What if this summer you were paid to travel on night trains in Europe? While the plane is increasingly criticized for its high carbon footprint, rail transport is gradually regaining its stripes. Proof of this is that several night trains are appearing in Europe this year, such as Brussels-Berlin, Hamburg-Stockholm and Zurich-Prague. It is in this context that the company Radical Storage, specialized in luggage storage, makes a most attractive offer.

The company, which at the same time secures a nice publicity stunt, is looking for a person to be an "official tester of night trains", it writes on its website. The mission of the latter? Explore Europe this summer, trying five night train routes of your choice. "The ideal candidate will be able to show us and our readers the true experience of the night train and why other people should (or shouldn't) consider these trains for their next big trip," says Radical Storage, formerly known as Bagbnb.

Produce detailed reports
To apply, candidates must be 18 years old and able to travel to Europe, with valid travel documents. They must also have a good level of English, to be able to make detailed reports (sleep quality, standing, luggage compartment, staff quality...) to Radical Storage on their railway experiences. Finally, it will (of course) be necessary to evaluate the various services offered by the company specializing in luggage storage.
In addition to paying for the five night train journeys, Radical Storage offers its "tester" a one-month Interrail pass (which offers up to 7 days of travel), a month of Radical Storage luggage storage, but also compensation of £500 (approx. 575 euros).
