Budget Travel ~ ” Hawaii has just launched a new “travel” program focused on remote work from the Hawaiian Islands. The state/private-supported program, “Movers & Shakas” will initially provide 50 FREE roundtrip flights to Oahu to pre-employed people who must stay a minimum of one month. In exchange, they need to give a few hours/week to a nonprofit that fits their skillset. So there is a great volunteer component for those looking to give back while traveling. Additional incentives include discounted rates with hotels, restaurants, etc. Deadline to apply is Dec. 15.

The goal of the program is to help boost Hawaii’s economy outside of traditional tourism – especially with how dependent/impacted Hawaii is on air travel and recent/new mainland state travel restrictions. Hawaii has one of the lowest COVID-19 rates, so working in a safe environment is another positive. ” ~ Budget Travel
