Twelve new content creators and promoters, selected from over 10,000 applicants, to be World Travel Hackers this summer

June 28, 2024

Prague, Czech Republic – has completed the difficult selection process to get down to the final twelve chosen to be this summer’s World Travel Hackers. Along with their chosen travel buddies, they now have the phenomenally exciting experience of traveling to far flung destinations and documenting their journeys along the way to give inspiration and travel advice to others.

Following the successful adventures of last year’s seven World Travel Hackers, this time increased the search to 12. The first step involved signing up to become a member of the Flight Crew (members get special offers, deals and other benefits for posting cool travel content) and then create content on their preferred social media channels explaining why they should be chosen. In total, received over 10,300 applications, from over 130 countries. 

“It is great to see interest from such a diverse pool of creators wishing to become this year’s World Travel Hackers. We received applications from a wide range of freelancers, including: water polo players, moms, bodybuilders, rappers, and even aspiring politicians, so selecting the final 12 was no easy task. We looked for those who could create eye-catching and engaging content, had production skills, were good at storytelling and were showing some sort of creative thinking through their videos,” commented Christophe Wechsler, Head of Content & Creative at
