Great destinations for working holidays

An estimated 60% of adults were initially forced to work from home during the pandemic, which has resulted in 4.3 million employees now having flexible working contracts, as many of us simply didn’t realise that we would be able to do our jobs from home.Workers have more flexibility with where they work, much more than simply deciding whether they want to work in the office or from their kitchen table, as there’s been an upsurge of people taking their work abroad and taking on the “half tourist” way of life.

As 39% of UK workers recently revealed they had worked while on a holiday abroad in 2022, and searches for “working holiday” have seen an enormous 253.8% uplift in the last month alone, Wizz Air reveals the best destinations for working holidays.

Famed for its pristine white sand beaches, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern influenced cuisine and historical sites, Cyprus is truly a mecca which offers something for every type of worker. Spend your working day basking in the sunshine while replying to those important emails (somehow emails are much more manageable when your immediate view is turquoise waters caressing a stunning beach!) and unwind in the evening with a meze, paired with sweet Cypriot wine. 

For culture vultures, spend time exploring the ancient ruins on the island, from the birthplace of Aphrodite to the amphitheatre and Roman baths. Those who need more of a release from a busy day at work can spend an adrenaline-filled evening parasailing, waterskiing and sea kayaking, with many operators offering incredible night sea kayaking opportunities.
