You’ll also be given $20,000 for travel expenses alone.

Skyscanner is offering one lucky Aussie $40,000 to travel around the globe for six months.

Yes, that’s right, this is not a drill, people!

Everyone’s favourite travel search engine will pay one aspiring jet setter loads of cash to visit some of the world's best hotspots as part of their new Ultimate Travel Hacker competition.

I mean, is there a better or cheaper way to see the big wide world? I don’t think so.

However, aside from receiving a hefty cheque, you’ll also be given $20,000 for travel expenses as well.

Whether you’ve always wanted to go snorkelling in the Maldives or indulge in some pure vino across some bountiful vineyards in Italy, now is your chance!

All you’ll be required to do on your journey is to undertake challenges that test popular travel hack theories and document your experience to help travellers understand if they’re legit.

People will come to you for the best travel hack answers!

Not to mention, the application process itself is a blast.

All you have to do is simply duet Skyscanner’s TikTok or remix their Instagram video with your best travel hack answers.

So, if your top hack is signing up for a hotel loyalty rewards program, rolling your clothes in your suitcase or befriending locals on the first day to uncover hidden gems, Skyscanner wants to know all about it.

Don’t forget to use the #SkyscannerUltimateTravelHacker hashtag so they can view your video.

However, sadly minors, this competition is only for those 18 and up. Sorry, kiddos, better luck next time!

Skyscanner is ultimately looking for someone with a suitcase (duh! It’s for long travel), a flexible schedule (as you’ll be going on multiple trips to different locations), and a passion for content.

If you’re someone that has a love for sharing ideas and is hugely creative, then this competition is right up your alley.

If you would like to learn more about this special offer before applying, head to the Skyscanner website here.

So start filming and editing, folks. May the best globetrotter win!
