Remote Year vs Terminal 3. What's the difference, anyway?

You must be competitors, right?

Great question — our last applicant had the same one when she signed up to Terminal 3! However, once you understand what we both do, the differences are clear. So, how about a crash course in what makes us both unique?

Remote Year is a popular choice for a travel and remote work program. The program has facilitated many remote workers to take the plunge to travel and work remotely. We've heard a lot of feedback from people on the program.

Here's why our customers told us they picked Terminal 3 instead of Remote Year.

Flexibility to travel for one month to six months.

Here's the big reason we hear over and over again:

Remote Year offers a one year program as the name suggests. Traveling for twelve months is

indeed a huge commitment. You may sign up and then realise a few months later Remote Year isn't for you. By then it's too late.

Here's what a recent applicant said:

I looked at numerous other options, including Remote Year & WiFi Tribe. What Terminal 3 does best is the flexibility to accommodate both new and experienced remote workers by offering a minimum one month program and the possibility to extend.

This means with Remote Year there is no opportunity to:

  • “Test the waters by joining for one month”
  • “Travel and work remotely for a few months”
  • Be part of a program that addresses my needs. 

The flexibility of Terminal 3 allows you to work around your calendar. You tell us what works for you, not the other way around.

Down Payment of $1,450 only!

Upon accepted, Remote Year requires a down payment of $5,000. This is a hefty amount of money to pay upfront.

At Terminal 3 you only pay a down payment of $1,450!

And if you're waiting on your paycheck, a deposit of $500 will hold your spot.

The remaining balance of $950 is payable 90 days before your start date.

This means your down payment at Terminal 3 is less than half price. Why pay more if you don't have to?

Travel with a small(er) group

Try going away with a bunch of 75 people at Remote Year. Sharing co work space with 75 people plus the dozens of coworkers already signed up. If you're an introvert you'll be lucky to get some 'me' time. 

Terminal 3 caps the group size to a maximum of 30. Create meaningful relationships with a family like community.

Introverts, extroverts and ambiverts, you're all welcome!

Wait, you offer coaching sessions?

Taking your job on the road, managing time zones, exploring new cultures every month whilst getting over culture shock, with so much to see, do, eat, experience, we often fall into the trap of neglecting our goals.

Remote Year offers 'personal development tracks' however Terminal 3 goes a dozen steps ahead.

Besides personal and professional development tracks, we offer 1 on 1 coaching sessions every single month. And because Terminal 3 truly cares about your growth, every week your coach will schedule a weekly check-in to keep you on track. Your coaching session begins a month before your start date. Why? This gives you a chance to build a relationship with your coach and develop a plan of action before joining the program.

At Terminal 3 we champion your growth from day one.
