You could get paid £15,000 to travel in Europe as an official ‘sun bed tester’

A travel company is looking for an official sun lounger tester who will be given £15,000 to spend on holidays.

This summer, Hotels.com is hiring one Brit for the dreamy job which will require them to travel around Europe and test out the best and most unique hotel sun lounging set ups.

Travellers who pine after a summer of sun, fun and relaxation will find their goals funded by the hotel company in 2022.

Research from Hotels.com’s ‘The Sun-ner Travel’ survey found that eight in ten (80%) believed basking in the sun on holiday or lounging around the pool was a great way to relax and escape reality.

And, one in five (22%) claimed their dream job would be a professional sun lounge tester – more so than a mattress jumping reviewer or a sky dive instructor.

Over half of respondents (56%) say it’s important to come back from a trip with a sun kissed glow and 45% agree that they look immeasurably better when tanned – with the average person spending more than two hours a day sunbathing while on holiday.

So, Hotels.com have made that dream into a reality.

The first ever Hotels.com ‘Sun Lounger’ will be tasked to enjoy it all, as they will get £15,000 to spend on Hotels.com properties, where they can travel to test out the best sun lounging experiences.

Emma Tagg, spokesperson from Hotels.com brand, said: "We’re all about finding your perfect somewhere and sunbathing is a great way to really switch off from your daily worries and focus on relaxing.

Who wouldn’t want the job as a professional sunbather?! We’ve seen searches increase by 25% for July and August compared to 2021.

“So it’s clear that Brits are ready to go abroad and lounge around the pool.

“Popular spots such as Spain, USA, France and Italy remain the most searched for this summer.

“However, we found that Turkey is rocketing in popularity with searches up 260% compared to last year.

“If you’re heading poolside this summer, you can book your perfect stay, with 30% off in our members only sale.”
