Canvas is one of the best paid at 477 a month for a courier position. However, nobody is in it for the money!

Its definitely not a job to do for the money!

As accomodation is free, you only have to spend your money on food
- which if you eat as a group isn't that expensive.

After that you can spend as much or as little as you want on going
out and drinking so it is possible to save money, but most people I
know treat it as a holiday job and don't worry about money.

forget money and food, beers all you need, it is a holiday, the only world you know is with in the campsite resort outside of that who cares what happens and the best thing, all your bank satements will be sent to england so you cant get worried about money until the winter starts and your back home in the real world, what ever your wages will be, take the job your have a great time, but for referance your be looking at a hundred quid a week ruffly with what ever job or company

Kalimotxo is an even better drink, equal quantities of cheap red wine in a tetra pak and coca cola with lots of ice. The wine only costs about 0.85 for a carton, and it's a great, typical basque drink!

You don't even need to go for bad stuff or mixing - you can get some
decent wine at around 1.50 a bottle - which even on a couriers
wage is affordable

From their website Canvas paid 477 last year - hopefully their pay-
rise will be as big!

I seem to remember Vacansoleil always paid the best

What did they do? Surely its a case of companies are good to
couriers and campsites that are doing well, but if a site's failing, they
start to kick off.

I know Holidaybreak messed around their couriers for both Keycamp
and Eurocamp on the site I was at a couple of years ago - but when
you saw the scores they were getting it wasn't that surprising.
