What are 18-30s working holidays?

18-30s working holidays are schemes that allow young adults to travel abroad and support themselves financially while there. Specifically targeting the 18-30 age group, these working holidays are designed for people at a pivotal stage in their lives. 

Going on a working holiday for 18-30s is an opportunity to explore the world, make friends and gain some vital work experience. Longer than an average holiday but shorter than spending a year abroad, working holidays give you a taste of what life is like in a foreign country. 

If you like to work hard and party hard, we have some amazing job opportunities lined up in some of the hottest club destinations in Europe. Once you’ve finished work, you get to spend your days on the beach and your nights in the club. What could be better?

Why go on an 18-30s working holiday?

18-30 is the ideal age to work abroad for a season. At this stage in life, socialising, adventuring and gaining valuable life experience is what matters most. Working abroad gives you all of these things. 

If you’ve just left school and are looking to get your first taste of the world of work, this is the way to do it. You’ll meet loads of like-minded people your age, get to spend a few weeks somewhere sunny and end up with a much more impressive CV. 

Maybe you’re a university student looking to make some extra cash over the summer. Or, if you’re not a stranger to working life, getting a job abroad can boost your skillset and provide a break from the daily grind.

Whether you’re 18, 30 or somewhere in between, a working holiday gives you the benefits of:

  • Travel
  • Personal growth
  • Experiencing new cultures 
  • Career development 
  • Meeting people 

To top it all off, you’ll get to sunbathe, party and have endless amounts of fun… all while getting paid!

Our application process is nice and easy. You just need to tell us a few details about yourself and let us know what your ideal location is. From there, we’ll find the perfect placement for you and get back in touch with confirmation. Read more on our how it works page.

How do I prepare for my 18-30s working holiday?

Once your application is confirmed as successful, we’ll send you a welcome pack containing everything you need to know. We recommend joining our members-only Facebook group at this point too. That way, you’ll be able to make connections before you arrive.

What’s included in the working holiday?

The amount you pay for your Ace Working Holiday will cover your accommodation, but you’ll need to sort out your flights and insurance. When you organise your flights is also a great time to check if you need a visa or work permit.

How do I get the most out of my working holiday?

It’s natural to want to make the most of your working holiday. Building connections and staying open to new experiences are the best ways of doing this. But you might also enjoy exploring the local area – and you could even try to learn the language while you’re at it!

Where does the term 18-30s come from?

The term 18-30s was popularised by Club 18-30 in the 1970s. The club offered cheap holidays to young singles and couples and is credited with starting the craze of young brits heading abroad to party. While the original Club 18-30 doesn’t exist anymore, that doesn’t stop its legacy from living on.

How much can I earn on an 18-30s working holiday?

This depends on the role and resort, but this is usually anywhere between 30 and 100 euros per day.
