The typical starting salary is £12,000 a year and travel representatives also get free accommodation, insurance and in some cases commissions for providing extra assistance.
There is a worldwide demand for good English teachers. Contracts are typically short, which means you can literally travel the world as you teach English in Asia, South America, Europe and/or Africa.

Flight attendants work hard but also earn great benefits. Delta, for instance, offers profit sharing, holiday pay, and various other incentives.
