Hipcamp Journal

Get Paid to Road Trip for Hipcamp

As a Field Scout, shoot new properties and make money while having fun.


We giddily squeeze our lives into the back of a pickup, embracing those janky baby-wipe showers and the manic euphoria of pulling into a gas station after running on fumes for 30 miles. We road trip because we like getting thrusted into unfamiliar situations that force us to live in the moment.

So, fellow nomads, van-lifers, relentless guarders of car cupholders, and savage champions of the Passenger's Bill of Rights, we are pleased to present Field Scout Road Trips. Field Scouts can claim these trips and get paid to take photos of each property they visit. (You're not a Field Scout, but you'd like to learn more about becoming one? No problem. Read up on how to Field Scout for us here, and then send in your application here.)

If you're interested in one of these thoughtfully-curated trips, click the claim button below it to get in touch with us. You must be a Field Scout to participate, and your last booking should be no later than 5 weeks from the day you claim your Road Trip. We'll help you coordinate the trip and make sure everything is taken care of on our side.

Get paid to road trip and make memories—it's that simple.
