You can now get paid up to £300 to test out Christmas markets in the UK and Germany

Premier Inn is looking for Christmas markets testers to visit locations in the UK, Ireland and Germany and report back on the festive fun for other holidaymakers

Christmas markets weren’t on the cards last year, but this festive season Premier Inn is offering Brits the perfect opportunity to make up for lost Christmas fun.

That’s because the hotel chain is offering to pay holidaymakers to visit popular markets in UK, Ireland and Germany, to report back on whether they live up to the hype.

Yep, that includes wandering around the stalls, listening to festive music and, if you fancy one, a cheeky mulled wine or hot chocolate to stay warm on those chilly winter nights.

There are five ‘Christmas Market Tester’ roles up for grabs, with each person getting to choose their top two market choices from London, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Dublin or Frankfurt.

All you’ll need to do is take some photos of the decorations and report back on the festive atmosphere, which Premier Inn will use in a report to highlight the best market locations for future holidaymakers.

In return you’ll receive a total of £150 spending money and a stay (with breakfast) at a Premier Inn hotel close to your chosen market. Oh, and you can bring a friend along for the adventure too!

For those who head to Frankfurt or Dublin, you’ll receive up to £300 total spending money, flights and a two-night stay at a Premier Inn hotel (also with breakfast).
