    If you want to do repping in the summer you need to apply now!!
    I did it, i did my training in Feb for the summer season. Be prepared for hard work tho! Espesh 18-30s.... its all about the sales figures so make sure u got some good selling skills, and make sure you can deal with drunk people!!
    As long as you with the right company you'll have a great time....as long as you not afta makin ££ cos you'll spend more than you'll make lol
    If u wanna PM i can give ya ne info u want :) x
    Flying over there is a bit risky as so many people do it! hard to get work and place 2 stay etc

    I worked for 7 months in Menorca last year as a kids rep and I absolutely loved it. I'm going again this year in May.

    Lexi is right you do need to apply now, but don't worry you've not left it too late...a lot of travel companies are desparate for reps when it gets to like July/August time (people wanting to go home, people being sacked etc) and its high season. I applied for repping in May and within a month I was there! It happened really fast.

    Flying over to look for bar work is a bit dodgy because so many people do that, its better to have connections and have a job lined up for already, even though I know thats not always possible.

    If you don't mind working with kids how about applying for Camp America? I applied last year and got in but it all fell through last minute. If you want to apply for that though you need to get your skates on :)
