When is the best time to go to Zante?
Early Zante workers are our first guests to head off, dates run from April to July, but you can stay on for the closing parties - we’ll help you secure further accommodation when you’re out there. If it’s your first time working abroad, we recommend going out earlier, it’s easier to get your bearings when it’s a little quieter than to jump in at the deep end mid season!
What are the wages like in Zante?
The average wage is between €30-50, this is absolutely plenty when you consider that a beer or a vodka will be around €3, and Zante measures are generous!
Bare in mind - this doesn’t include tips and commission, so turn up the charm and you’ll have more money than you know what to do with...
How many hours a day will I be working in Zante?
Hours and shifts will vary depending on your job of choice. Ticket sellers can expect to be out enhancing their tan on the job, whilst bar workers will obviously start later. The average shift is between 4-6 hours, this leaves you with plenty of time to go on a turtle spotting excursion, visit the waterpark, or go for a round of mini golf!
As the pay is so good and the shifts are so short, most of our Summer Takeover crew work every day to maximise their earnings. See our jobs tab for more information. Work hard, play harder...
