Host Type

Different Types of Hosts


  • You run your own business and either you or the person who deals with Working Travellers lives on the premises or is always close at hand.
  • Travellers will deal with you or the person on site personally.
  • This is the main point, you have accommodation and ideally eating facilities for the Working Traveller – either on site or near by.
  • If you are accommodation only you need to make that very clear on your profile that you do not provide meals.

Work Only

  • You’re the same as above, but you do not have any facilities to accommodate people.
  • You might be a shop or a restaurant and expect travellers to find their own place to sleep but can provide meals, make it clear in your profile.
  • For this kind of host, travellers may well expect to be paid for the work they do.


Remote Host

  • You need things doing, somewhere in the world, but you will not be there. Maybe you need a car picking up from somewhere and bringing to your loctaion. Maybe you have a piece of land somewhere and you want someone to start building a place there for you. But your not there. The main point of this type of host is, you will not be where the work takes place and they will need to communicate with you via the Internet, phone, skype etc.
  • By having this kind of host, it opens up opportunities that were not seen as possible before. A host can now have things happening all over the world for them, all at the same time and all managed remotely.

Digital Nomad

  • This kind of host, is like the ‘Remote Host’ but does not need on location skills like carpenters, teachers or someone who can pick up their car for them in the UK and drive it to Spain.
  • This kind of host works purely in the digital world and are looking for travellers who can provide the kind of work they need. Maybe its a blog they need managing, or they want to have someone who is going to South America and write a piece on the vineyards of Argentina. This kind of host is looking for some one who is living the life of a traveller and wants them to either write about it or are looking for some one to do part time work as they spend most of their time travelling. The traveller will never meet this host and the work may well involve a lot of travel, but will always be delivered digitally.
