year-round! 

Does the package come with the remote job?

Unfortunately, no, those looking to join should already have the ability to work remotely for at least a few weeks (remote job, freelancer, startup project, etc). However, we do have many suggestions on ways to make money online over on our Blog.
