TravelBird is delighted to announce the establishment of the TravelBird Scholarship, which will enable a talented and motivated student to work at their Amsterdam office for a period of 3 to 6 months. TravelBird is all about putting together the most inspiring offers and creating engaging, illuminating content so that visitors to their website don’t need to think twice about where to look for their next holiday experience.

What inspires you to travel? What sort of things do you want to see, do and experience on holiday? Do you think long and hard about where you want to go or do you book your next adventure according to what inspires you on any given day? These are the kinds of questions that are asked every day at TravelBird. They are on the lookout for talented and creative individuals that share this vision of inspiring each and every day.
