Travel Compensation

Travelers are compensated differently than permanent or per-diem employees.

A traveler may earn more annually for similar roles when considering compensation perks such as reimbursable travel costs, non-taxable lodging, and non-taxable per-diems.

Do all travel contracts pay the same?

Travel compensation varies per assignment. The more flexible you are, the higher your earning potential; this includes being open to various geographic areas and all shifts. Experienced travelers often command higher pay packages.
