During Your Adventure
Support Through AdventureEXP
We know what it’s like to travel and work away from home. Although it’s one of the most rewarding experiences you can take early in your career, it of course comes with challenges. AdventureEXP is here helping you every step of the way with Adventure Advising before your trip, Adventure orientation, excursions during your program and emergency support for everything in between.

Cost of Living Calculator
Ensure you have created and know your budget for your Adventure. Decide your savings goals like the cost of school or a vacation with friends you meet on your program. This all starts with understanding your anticipated income, current expenses and setting savings goals that make sense for you.
Speak with your Adventure Guide about your budget and let AdventureEXP help you with our budget toolkit.
PTO & Travel During Adventure
We know you’re already traveling for your Adventure through AdventureEXP but we feel taking time for yourself is critical in success during your experience. It’s so important to take care of your mental & emotional health by taking time off from work and doing what you love – travel, read, sleep in, go backpacking or finding that cool natural hot spring every local always talks about.
Your vacation time will depend on your employer and the job you select for your Adventure. Speak with your supervisor and Human Resources to understand the policy around PTO and how to request time off. Remember that PTO is actually part of your benefits package and should be used in whatever way makes you the happiest.
As for traveling outside your working location during your program, AdventureEXP supports you and more importantly, trusts you. Make decisions during your placement that both make you happy and meet the expectations of your employer. Talk to your Adventure Guide for ideas on local/regional travel.
As an employee in the United States, you will pay all local, state and federal taxes as elected in your W-4 when you onboard with your employer.
You may however be eligible for some tax benefits depending on the amount you earn during your program and if your program is the only earnings you have during the year.
Your employer will provide you with a copy of your W-2 for you to file your own taxes.
AdventureEXP is not a tax professional but we can recommend services when it comes to filing your taxes.
