Ofir Sahar, chie executive and founder of Insuranks, said: “If there was ever an ultimate dream job, this is definitely it. Who wouldn’t want to travel around the world, collect experiences, make memories and get paid to do it?
"We’re offering just that. The person we pick to win this dream job won’t have to spend a penny - we’ll foot the entire bill of their travels. Whether they visit a country for seven days or 14 days; each month is guaranteed to offer something new and exciting. As a great world traveller myself, this is a job I can only wish I had found earlier in my life.
“We all require insurance each and every year, whether that’s home, travel, car, business, medical or something else entirely. We often pick those which offer the cheapest package or select companies we have heard of - but now we want to put various packages and companies to the test to see if they really are as good as we believe them to be – and report it to our audience. Ultimately, it’s about ensuring the customer gets the best value for their money.”
