Around since 1965, Club 18-30 can truly claim to have pioneered clubbing holidays, and 45 years later, they’re still going strong, taking 100,000 people every year to the worlds best clubbing destinations. The clubbing hot spots have changed over the years, and new scenes emerging in Gumbet, Turkey and Sunny Beach, Bulgaria sit alongside the classic resorts of San Antonio, Ayia Napa and Magaluf in what is a bigger than ever offering. New for 2011 are all inclusive hotels, the TwiceasNice hotels in Malia and Napa and the first ever beach club, which offers visitors to the Quayside Village in Kavos, free sports and gym for their holiday.
As well as offering amazingly cheap holidays, Club 18-30 has a unique selling point that many have tried and failed to copy in the past; the iconic Club 18-30 reps, who work tirelessly from dawn to dusk to ensure that their guests are smiling and that the sun is shining. With the best guest to rep ratio in travel, the reps don’t just lead the fun on nights out but have a grueling schedule of airport runs, organisation and very late nights. It’s no wonder you’ll see them letting their hair down in epic style at The Big Reunions in November!
We caught up with 3 of the best, to get a brief look at what the life of a Club 18-30 rep involves. If you think that you have what it takes to be outgoing, positive, organised and most of all fun for the 5 months of summer keep an eye on the Club 18-30 recruitment page, where opportunities to join the 150+ army of reps are advertised.
